The student must complete four exercises, with a value of 5 points with respect to the final grade.

The mark of these exercises (5 points (maximum mark) with respect to the final mark of the subject) will be added to the average obtained from the individual theoretical tests, provided that they have been passed under the conditions specified in the following section *.

 

2. Individual theory tests

Written exam: written tests that allow assessing the knowledge acquired by the student.

The student must pass two written multiple choice tests. The value of the same is 2.5 each, with respect to the final grade of the subject. Being the total value of 5 points out of 10.

* The student who obtains a 2 out of 5 of the set of theoretical tests may add the mark obtained from the practical part.

 

Make-up exam.

This exam will consist of an evaluation test in which the set of contents of the subject will be reassessed. The grade obtained in this exam will be the grade of the subject that will consist of a maximum of 5, regardless of the grade obtained in the exam.

 

Plagiarism

Without prejudice to other disciplinary measures deemed appropriate, in accordance with current academic regulations, irregularities committed by a student that may lead to a variation of the grade will be graded with a zero (0).
