All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam consists of two parts: written and oral. The written part consists of problem-solving activity. The oral part consists of questions regarding theoretical aspects. The written exam is a prerequisite to participate in the oral exam. If the student doesn't pass the written part, the student cannot take the oral part.
The assessment is based on:
Projects are evaluated from 0 to max 6 points.
The exam (written + oral) is evaluated from 18 to max 27 points.
The final mark is the sum of the exam results and the project results.
The maximum score available is 30 points cum laude.
