Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment: 3 written individual tests with no possibility of consulting written material. The final grade is the arithmetic mean of the 3 grades achieved. Approval is granted with a rating of 9.5 or higher.
Exams: Written test divided into 3 parts, corresponding to the three tests of continuous assessment. Approval is granted with a rating of 9.5 or higher.
