Grading scale

P, F


  • EXA1 - Examination, 7.5 credits, grading scale: P, 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

Homework, Labs and an individual Project

The project should be individual and connected to your research. This part of the course can be finished later, in most cases hopefully by producing a scientific  publication, where at least one of the statistical methods learnt in the course should be included.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
