Examination Arrangements : Students are required to pass two written tests: a mid- and an end-term test. Grades will be awarded after having discussed those tests in individual meetings. Registrations for the tests are required. Mid- and end term tests contain about 6 questions each, of which the candidates are required to answer 5 of each test.
In order to complete that course successfully students are required to pass both tests (mid- and end term test).
