Grading policy at the Faculty of Informatics

USI Policies

The statements below on exams results are to be regarded as for information only. In the event of discrepancies and for all legal purposes, the Study Regulations of the Faculty of Informatics shall apply.

An examination may be graded on a binary basis (pass/fail) or on a numerical scale. The numerical scale goes from 1 to 10, including half-points, and the pass mark is 6. A pass in an examination results in credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System – ECTS – points) being awarded for the course concerned.

Any mid-course tests (projects, presentations, examination credits) are graded at the discretion of the lecturer. The lecturer independently determines whether and how such tests contribute to the final course mark. The lecturer must communicate the examination arrangements to students at the beginning of the course. For further information, please see the Study Regulations.
