De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Before you read any further, first a quick check: Have you registered for you exam?

Okay, now that you have, you might have noticed during previous exams or during your central exams at high school: they’re a serious thing! We love to help you out so we made this small illustration about things you should keep in mind while making  your exams.
