Assessment comments  
Final qualification is given by the equation: Mark = 0.1* Practices + 0.1*Asistence + 0.3*E1 + 0.5*E2 Final qualification for students with academic exemption: Mark = 0.1* Practices + 0.3375*E1 + 0.5625*E2 where: E2 is the score of the first Objective test Criteria for the Rubric will be used to
The criteria for the second oportunity (exam in June/July) are the same as in the other objective tests.
