2017Year of school 2Semester Since the entering freshmen Ph.D. qualification test(QE)
Summary
These rules below will apply for entering firstyear doctoral candidates starting from the second semester of the 2017 academic year.
* Existing rules are applied to matters not mentioned below.
Details on the QE Course
The QE consists of two kinds of examinations – general and advanced courses. Students must pass both examinations within four semesters of study.
▣ General QE Courses
Students must pass written examinations of the following two courses: Algebra and Analysis. The department shall write a syllabus for each course and announce it. If a student signed up for general QE and does not show up (except for unavoidable circumstances such as the student’s illness, death of a family member, etc.), the student will not be allowed to take any QE for one year.
The evaluation committee for each course deals with exam questions and grading.
○ Forming and Operating an Evaluation Committee
The Evaluation Committee consists of 3 members per course, and the members’ term is 3 years. One of the members changes each year and the Head Professor of the Department appoints the new member. The first committee members’ term is 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years.
The first Evaluation Committee since execution of the policy makes a syllabus of the QE.
○ QE Schedule
In principle, the QE is on the last Thursday and Friday of every January and July.
The Evaluation Committee decides the length of the exam ranging from 3 hours to 5 hours.
○ Grading and Pass/Fail
The student’s name must not be visible when grading.
In principle, the same person must grade the same questions.
An Evaluation Committee composed of the Head Professor of the Department, Chair of the Graduate Studies Committee, and Chair of Examinations Committee holistically decides pass/fail based on the results. (There is no pass/fail per course.)
▣ Advanced QE Courses
Each professor announces the major’s advanced QE’s range.
Students who passed general QE must choose their tentative academic advisor.
Tentative academic advisor establishes a committee composed of 3 professors and should be the Chair of the Committee. The tentative academic advisor develops the plan for advanced QE, submits it to the department, and notifies the student.
○ Grading and Pass/Fail
Students take exams for the courses designated by their advisor and take QE with all members of Advanced QE Committee present.
Advanced QE Committee decides the results (pass vs. fail) in 3 to 6 months after the approval by the department.
Management of Academic Records after Passing the QE
Once the student passed the QE, he/she will not be under any obligation to take exams. However, the Department of Mathematics will evaluate graduate students’ academic achievements once or twice a year in a faculty meeting and notify the results to students.
A student will receive a warning letter if his/her performance seems to be poor. If a student receives the warning letter twice, he/she will not be able to earn a doctoral degree from the Department of Mathematics at POSTECH.

The minimum criteria for passing the qualification examination shall be at least 60 out of 100 and shall be determined by the graduate school committee.
 Ph.D. Qualification Details
 The Ph.D. qualification exam consists of two levels (general course exam, higher course exam), and the student must successfully pass all two levels within four semesters of admission.

 QE General subject: You must pass the written test by selecting four of the eight subjects below.
AlgebraicⅠ, Algebraic Ⅱ, ventral analysis, theory of real variable functionⅠ, Differential Diversity and Lie, An Introduction to Algebra, Mathematical statistics, Numerical analysis
ο The test is conducted once every semester and you can take up to four.
ο You will be disqualified from QE for one year without cancellation after taking the exam, except in cases where you are absent without permission (such as your illness and family’s death).  QE (General Subject) Test
 ο Out of the eight general QE exams, you must pass all four courses within the four semesters after admission.
ο In order to prevent reckless QE applications, the department operates a token system and can apply to one token once Students who fail to pass a QE course at the time of admission are given nine tokens and eight tokens to other students.
(For example, if you take 2 subjects once, you can take only 6 subjects after that. If you retake the same course, you will get 2 subjects.)
ο The exam will be held every semester (January 1st semester, July 2nd semester: midJanuary of next year), and the entrance will be accepted by each subject, so there is no need to pass four subjects simultaneously.  QE advanced subject: An academic adviser and to select his first offer are just an exam, you can.
 Higher subject (QE) test
ο Submit the highlevel QE results report to the department office by the end of August in the first semester and the end of February in the second semester.Caution: 500 units of subject are not always available, so it is necessary for each student to design a course for the early stages of admission.
ο The scope of the higher subjects test shall be determined through a meeting with individual professors (future thesis guidance professors). Higher course test results are also confirmed after review by the graduate school committee.
ο If you complete at least 15 credits of mathematics and science in 500 units for two years after entering the school, the average score of 500 units is 3.5 or higher, and pass all four of the QE general subjects, you will be eligible for the test.  Management of Bachelor’s Degree after passing QE
ο After passing QE, there is no longer any obligation for the test, but for continued academic management, the mathematics department will conduct a graduate student’s scholastic performance assessment once or twice a year at a faculty meeting to inform each student of the evaluation results.
ο An official warning letter will be sent to students who are assessed to be insufficient. If you receive two warnings, you will not be able to obtain a Ph.D. in the mathematics department of this school because of the reason for disqualification in the review of dissertation of doctoral degree.
