Examination methods: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE EXAMS OF THIS SUBJECT, for both attending and non-attending students (we recommend a CAREFUL reading):

a) The exam consists of an oral test that will assess the knowledge about the program: the test shall be satisfactory if it is evaluated with results equal to or greater than 18/30; if the test has failed, it should be done again in the following call or session.

b) There will be three EXAMINATION sessions for ALL students: summer, autumn and winter session.

c) The three sessions have two calls: with a distance between them 15 days. The student can choose between the first or second call or choose both of them in case the student has not passed the first call or wants to improve the mark: in the latter case, the previous examination result is automatically cancelled.

d) Exam registration via UniWeb is REQUIRED, RESPECTING the closing date of the registration lists: lists will be open a few weeks before exams. If the student decides to not take the exam, it is strongly requested to unsubscribe from the registered list.

e) The students, who intend to refuse the result of the exam, will have to express themselves using the appropriate online procedure within the terms of 7 days, starting from the publication of the examination. If the student does not express itself within this period, the exam will be registered.
