Continuous assessment is considered along the semester based on the following activities:

Learning outcome Assessment activity Weight (%) Resit assessment It allows test resit
O1, O2 Midterm exam A on lessons 1 and 2  15 Yes (final exam) none
O3, O4 Midterm exam B on lessons 3 and 4  15 Yes (final exam)  none
O1, O2, O3, O4, O5 Exam C on lessons 1,2,3,4 and 5  70  Yes (final exam) 3/10

In order to pass the subject, the following conditions must be fulfilled:

  • the mean of exams A, B and C is more than 5.
  • the mark of the final first exam (exam C) covering the whole course (to be scheduled during the resit assessment period) is not less than 3.

Otherwise, the mark of the final second exam should be more than 5.
