Evaluation methods

  • Continuous assessment Written work, Practical exercises / Evaluated reports

Course grade calculation method

The continuous assessment mark corresponds to the weighted average of all of the semester's exams. In case of a revision exam, the course's final mark corresponds to the arithmetic average of the continuous assessment and the revision exam marks.
