Examination och betyg

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

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.

The examination is based on:
• individual case assignment(s) (ILO 3, 4, 5)
• group assignment (ILO 3, 4, 5, 6)
• case seminar(s) (ILO 3, 4, 5)
• individual written exam (ILO 1, 2)

You will at least need an E on every assignment to pass the course. In order to receive the higher grades (A or B) on the course as a whole, the average grade for the group assignment and the individual written exam needs to be at least B.
