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


  • TEN1 - Examination, 5,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • ÖVN1 - Computer Exercises, 3,0 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.

TEN1 - Examination, 5 credits, grade A, B, C, D, E, FX, F both theoretical and practical moments.

ÖVN1 - Laboratory work, 3 credits, grade  A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

The results from TEN1 and ÖVN1 will be weighed together
