Understanding marks given according to the Danish grading scale
As a student at CBS, you can expect to have any of the following exam types:
|Written exam||Combination written and oral exam||Oral exam|
|Home||Written project/ assignment/ case|
|Home & on-campus||
1) Oral exam based on written assignment
2) Oral exam based on written assignment and curriculum
1) With aids
2) Without aids
1) Based or not based on written synopsis
2) With or without preparation
3) With or without aids
An oral exam on the basis of a written project is made up of two parts; both are taken into account when your grade is determined:
- A written project you have turned in before the exam. This could be a synopsis, a case project or a paper, and it can be written individually or in a group.
- An oral exam that can be a defence of the written product, a broader examination in the curriculum or a combination of both. The oral exam can be held either individually or as a group exam.
- Can start out with you giving a presentation you have prepared in advance.
- Takes the form of a dialogue between you and the examiners.
- All of your curriculum can be included in the discussions.
- Listen and build on other students' perspectives.
- Show flexibility, adaptability and ability to cooperate.
- Learn how to work with different personalities and match expectations.
- Discuss and agree.

International degree-seeking students
The Study Board of each program at CBS hires an older student to guide students through different problems that might arise throughout the study. The Academic Counselor participates in Study Board meetings and, therefore, has knowledge about how the Study Board handles different situations that may be useful for you to know about. Since the Academic Counselor is a student himself, s/he will often be able to advise you, as s/he may know how other students have solved similar problems. The Academic Counselor is subject to professional discretion.
If you need further help with exam anxiety, study techniques, depression, etc., please contact the Student Counselling Service.
