EXAMS

Assessment methods

The preparation of the student is assessed by a written examination which is scheduled on three different dates during the winter/summer session. Students can attend all the available dates, but they can ask for the correction of their work only on two of the three examination days.

In case of on-the-run tests, the overall mark is intended to replace the evaluation of the final test. The overall mark of the on-the-run tests must be registered within the first available date in the winter session.
