Content:
This module was lecture-driven, and the assignments and exam were based entirely on the material presented in the lectures and tutorials. There was no required textbook for this module; however, the following book might be useful as a supplement:

M. Nielsen and I. Chuang, Quantum Computation and Quantum Information (Cambridge University Press)

Assessment:
Your mark for this module was based on your total continuous assessment mark (20%) and your exam mark (80%). The continuous assessment consisted of problem sets issued (roughly) every two weeks. They were made available on this webpage (see below) but should have been submitted as single legible PDFs to the module's Moodle page.

The examination took place on campus in the Small Sports Hall from 9:30am to 11:30am on Tuesday 24 May 2022. It comprised the other 80% of the module mark and consisted of three questions, all of which counted toward the total exam mark. The first two were 30 marks each and the third carried 40 marks; here it is and here are its solutions.

Below are all the problem sets which were assigned over the semester:

Problem Set 1 and its solutions (average mark: 21.6/30 = 72.0%)
Problem Set 2 and its solutions (average mark: 34.5/40 = 86.3%)
Problem Set 3 and its solutions (average mark: 21.4/30 = 71.3%)
Problem Set 4 and its solutions (average mark: 30.1/40 = 75.4%)
Problem Set 5 and its solutions (average mark: 28.7/40 = 71.8%)
