Exams and marks
Your exams at the IT University can be oral or written or both. The exam language will be the same as the language the course is taught in. This means that for all courses taught in English the exam will also be in English.
For each course, your lecturer will provide you with information about the exam. If you have any questions, ask your lecturer, and if you’re still in doubt ask the student advisors at the IT University.
Demonstrate your grasp of the subject
Demonstrating your grasp of the subject is emphasised in all exams. When you do a memorised presentation of your subject, you must be able to discuss the details afterwards. Purely memorising will most likely result in a below-average mark whereas demonstrating your grasp of the curriculum can give you an above-average mark.
Another key factor at exams is your ability to demonstrate independent comprehension. Do not confuse politeness with hesitation, and always be ready to demonstrate your ability to discuss fresh perspectives. Most often you can bring books, notes, a written presentation and even slides for the exam.
Most exams will be assessed according to the 7-point marking scale. Read more about the 7-point marking scale and the relationship between the 7-point marking scale and the ECTS scale.
Certain examinations will still be marked only as pass/fail.
Familiarize yourself with rules and obligations
Please note that IT University expects all students to familiarize themselves with rules and obligations governing studies and exams at the university.
