the exam dates of Functional Analysis and M1 Algebraic Geometry 1 have been changed.
The new dates are:
- Functional Analysis: 9 January 2017, 10:00-13:00, VU Amsterdam
- M1 Algebraic Geometry 1: 3 January 2017, 10:00-13:00, VU Amsterdam
The reasons for these changes are:
1. Both teachers of Functional Analysis are not in the Netherlands on the original exam date;2. There were complaints from students of Algebraic Geometry and Algebraic Number Theory that the exams were on the same day in different cities, making it impossible to do both exams.
Therefore I tried to find a solution that would fix both problems taking into account all other courses and registered students (>600). I realize that for some of you these new dates are not optimal. However, I have to plan all the Mastermath exams within 2 weeks, without having overlapping exams. The retakes are all 3 weeks later, and have to be before the second semester starts. These are simply the rules. This gives me very limited options for planning a whole exam schedule.
