### Evaluation

### Examination

__Prerequisites__:

In order to register for exam, ALL course assignments must be handed in on WiseFlow during the semester.

At least 80% of the assignments must be handed in before a given deadline in order to register for the exam.

__Type of examination__:

Oral Exam with an external examiner.

25 minutes per student in total incl. grading.

The exam will be based on course assignments solved and handed in to given deadlines during the semester.

The student must bring all the assignments on paper for the exam.

On the exam day, there will be a draw between the subjects covered by the course assignments. Several course assignment may enter into the drawn subject.

__Re-exams__:

Evaluation is performed as an oral examination using the same method as the ordinary exam.
