Frequently Asked Questions

I did not complete my lab before deadline, what should I do?
Complete your lab and when it is scheduled next year you go to that session(s) and demonstrate. If your lab is replace with a new lab, do the new lab instead.
I did not pass the computer exam and I'm leaving Sweden soon, can you help me please, I'll do anything!
You are asking the wrong question to the wrong person at the wrong time. You should instead ask Yourself what You can do to pass the exam with certitude. You should raise this question to yourself at the beginning of the course. And you should think of how the teachers can support you during the quest for knowledge. The computer exam will be the only way to pass as long as I'm examiner.
On the exam I think there was a mistake with the correction of my solution. Can you look at it again?
Yes. I can.
I have this personal problem ..., Can you consider me as a special case for grade 3?
If you have some kind of disability you should read about special needs and contact a coordinator and ask them to organize special support for you. Unless the request come from them I'm unable to help.
What if I miss a deadline?
You have to remember to meet that deadline the next year the course is given. It's not possible to do it sooner.
Can I get extended deadline because <insert your reason here>?
No. Unless you supply proof of illness or attending a funeral or similar. It involves to much work to administer deadline extensions for every second student. Use our time to learn more instead of requesting personal benefits. If your delay is due to faults on our side (illness, schedule changes...) we will adjust deadlines without you asking.

Yes. As long as it is before the deadline and on scheduled time.
