One needs to pass both these parts in order to pass the course.
Since VT15 the final grade in the course is based on the performance on both the assignments and the exam.
Weekly AssignmentsThere will be 7 assignments and the total amount of points for all assignments together will be 64 points.
To pass the assignment part of the course one needs to get at least 50% of the sum of the points of all the weekly assignments together, that is, one needs to get at least 32 points in total in the assignments.
Each assignment will be made available not later than 1 week before the deadline.

Final GradeThe final grade in the course is indicated by the equation and the table below, where
- EP are the total number of points obtained in the exam and
- EA are the total number of points obtained in the assignments.
Note: Remember that both parts of the course need to be passed in order to pass the whole course!!
- If a student gets 27 points in the exam and 32 points in the assignments, then the final points he/she will obtain are 27 + 32 x 0.1875 = 27 + 6 = 33. This student will pass the assignments with G, pass the exam with G or 3 (depending on the university), and pass the course with G or 3.
- If a Chalmers student gets 36 points in the exam and 47 points in the assignments, then the final points he/she will obtain are 36 + 48 x 0.1875 = 36 + 9 = 45. This student will pass the assignments with G, pass the exam with 3, and pass the course with 4.
- If a GU student gets 42 points in the exam and 52 points in the assignments, then the final points he/she will obtain are 42 + 52 x 0.1875 = 42 + 9.75 = 51.75. This student will pass the assignments with G, pass the exam with G, and pass the course with VG.
- Students who registered before VT13: Since NO re-exams are
offered for that course, these students MUST re-register in the new
version of the course and follow the NEW examination rules.
- Students who registered in VT13 or VT14 have obligatory
assignments and the final grade in the course is that of the exam.
Students who registered in VT13 or VT14 and that have NOT produced any points in the course could re-register to the course now and follow the NEW examination rules.
Students who registered in VT13 or VT14 and that HAVE produced some points in the course MUST follow the examination rules corresponding to VT13 or VT14.
- Students who registered in VT15 or later have exactly the same examination rules as those registered this year.
