Grading scale

P, F


  • DEL1 - Participation, 2,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • DEL2 - Participation, 2,5 hp, betygsskala: 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

  • To solve all the problems in the literature for Part I.
  • To participate actively in at least one semester of the "Journal Club" for the group in theoretical elementary particle physics.
  • To participate actively in at least one international "summer school".
  • To read and understand any book on the phenomenology of elementary particle physics (not neutrino physics).

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
