Reading Material

Exam

Exam Structure and Assessment

The exam consists of 30 questions of “multiple choice” type. For each of the questions, 5 points are given for a correct answer, and -1 point is given for a wrong answer, and 0 points for not answering the question. For each question, there is only one correct answer. Technically, the exam system allows selecting more than one option but in that case 0 points are given.

The total number of points needed to obtain a specific grade or to pass the exam is determined after the exam and in collaboration with an external censor.

Mandatory projects

In order to be allowed to participate and pass the MCQ exam, each student must hand in two mandatory projects during the course and have these approved before the exam, with the following exceptions: Participants who have followed a previous version of the course without such projects or who have had two such projects approved in a previous version of the course are not required to hand-in the projects again. See more details on the Projects page.

Course 02402 is offered in both Danish and English. The Danish version of the lectures is held during fall semesters.
