FAQ:Do I have to register for/participate in the tutorials if i already got active and continuous participation earlier?
No, you don't have to. As Bachelor these two pillars are already recorded in Campus Managment. As Diplomate be sure to be able to prove
that you already achived these pillars. It still would be a good idea to participate
, though. Without constant exercise you have no idea what our focus is and it's probalbly way more difficult to succeed in the examination, too
