EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of a written test and an oral test.
Students enrolled in the course of study in Physics are not required to study the proofs of "the 6 theorems" described in the file published on Aulaweb.

Students with a certified DSA, disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the lecturer at the beginning of the course in order to agree on teaching and examination methods that, while respecting the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning methods and provide suitable compensatory tools.

 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

1. Two intermediate written tests  will be provided during the year. If a student obtains an average mark greater than or equal to 18/30 and if he scores at least 15/30 in both, the average of the two marks counts as a written test. 

2. A written test with a score greater than or equal to 15/30 allows access to the oral test.

3. If a student submits a written test, the intermediate written tests will be considered canceled.

Oral tests. During the oral exam, the commission asks questions about the entire program. In particular, the knowledge of the definitions of the main concepts, and of the statements and proofs of the most important results will be evaluated, and the ability to carry out exercises will be verified.
