The course examination consist of two parts, the written examination (3hp) and the laboratory (3hp).

Please, see LiTH Study Guide.

Written exam

The course end with a written exam that tests your understanding of the course contents covered in lectures and book(s). The exams will consist of approximately 10 questions for a total of 40 points. About 50% of the exam score will be related to programming, problem solving, state-machine or code questions (se previous exams). Passing the written exam yields 2hp. Preliminary grading will be according to (first match):

  • less than 20p   FAIL
  • less than 27p   3
  • less than 34p   4
  • up to incl 40p   5

N.B. Total achieved points are only a guideline for examination and grading. Individual results may be raised or lowered based on overall impression. This is most commonly applied to results near a limit. Thus there is no point in asking for more points, since pass or fail will alredy have been determined by the overall impression of your answers.

Old and upcoming exams

Dates, times and locations of the upcoming exams are best found from "studentportalens tentasearch". A short list of previous exams follow. Future exams will likely be similar in structure, basing several questions on a (made up) example.


During the course you will complete a set of laboratory assignments. Correctly completing all assignments on time yields another 4hp. If you miss the final deadline you are always welcome back next year. Laboratory tasks and related information can be found on the lab pages. Labs are to be done in pairs, not alone.
