In the last paragraph of the Assessment section, the correct information is as follows: The subject includes the option of a single assessment on 11 June 2024. If you wish to take this option, you must make a reasoned request to the Faculty within the established deadlines. It is necessary to inform the teaching staff of the course at the beginning of the course. It will consist of an exam (written test) of the block of contents (50% of the mark), the delivery of the individual practical work (35% of the mark) and its oral presentation (15% of the mark) will take place on the same day as the delivery of the practical work. The rest of the considerations are similar to those of the continuous assessment.
