Examination och betyg

Kursen bedöms med betygen A, B, C, D, E, FX eller F.

A passing course grade requires passing grades on both examinations.

The student’s ability to understand corporate finance from a cash flow perspective is evaluated through a written assignment and an individual written exam (mid-term and final) which focus both on understanding financial planning concepts and being able to calculate basic values of cash flows, risk and interest rates.

ILOs 1 to 5 are examined through the individual written exam.
ILOs 3 and 4 are examined through the assignment, which is carried out in groups of two.

The grades A, B, C, D and E are all passing grades. For courses with more than one examination, students are given a final grade based on an overall assessment of all examinations included in the course. The final grade of the course is issued only when all course units have been passed.

The examination is based on instruction and course literature.

The examination must allow for students to be assessed on an individual basis. Students may not make a second attempt at any examination (or element of examination) already passed in order to receive a higher grade. Further information concerning assessment and grading criteria is provided in a study guide distributed at the beginning of the course.

Students are guaranteed a minimum of three examination occasions, including the regular occasion.

If a student has failed the same examination three times, the student is entitled to request that the next examination is assessed and graded by a new examiner if possible. The decision to accept or reject such a request is made by the vice dean of education.

In case the course is terminated or significantly altered, examination according to the present course syllabus shall be offered on at least two occasions in the course of one year after the termination/alteration.

Poängregistrering av examinationen för kursen sker enligt följande system:
Individuell skriftlig tentamen 12 hpA/B/C/D/E/FX/F

At the end of the course, a course evaluation is performed and commented on by the course coordinator and, if possible, a student/students (course developer/s). The course evaluation, which is published on the relevant learning platform and submitted to the study administration, is to function as a basis for future improvements to the course.
