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

If you have any remarks, comments or feedback, or if an exam has been filed in the wrong place, feel free to contact We appreciate any comments from you that help us improve this service.

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

Exam Collection


Cooperation: We would like to offer more exams online - you can help and earn money: If you create the solution to an exam (all tasks, LaTeX, solution does not already exist), you will receive up to CHF 50.-. If it is an exam that is not yet available online, you will receive an additional CHF 25.00 if you also create a LaTeX with the tasks. If you have taken any oral exams (Block II and higher), write a written protocol with LaTeX and send it as a PDF and/or PS file to as explained above. You will receive up to CHF 60.- as compensation.

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 at 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 what studying mathematics, physics or computational science and engineering might look like, we recommend taking part in our guided campus tours. Here, you'll have the opportunity to ask all of your questions during a tour of the ETH campus. Afterwards, you could visit one of the basic lectures like Analysis or Linear Algebra to gain a first impression of the studies.

The tours take place by arrangement. Just write us a mail, mention your prefered date and we'll contact you with more information.

We wish you much success with the selection of your studies and hope to see you soon, VMP
