- carry out a review of another essay at first-cycle level in statistics.
|The contents of the course are decided on the basis of on a problem that is chosen for each group. As a rule, the problem should be an application from outside of the university. The course is devoted to solving the chosen problem with the assistance of supplementary literature studies and writing of an essay. The essay should be defended at a public seminar with a critical review. The course also includes a review of another group's degree project (or the equivalent).|
|Apart from independent studies, the teaching consists of joint supervision and seminars. The thesis work should normally be carried out in a group of two individuals. In exceptional cases, the work may be carried out by one individual.|
|The course is examined through written and oral presentation of the completed work. The written presentation should be in the form of a report. The oral examination is done through presentation and defence of the own report and a review of another bachelor's essay (or the equivalent) at a public final review.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
