20.    Forms of assessment During the semester, two partial exams are foreseen (at the middle and at the end of the semester). During the semester, students can undertake to prepare seminar papers on their own. For students who have passed the partial exams, a final oral exam can be conducted. The final grade includes the points from the partial exams, the points from the seminar papers and the final oral exam.
Students who take one written exam instead of two partial exams can take it in the scheduled exam sessions. For students who have passed the written exam, a final oral exam can be conducted. The final grade includes the points from the written exam, the points from the seminar papers and the final oral exam.
The use of books, scripts, manuscripts or notes of any kind is not allowed during the exam. The use of a calculator is allowed
