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
  • PRO1 - Project, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 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.

Other requirements for final grade

A Pass grade in the entire course requires at least grade E on TEN1, at least grade E on LAB1 and P on PRO1. The course grade is given as the weighted mean of TEN1 and LAB1 according to formula: ((TEN1*3) + (LAB1*4.5))/7.5, where grades correspond to numbers according to the following: E = 1; D = 2; C = 3; B = 4 and A = 5.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

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.
