    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

    Exam in one or more subjects
    Subject/module is tested with the following modules
    There are three part-exams in the semester, each weighted 20 pct., 20 pct. and 60 pct. The exams are with an internal examiner.
    - The student must take part in all the part-exams and submit an assignment. Otherwise, one will be disenrolled from the programme.
    - Part-exam 1 and part-exam 2 need not necessarily be passed.
    - Part-exam 3, also known as the semester project, must be passed.
    - The semester is passed, if the student achieves a total grade of 02 without rounding up.
    - If the semester is not passed, the student must take part in re-exams of those part-exams, that was not passed, so the total semester is passed.
    - If more than one part-exam is not passed, the re-exams must be passed in the same order, they had on the semester, until the total semester is passed.

    When the part-exams will take place, will be published on KEA's learning platform at the start of the semester.
    Type of exam
    Combined written and oral examination
    The part-exams that are weighted 20 pct. are written exams.

    The part-exams test whether the learning objectives for the individual semester modules have been. However, the part-exams that are weighted 20 pct. focus mainly on the learning objectives for the knowledge and skills categories.

    The part-exam that is weighted 60 pct. is a written assignment with an individual oral defence.
    It is the project submitted by the student that serves as the starting point for the oral part of the part-exam that is weighted 60 pct. The 60 pct. part-exam tests the learning objectives within the categories of knowledge, skills and competencies for all the semester modules.

    The oral exam lasts 30 min. incl. grading. An overall grade is given according to the 7-point grading scale.
    Formal requirements
    The exam project must be interdisciplinary and problem oriented.

    The School lays down the actual requirements for the project, which will combine essential fields of the 2rd semester teaching. The School must secure that the project description and any assignment formalia is given to the students and the examiners.
