    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    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.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The assessment is based on:

    • exam results (80%)
    • projects (20%).

    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.
