Your exam will be held on 5th February (1ST DEADLINE) and 18th February (2ND DEADLINE). Deadline was changed so you can write over the weekend. Exam is conceptualized as a take-home exam in a form of an essay. 

You will receive two questions on Friday night, 8 PM ON TEAMS. Questions will be broad questions inspired by mandatory readings we uploaded on intranet and here on Microsoft Teams. You need to select one question and write an 2000 to 3000 word essay. 

You will upload essays into the EXAM folder in Microsoft Teams class account BY MONDAY MORNING - 8 AM.  

Examples of exam questions, these are mainly descriptive, but you also might get a problem question that will require a deeper engagement with the mandatory literature (UPLOADED ON TEAMS IN FILES) and a search for additional references. 

- What varieties of capitalism exist, how do they form historically and how could they change? (M. Grdešić) - What are the political consequences of economic inequality? (D. Širinić) - How are global differences in levels of prosperity explained from Acemoğlu and Robinson's institucionalist approach? (V. Raos)

How should the essay look like?

Essay is a half-step between in-class essay questions and a longer paper. We have higher expectations about the quality and the structure of the content compared to in-class exam because you can use your notes and course texts.

  • You should use a consistent referencing style and make sure you reference literature appropriately, you can use APA or other styles, your choice.
  • Essay should be clear with concise sentences, and with a clear structure so it is easier to mark.
    • INTRO: You should have a 1-2 sentence introduction with a preview of the main points (1, 2, 3..) or answer elements.
    • BODY: Introduction should be followed by main argumentation from the mandatory literature and ideally, from a different viewpoint. Try to find reviews of mandatory readings, additional research that supplements or criticises what we assigned. Are authors’ arguments similar or different? Is one of the theories more logical, more convincing? Can you group the authors/readings according to their stances or maybe according to the approaches they use?
    • CONCLUSION: At the end, as a conclusion try to make an argument, pick a side or suggest what is left to be explored by the literature (what is missing, what is vague, where is evidence weak and similar). 
    • List of references (you are encouraged to go beyond mandatory readings). 

How can you prepare?

Review course materials by looking over notes and readings, browse course themes and mandatory readings (read the intro and conclusions) so you are familiar with the topics. When you get the questions also thing broader, why does the professor think this is an important topic or how can this theme help us understand economic development and democracy? Use references from mandatory readings to expand sources. 

Good luck! Let us know if you have any additional questions.
