    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Students will be assessed with a written test with questions (about 45 in 60 minutes) with multiple answers (on average 4 alternatives). The student will always have to choose the best one among the suggested answers. There will be no penalty for incorrect answers or left blank. If the health situation does not allow the presence test, a remote live test will be prepared, and it will be possible that the modalities are modestly modified, for example, the time allowed may be shorter.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The student will undergo a multiple choice test of about 45 questions including all the topics covered in class. Each correct answer will be worth one point, No penalty for wrong answers or left blank. The score will then be proportionally converted to thirtieths. A score <18/30 is considered insufficient.
