About course examination

Your education at KTH is divided into courses that are examined separately. The courses are in turn usually divided into examination parts. The examination is designed to cover all intended learning outcomes.

You can find information about which examination applies to each course at the start of the course or in the course memo. Your courses may have different ways of being examined. Some courses end with a written or oral exam, while others are examined by an assignment or project.
