Is practical project 1 (pp1) cancelled because of the changes to the exam phase in the sixth semester? Or how shall practical project 1 be incorporated into the extended sixth semester?

Is practical project 1 (pp1) cancelled because of the changes to the exam phase in the sixth semester? Or how shall practical project 1 be incorporated into the extended sixth semester?

pp1 was not cancelled. In the current situation it is feasible not to continue with the demanding shortening of the sixth semester. Someone studying within the standard study period would sit the last exams in June. This means that pp1 can be concluded during the lecture-free time between semesters without losing time in the seventh semester with practical project 2 (pp2) and the thesis. The current organization does not disadvantage anyone.
