The graduation exam consists of two components:
- Written test consisting of 30 multiple choice questions and a problem required detailed presentation of the solution (including algorithm description and small pieces of code implemented in programming language). The test contains 10 questions from each of the following core topics: Discrete Structures and Algorithms; Programming Languages and Software Engineering; Computing Systems and Databases
- Oral presentation of the BSc Thesis
For each component of the exam the student receives a mark between 0 and 10. The graduation exam final mark is computed as average of the two marks.
