Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 4,5 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 4,5 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

Written examination (TEN1, 4,5 cr)
Laborations and Seminar (LAB1, 4,5 cr)

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
