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.
Tests 1, 2, 3 and 4 are all of them reduced versions of the Cambridge exams and related to the units worked in class. The January and June exams are complete versions of the Cambridge exams.
Speaking tests are in pairs or in threes depending on the group and number of students. They are the four parts of the Cambridge speaking exam.
All tests and exams are corrected according to the Cambridge exams scale.

Continuous assessment:
Unit Value
Test 1 14%

Observacions

Students are advised against plagiarism. Any detected and proved case of plagiarism will automatically be marked as a “0” (zero).

Students following the continuous assessment can miss 3 TESTS or any evaluation task with no need of justification, except January and May/June/July exams where only a medical or work justification will be needed and accepted. Under no circumstances can any of the speaking tests and tests be taken on a different date; however, this will not affect students’ mark. At the beginning of the course students will be provided with some further guidelines on the subject. SOME TESTS MAY OCCUR ON THE SAME DAY; THEREFORE, THEY STILL COUNT AS TWO SEPARATE JUSTIFICATIONS.

STUDENTS MISSING MORE THAN THE 50% OF THE DIFFERENT ASSESSMENT TASKS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CLASSIFIED AS FINAL EVALUATION STUDENTS.

Students leaving for Erasmus or international programmes (Taiwan) can follow the continuous assessment if they come back by the calendar date of the January/February exam where they will take an exam counting the 50% of their final mark.

IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE AS CANDIDATES FOR THE OFFICIAL CAMBRIDGE EXAM, STUDENTS NEED TO ACHIEVE A MINIMUM MARK OF 60% IN THE MAY/JUNE EXAM.
