Evaluation system

The final grade is the weighted sum of the grades of the activities

  • Internships: 20%
  • Written tests: 45%
  • Exercise delivery: 15%
  • Challenges: 20%

The written test must have a minimum grade of 4. If the grade is less than 4 then the final grade will be that of the written test.

The written test can be retaken
