Examination and completion

Grading scale

P, F


  • XUPP - Degree project, 15.0 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.

Assessment takes place by means of a written report, an oral presentation, and critical examination of another student's degree project. In the assessment of the degree project, the following points are specifically considered:

1. The work process of the project, including understanding of the assignment and its relevance for the future profession, and the student's ability to work independently and follow the time plan for the work.

2. Scientific contents, including understanding of the theoretical background

3. Presentation, i.e. written and oral presentation, including interpretation and analysis of results and a critical examination of a peer's degree project

The grading criteria of the course are distributed at the beginning of the course.

A student who has not completed their degree project within eight months risks failing the course, subject to the examiner's assessment

Other requirements for final grade

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.
