This is usually what happens in Germany too. Profs really try their hardest to be as fair as possible (in written tests. cleavage makes oral tests unfair).

But sometimes, you can actually talk to them. Like the 1st year foreign students who learned german in a year and then jumped straight to academic level...

Wanna know what's funny? I'm graduating Uni in the spring, never once had an oral exam. Not once. Ever.

Oral exams were much better than the written ones we had. And by written I mean the multiple choice shit that med students have to go through. For med students it was only about "passing", marks didn't count. For us they counted ><
