Examination rules Com: sessions, format, misconduct, time limits
NB: The following information on the results of examinations is for reference purposes only; in the event of any discrepancies and for any legal requirement, the text of the Study Regulations of the Faculty of Communication Sciences shall apply.
An examination may be graded on a binary basis (pass/fail) or on a numerical scale.
The numerical scale goes from 1 to 10, including half-points, and the pass mark is 6.
A pass in an examination results in credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System – ECTS – points) being awarded for the course concerned.
Any mid-course tests (projects, presentations, examination credits) are graded at the discretion of the lecturer. The lecturer independently determines whether and how such tests contribute to the final course mark. The lecturer must communicate the examination arrangements to students at the beginning of the course, and include them in the course description.
For further information, please see the Study Regulations.
