18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)

During the semester, a midterm test is taken. The end of semester signing is a minimum to provide a sufficient level of two semi-annual planning tasks and at least a satisfactory outcome of the midterm test. The exam pass is 20% a at home, 30% for homework and 50% for written examination, which students can, if necessary orally. The homeworks' submission and the midterm test can both be resubmitted once.

19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
The homeworks' submission and the midterm test can both be resubmitted once.
20. Learning materials
Students can download the subject notes in pdf format via Moodle.
