The main evaluation for this course is in May with the Global exam which includes all the work covered throughout the year, October to May. The student also has the possibility to sit an exam in January (the Continuous exam) which covers the study period October to January. If successful, the student sits an exam (the Continuous exam) in May, covering only the work from January to May. The students will not be allowed to sit the January or May exams if they do not have 80% attendance regardless of justifications. In this case they will do the Re-sit exam in May (Repesca).
If the student fails the Continuous exam in either January or May, he/she must sit the Global exam in May.
The ongoing record will:
- enable students to see their progress
- give a final mark which includes 40 % of tasks (homework + class work + class participation) and 60 % of exam evaluation (40 % written and 20 % oral). This evaluation system will apply to the January exam, May exam and May Re-sit exam.
The 40% of tasks will be included in all the evaluations: January exam, May exam, Global exam and Re-sits.
Those students considered exempt from classes have to sit the Global Exam in May with a possible re-sit.
The final mark includes 60 % of exam evaluation (40% written and 20% oral) and 40% of tasks (refer to the teacher)
