Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment:

The continuous assessment consists of three written tests. The first two are classified from 0 to 7 values and the third is classified from 0 to 6 values. The student is passed by frequency if he obtains a grade of 10 or more, resulting from the sum of the 3 tests.

Examination assessment:

Written test classified from 0 to 20 values. The student is approved if he obtains a classification higher or equal to 10 values.
