18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
During the semester necessary the active participation at the class (attitude), and during the semester there is two midterm tests for evaluating the knowledge, the ability, the autonomy and the attitude. The attitude and the autonomy mean 15-15 % and the knowledge and the ability mean 35-35 % in the final classification.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
Possibility to refit the midterm tests.
