Continuous Assessment (AV):

Class attendance: theoretical-practical classes with mandatory attendance, excluding those who miss more than 1/3 of the classes.
The evaluation has two components: theoretical (T) and theoretical-practical (T / P)
This, with a weight of 70% for the final classification, is carried out through a set of works carried out in class.
The theoretical component (T), with a weight of 30%, can be carried out in frequency or exam.

Those who have a rating lower than 9.5 in the T / P component are excluded and those with an average of the two components equal to or greater than 9.5 are exempt from examination.
