18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
During the semester there is necessary to solve some simulational subtasks (for the evaluation of the knowledge, ability, attitude and autonomy)(2 pieces). The final evaluation of the knowledge and ability will be at in the framework of an examiantion, at the end of the semester. The criterion of signature is the complete solving of all tasks of the semester.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
Possibility to refit the homeworks, to repeat the examination, properly to the Study and Exam Regulations.
