    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    The exam consists in a written examination (problem solving), compulsory for all the students.

    If the written exam mark is <13/30, the student will have to repeat the exam, but not before 28 days.  The written exam is followed by an oral examination, optional for students who obtained a mark ≥ 18/30 in the written test. The oral examination is compulsory for students who got a mark lower than 18/30.

    Depending on the sanitary emergency conditions, the exam could be carried out online.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The written exam consists in problem solving: students are allowed to use notes downloaded from Aulaweb. The oral exam focuses on the discussion of the written exam and on the program content. Correction of the written test, together with the oral exam, allows the teachers to judge the achievement of the learning outcomes. When these goals are not achieved, the student is invited to deepen the study and to exploit further explanations by the teacher.
