4. Prepare for the exam

At KTH, different forms of examination apply in different courses. Some courses apply written exams to check that students have attained the knowledge and skill goals set for the course. In other courses, students' knowledge will be tested through an assignment or project task.

Before the exam, read the course memo about the course exam. For many exams, you must register for the exam in Ladok for students. You have to register in advance for all written exams and minor tests, for example, partial exams held during an exam period.
