Exams in the BA 2013 plan d'études

Students sit two Faculty exams linked to third-year modules (one thirty-minute oral and one 4-
hour written paper).

Students are examined on the contents of:

a) a third-year seminar

b) a personal bibliography consisting of relevant texts linked to a) (as a general guideline, about 8
extra items, to be discussed with the teacher), but prepared independently.

It is the responsibility of the student to submit the personal bibliography for the examiner’s
approval before the end of Week 13 preceding the exam period.

Considering first a passage from the primary literature read in class or a set of linguistic data
connected to the seminar and selected by the examiner, students provide an initial
analysis/interpretation that is based on a question specified by the examiner. Examinees are
expected to base their analysis on the course material and the personal bibliography. The
examiner may then ask follow-up questions about the analysis or about further pertinent issues
related to a) and b).

Students are examined on the contents of:

a) a third-year seminar

b) a personal bibliography consisting of relevant texts linked to a) (as a general guideline, about 8
extra items, to be discussed with the teacher), but prepared independently.

It is the responsibility of the student to submit the personal bibliography for the examiner’s
approval before the end of Week 13 preceding the exam period.

Students write an essay based on one question (out of a choice of three) addressing both the
course material and the personal bibliography.
