Qualificació

Students may opt to follow a final assessment (one final exam) or a continuous assessment
system (work and tests at specified times during the academic year). If the final result of the
Continuous Assessment is below 5 (the passing mark) students will take the final annual
exam (listening, reading, written & oral) in the official calendar date of “convocatòria
extraordinària” established by the University (June or July). Students coursing two or more
simultaneous subjects may have difficulties to opt for the continuous assessment of the
subjects in question.
Seminars are any task (writings, case study, etc.) related to the contents of the different
units along the course and there are four. Skills tests, four also, are readings and listenings
related to Cambridge material. All of them announced previously in class.
Tests 1, 2, 3 and 4 are all of them about the grammar and vocabulary of the units worked in
class. The January and June exams are writings on the articles provided in each unit whose
links are always to be found on Moodle.
Skills tests and tests are independent tasks that will take place on the same day and will be
evaluated independently according to the percentages stated in this programme.
Oral presentation 1 will be about a comparison between customer and product-based
companies and presentation 2 will be done in conjunction with the subject “Màrqueting
Internacional” .
By the 5th April 2018 at the latest, students with the intention of following the final
assessment must sign a document accepting its conditions. The student not signing the

document with the conditions of their choice. Under no circumstances will the document be
