The 2007 examination, if passed, is graded on a scale from 0 to 1 (grade may be fractional). The smallest passed grade is 0. The grade is a monotonic, but not necessarily linear, function of total points from the examination. We have used E=(PT-15)/15, where PT are the total points from the examination (smallest passed total points being PT=15, highest PT=30) - the exact formula may however change depending, for example, on the difficulty of the examination. Denote the examination grade by E.
The 2007 term project, if passed, is graded on a scale from 0 to 1 (grade may be fractional). The smallest passed grade is 0. Denote the term project grade by T.
The 2007 problem sessions are graded on a scale from 0 to 1 (grade may be fractional). The grade of 0 corresponds to no points from the problem sessions. Denote the problem session grade by P.
The course grade is then given by
Some general guidelines for grading of the examination and term project answers are given below (which are quite similar to the grading criteria of the Finnish high school final examination, "reaalikoe"). Notice that in addition to having a correct factual content a good answer should be, among other things, understandable for the examiner.
