Attendance:

Unless otherwise stated by the teacher of the course module, at least 75% attendance at lectures and seminars is required.

  • Students who do not fulfil the requirements for attendance will be given extra assignments by the teacher, if the teacher deems it necessary.

At least 50% attendance is required at both seminars and lectures to be entitled to examination.

  • Exemption can be granted in agreement with the teacher under specific circumstances.

Attendance is only counted backwards for the preceding term, i.e. if one has attended a course module one must complete it with an examination during the subsequent term at the latest, otherwise one must attend the course again. Exemptions can only be granted by the Director of Studies in consultation with the teacher.

Examination:

Unless otherwise decided by the teacher, there will be an examination at the end of each course module.

  • In home exams an opportunity for supplementing inadequate responses is given. If the student does not pass after supplementing, an opportunity will be given for re-examination at the next occasion for collection of examinations.
  • Supplements should be submitted within ten days, unless decided otherwise by the teacher.
  • In the case of written examinations, an opportunity for re-examination will be arranged at the earliest two weeks after the results have been received. In the case of failing during re-examination, another opportunity for re-examination will be given during the next occasion for collection of examinations.
  • The examination should be corrected and graded within three weeks of the occasion of the examination and at least two weeks before re-examination.

Grading:

Written examinations:

  • Since the department finds it important to take the time factor into consideration during grading, a student who has not been examined during the regular occasion for examination (at the end of the course) cannot obtain a higher grade than C. Exemptions can only be granted by the Director of Studies in consultation with the teacher.
  • The best possible grade at re-examination of a written examination is C.

Home exams and other types of examination:

  • Since the department finds it important to take the time factor into consideration during grading, the highest possible grade for late submission of a home exam is C. Exemptions can only be granted by the Director of Studies in consultation with the teacher.
  • The highest possible grade when the student has received Fx in a home exam (or in a graded submitted exercise) is C.
    The grading of examinations or papers can not be appealed, but one has the right to receive a thorough explanation for the grade from the teacher.

Examination of papers

Papers for the Advanced course and the Master’s course will be examined after presentation in seminars with opposition. Failed papers can be supplemented and re-examined. If the paper is still not passed, the student has a right to continue working on it, albeit without supervision, and be re-examined. The student is allowed to demand a different examiner at the third submission, if he/she so desires.

Students who commence writing their papers during the spring term can submit their papers at the latest at the final seminar that is organized at the end of the summer and to be able to receive A as the highest grade possible. For students who write their papers during the autumn term an occasion for collection for the final seminar will be organized during the spring term in the beginning of April. After that the highest possible grade is C. Exceptions can be made in cases where the Director of Studies and the supervisor accept the reasons for the delay.

Students who have used up their time for supervision and who do not submit their paper for the final seminar or the collection seminar but who submit their paper at a later occasion must inform the Director of Studies at least one month in advance that they will be ready and want to attend and be examined in the next scheduled final seminar.

In the case of a failed paper and change of subject the student must re-attend modules C330 or M102 and M103, and the new paper must be submitted at a seminar with opposition.
