Qualificació

Plagiarism will make you to fail the presented work/exam with a mark of 0.

To pass the course, your mark in each exam must exceed 4 over 10 and you must obtain at least a 5 when adding all the marks.

- Students with a partial exam mark smaller than 4 over 10 must make some additional questions about the first 8 lessons in the final exam to achieve the minimum mark needed to pass the course.

- Students with a partial exam mark between 4 and 5 over 10 can do these additional questions if they want.

- In both cases, the maximum attainable mark for these additional questions will be 5 over 10.


Only students with a final mark (seminars + written report + partial exam + final exam) smaller than 5 over 10 may take a remedial exam, in which the maximum attainable mark will be a 5 over 10. Continuous assessment mark will not be added in this case.
