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.
Hand in assignments (INL1; 4,5 university credits) and a theory exam (TEN1; 3 university credits).
