Accessing the Exam:

After 10AM on Wednesday 12th of May you will be able to download your exam paper by logging in with your ZPass here:

You can either open the notebook with Visual Studio Code, or, if you want to use Colaboratory, you can go to

and select upload to upload the file.

Submitting the exam:

At the top of this page, there is a 'Make submission' button. Click on that to upload and submit your completed notebook. Make sure that your notebook is saved before you upload it. If you're using Colaboratory, you'll need to download your notebook then upload it.

You must submit before the deadline of 10PM Wednesday 12th of May for your submission to be accepted. Important points:
  • The exam is an individual assessment. Collaboration will be treated as plagiarism and academic misconduct.
  • The exam should not take you longer than 3-4 hours, but you have 12 hours, in case anything goes wrong.
  • The exam is a hurdle, meaning you need to get 50% or more on the exam to pass the course, even if your overall course mark is >50.
  • Partial marks are available for most questions, so include your code even if it doesn't work.
  • Revision Exercises (solutions)
