Examination Regulations, Assessment and GradingContinuous assessment (50%) - assessment exercises throughout the semester
Summative assessment (50% - final and mandatory) - at the end of each semester
As a rule, continuous assessment is the preferential regime to assess our students’ knowledge which requires 75% attendance and completion of two assessment tests. Other elements such as class participation, homework and tasks performed throughout the course, are also taken into account for evaluation. At the end of each level, students can request the corresponding certificate, if the course has been successfully completed.
