Qualificació

The system of Continuous Evaluation for this course is only possible for students with a minimum of 80% attendance before the January exam and the May exam, regardless of justifications.
The Final Continuous Evaluation in May consists of:
A) The January exam mark: 30% which covers the study period October to January (75% written and 25% oral)
B) The May exam mark: 50% which covers the study period February to May. (75% written and 25% oral)
PLUS
Evaluated exercises, tasks, tests and student participation: 20% from October to May.
The students who fail the Continuous Evaluation will be re-evaluated in the Continuous Global Re-sit Exam (Repesca), which covers all the work studied from October to May (20% oral exam, 60% written exam, 20% exercises, tests, tasks and student participation)

The Continuous Evaluation students who do not have 80% attendance will be evaluated in a Global Exam in May. This exam includes all the work covered from October to May. ( 20% oral exam, 60% written exam, 20% exercises, tests, tasks and student participation) Students who fail this exam will be re-evaluated in a Global Re-sit Exam (Repesca) under the same conditions.

The students who choose the Global Evaluation at the beginning of the course or are exempt from class must sit the Global Exam in May. This exam includes all the work covered from October to May. (No evaluation mark for exercises, tasks, tests or student participation is included) The Global Exam consists of a written exam (80%) and an oral exam (20%)
Due to the extent of the content to be examined, the duration of the Global Exam will be longer than that of the Continuous Evaluation Exam.

To qualify for the Global Evaluation system, it is necessary for the student to complete some pieces of work set by the teacher.

The students who fail the Global Exam will be re-evaluated in the Global Re-sit Exam (Repesca)
