2019-2020 Spring Semester

 

 

Dear Students

 

Following the general understanding of our department, we decided to postpone the midterm exam and the final exam.

 

Lectures and office hours (via e-mail and online meetings) will continue as stated in the previous announcement. Exams will be given in the extended period. Timing of that period will be determined by registrar (or YΦK).

For the time being we don't know when and how this period will be held.

 

Keep on studying the notes and do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any difficulty in understanding the material.
