Information regarding the general organization of the "Mechanics II" exam:

The first part of the exam starts at 8:15 and lasts until 10:00. The second part starts at 10:15 and lasts until 12:00. Each part consists of two examples and provides a maximum of 20 points per part. The overall points will be added and result in the final mark.
