Up to two compulsory assignments can be given. Approval of compulsory assignment(s) is a prerequisite for sitting the final examination. Approved compulsory activities are valid for two years.
The overall assessment will consist of a sub-test and a final examination based on a 30/70 relationship. There is mandatory attendance at the sub-test. Absence without satisfactory documentation will result in the final examination not being considered. When documenting valid absence, however, the final examination will count 100%. The duration of the sub-test is 1.75 hours, while the final examination will have a time frame of 3.5 hours. Both will be in writing. In case of any retake of the examination, both the sub-test and the final examination must be retaken. Such retake will only be held in the spring semester.
