Exam Collection

Regarding the oral exam protocols: we rely on students to write and send in their own protocols every semester. We're glad for every protocol you write for us (you may upload anonymously) and you can earn up to CHF 35.00 for a detailed protocol. You can find an example protocol below in German and in English so you know what we expect a protocol to look like. Once you have written it, please send it to along with your IBAN and your post code.

Example Quality Criteria

You'll also find the template for a protocol below. In order for it to compile, you have to download the Zip folders and copy the files "Template/Vorlage", "vmp", "vmp3" into a different folder on your computer.

The written exams of the Basispr├╝fung, block 1 and 2, as well as other written core and elective subjects that many students take are requested from the professors by the VMP themselves (by student affairs specifically). If you are missing an exam, please send us an email at

If you have any remarks, comments or feedback, or if an exam has been filed in the wrong place, feel free to contact us. Considering the amount of new exams we collect every semester, there are bound to be errors we have not seen ourselves.

Note to freshers: Linear Algebra I and II exams, including the ones from Prof. Pink, are at the bottom under "Altes Reglement" :)

We would like to offer more exams online. You can help us achieve that goal and make some money doing so. If you compile the solutions to an exam (all exercises included, written in LaTeX and the solution is not already accessible) you earn up to CHF 50.-. If the exam itself is not yet accessible online and you provide a LaTeX document containing the tasks you earn an additional CHF 25.-. If you have passed oral exams, please write a protocol with LaTeX and send it as a PDF and/or PS document to as explained above. You will earn up to CHF 60.-. Exams of the IFOR could be accessible on the homepage of the OBIS.


Every semester the VMP surveys the quality of lectures. This is helpful to both professors and students.

Interested in Studying at D-MATH or D-PHYS?

If you are interested in studies at one of the two departments but are still lacking information, you are in the right place. Our association (Verein der Mathematik- und Physikstudierenden an der ETH) is there to help. For any questions, send an E-mail to

If you are looking for a general impression of the ETH and studying in mathematics, physics or computational science and engineering we recommend taking part in our guided campus tours.

The tours are held by arrangement. Just provide a date which works well for you below and you will be contacted and given additional information. For example, you could attend a basic course lecture like Analysis or Linear Algebra and then meet with tutors on the Polyterrasse who will answer some first questions at lunch in the Cafeteria. Afterwards, if requested there may be a little tour around the main building. Please register with the form below and mention your preferred date. We wish you success with the selection of your studies and hope to see you soon, VMP
