EXAMS

Exam description

Written exam and oral exam.

Assessment methods

The written exam consists in the resolution of four exercises regarding four different topics of the course.
The oral exam focuses mainly on the theory (i.e., definitions, theorems and proofs), but in some cases you will be asked to solve an exercise of a type already studied and solved during the lessons. The oral examination is restricted to students who have previously passed the written test.
