The exam includes a submission of a master's thesis within a set deadline. The deadline is set in connection with the approval of the supervision contract for the master thesis, but is normally June 1st and December 15th for submission in the spring and fall semester, respectively.
Grading scale: Letter grades A-E, F - Fail.
Re-submitting of the thesis: Only if a master's project is graded "F" (fail) may the project be resubmitted in revised form. A new deadline for submission will be stipulated. The deadline for resubmitting the project is 6 weeks from the point in time when the candidate was informed about the exam result. If the project receives a grade of "F" a second time the student can apply to the Department for the assignment of a new project.
Postponed submission: If a medical certificate is provided the student is given a postponed deadline for submitting the master's thesis according to regulations in section 21 in Regulations for examinations at the UiT. In the event that the project cannot be delivered by the stipulated deadline the student can apply for a postponement of up to 6 weeks where there are compelling grounds for the submission. The postponement of up to 6 weeks counts for both part-time and full-time students.
Non-submission of thesis: If a project is not submitted within the stipulated time limit and any application for postponement has not been granted the candidate will be reported as not being present ("ikke møtt") at the examination. The student can then apply to the Department for assignment of a new project.
