Marking criteria for written examination

This  guide is used by examiners for grading elective courses at the Faculty of Law. The guide is common to all elective courses at the bachelor’s and master’s degree levels and individual legal courses.

Note that the required prerequisite knowledge for courses at the bachelor’s level is different from elective courses at the master’s level. All criteria are to be included in the overall assessment. Each candidate is assessed individually with regards to the course's learning requirements; the active normal distribution curve is not implemented.
