What if I don't get a certificate even if I have completed the course?

If you haven't received the certificate yet, there are a couple of possible explanations:

For getting the certificate, you need to complete at least 90% of the exercises and get 50% of the exercises right.

Check also that you have given enough peer feedback on each of the peer evaluated exercises (Exercises 4, 15, 23, 24, 25) -- this is the most common reason for not getting the certificate -

After that, it will take a while before your answers receive enough reviews from other students - When your exercises have received enough peer feedback, it may turn out that some of your answers may have been reported as spam (or getting very low scores), in which case we'll check them manually.

On peer reviews:

The free text answers that are peer reviewed will take some time to be processed because we need a sufficient number of reviews. Furthermore, we will manually verify any answers that get lower than average scores, which will take even more time. This is why some of you will have to wait for the grading and the certificates for an extended period of time.

If you still have questions about the certificates, please check out this post in our Spectrum community. Only if you can't find the answer there, you should contact us by sending a private message on Spectrum or by email to [email protected] .

To ensure quality, issuing certificates involves manual work and it takes time. We are working on streamlining the process, so please bear with us! 🙏❤️

Congratulations to all who passed already and all who will do so in the future!
