Grading Method

   
By decision of the Faculty Council, in the academic year 2019/2020. the midterm exams are cancelled and the points assigned to that component are transferred to the final exam, unless the teachers have reassigned the points and the grading components differently. See the news for each course for information on knowledge rating.

Comment:

The requirement "Before final exam students must have completed all laboratory exercises" will not be enforced in the academic year 2019/2020.
