Department of Information Technology


This course uses continuous examination. Instead of one big final exam, there will be group assignments.

These are done in groups of 3 students, and of course all three should participate actively in the work. Hand-ins should be either on paper using a signed cover page, or (preferrably) using signed email using a trusted key/cert. The deadlines for handins are strict. Handins give score, not G/U: thus no "komplettering"/"completions". Handins represent parts of what would have been the big final exam.

Each assignment will have a maximum score related to the amount of time you should have spent studying. The sum of your score will give your grade for each block: 50/75% for G/VG. (Note the extra requirement for top grade on full course, below.)

Basic block and extension block

The course is split in two parts (exam codes). Each of these must be passed to pass the course.

  • A basic block, 2 course credits.
  • An extension block, 3 course credits, which consists of 8 subjects, where any 7 together represent "max score". You can thus skip one subject if you get (or feel confident that you will get) sufficient points on the others.

One item in the extension block is to write a report (2-3 pages) on a chosen subject, and make an oral presentation on October 21. Details about format, subjects etc will be announced. This item is mandatory to get a top grade (VG) on the course as a whole.


If you fail a block, you will get additional assignments on the relevant subjects during the winter. Hand-out and hand-in dates will be announced later.
