Assessment Examinations are held after completion of teaching period and are mainly in the form of oral although some courses will have written tests taking place during the semester or before the oral examination. Each exam will have some specific dates offered during the exam period, and students can choose which date they wish to take the examination. They are also entitled to turn down a mark and take a reexamination if they feel unsatisfied with the result. Rules are applied to how often a student can take an exam within an examination period. Grading systems The grading is done according to a scale ranging from 0 to 30, with minimum 18 as a pass mark. A “cum laude” may be added to the highest grade (30; 30 e lode) as a mention of special distinction. All exam results calculate the overall degree mark on a scale of 0 – 110. The ultimate result is based on exam results plus the presentation of a project or dissertation presented in front of a Board of Examiners.
