A) Continued evaluation of exercises delivered in due time.
B) Exam at the end of the classes.
The final mark results from the average of both marks (50% each). It is necessary to obtain more than 4 (over 10) in each category (A and B) to perform the average.
If more than 20% of the practical works of category A activities is not delivered in due time, the student will not be evaluated.
