There are four general exam forms:
• A. Written exam on premises
• B. Oral exams
• C. Hand-in exam
• D. Hand-in with following oral
And two special exam forms:
• E. Thesis exam - Hand-in with following Oral (master’s theses, bachelor projects and final projects on the diploma and master programmes)
• X. Experimental form
All exam forms have a number of variations which are primarily relevant to the external examiner and the examinees. Note, however, the crucial difference between the two variations of the D exam form (Hand-in with following oral):
D11: Hand-in with following oral exam based on the hand-in
The oral exam will be based on the hand-in only (the hand-in is the syllabus, so to speak).
The exam form is particularly intended for exams with no syllabus (i.e. theses and project base projects with no relation to acourse), but may also be employed at courses, where the exam will only revolve around the hand-in, not the course syllabus.
D22: Hand-in with following oral exam supplemented by the hand-in
The hand-in supplements a fixed syllabus in the course base.The exam form is suited four courses where learning activities are lecture based supplemented with project work.
All exams except for A exams can be held as group exams.
