Requirements concerning written standards (Nynorsk/Bokmål):

Both exams and compulsory assignment for NORD1106 must be written in Nynorsk.


Compulsory assignments

One written assignment, ca. 1000 words. There will be written evaluation (passed/failed) of this assignment. The assignment serves as a draft for the term paper (exam part 1).

Approved obligatory assignment is valid only for the semester in which the approval is given.

Compulsory assignments

  • One approved written assignment

Further on evaluation

Term paper, ca. 1500 words. This counts as 40% of the final grade.

- Home exam, 4 hours. This counts as 60% of the final grade.

Each of the exams are graded separately, but only the final grade will be listed on official diplomas and transcripts of records from NTNU. In the final grade, the two exams count as stated above. Both exams must receive the grade E or better in order for the student to receive a passing grade. Students who have failed the term paper may appeal the grade and take the home exam, but in case the appeal is dismissed, the result on the home exam will be cancelled.

It will not be possible to hand in a term paper in semesters where NORD1106 is not taught. A resit examination of the home exam will be offered for students who passed the term paper. Students who fail must retake both exams. If a student resits a passed course, they must retake both exams.

Students may bring an Old Norse glossary (or dictionary) and an outline of Old Norse declinations to the exam.

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
