    Exam criteria
    The test is graded according to the 7-step scale by the examiner and external censor.
    An individual grade is given based on an overall assessment of the documentation report, digital product, presentation and individual examination.
    The performance is assessed in relation to the fulfillment of the learning objectives of the program as described in the curriculum.
    Spelling and writing abilities
    Students’ spelling and writing skills are assessed in the final exam project. The assessment is an overall assessment of the academic content and students’ spelling and writing skills, the academic content carrying the most weight. If there are many spelling and writing mistakes, this may result in a lower grade, for instance from grade 7 to grade 4.
    Re-examination and re-examination due to illness
    Students who fail an exam have another two attempts.
    The re-exam will be held immediately after the first exam attempt.
    A student is entitled to sit a re-exam based on the same project, a reworked project or a completely new project. KEA offers advice on the pros and cons of the three methods in relation to the individual student's assignment. The re-exam has the same purpose as the ordinary exam.

    Reexam due to documented illness or other documented reason(s), is held as soon as possible.
