If possible, the final test will take place in person on the 10 December 2020 and 17 December 2020, as there will be two groups. This is because the computer room's maximum student capacity has been reduced due to the pandemic.

The final test will take place online only if it's not possible to complete the exam in person at the university due to the pandemic. The students will be informed about this in due time.
