Qualification system (Royal Decree 1125/2003, of 5 September) that establishes the European system of credits and the system of qualifications to the university degrees of official character and validity in all the state territory:

0 - 4,9: Suspended

5,0 - 6,9: Approved

7,0 - 8,9: Notable

9,0 - 10: Excellent


The course consists of two different parts: volleyball and hockey. The final grade is obtained by performing the arithmetic mean of the final grade of each part. To be able to average, each of the parties must be approved separately. Each part is approved with a 5 out of 10.

To pass the course it will be mandatory that the student has attended and actively participated in a minimum of 80% of the practical sessions of each of the parties (volleyball and hockey). In the event of an injury, the speaker will describe to the student the active face-to-face work to be done. 

Each student must justify the injury by providing a medical certificate. In no case will absences be justified.

Continued avaluation:

The continuous evaluation (participation, individual and group work) of each part (volleyball and hockey) will average with the exams only in the event that a grade equal to or higher than 5 points is obtained in both parts.

In accordance with current regulations, you can only opt for recovery if the subject has been suspended. If the rating is No presents, you will not be eligible for recovery. The only activity in the recovery period will be the exam equivalent to 50% of the final grade of the subject; the rest of the elements will remain with the mark obtained in the first assessment (a minimum of 5 must be achieved in both the exams and the continuous assessment).

The final grade of the student is the result of continuous assessment through the different assessment activities. The pass of the subject is obtained with a grade equal to or higher than 5 points (out of 10) according to the following weighting table:
