By the end of the term students will be required to sit a final exam. The maximum score in the final exam is 60 points. Oral exams take place only in exceptional cases, for example if the total score is inconclusive, or the final exam score is obviously inconsistent with in-semester performance of the student.

Final grades are calculated according to the following table, where 'points' stands for the total number of points, i.e. in-semester plus the final exam.

points | grade |
---|---|

0-50 | F (2.0) - FAILED |

51-60 | C (3.0) - SATISFACTORY |

61-70 | C+ (3.5) - FAIR |

71-80 | B (4.0) - GOOD |

81-90 | B+ (4.5) - VERY GOOD |

91-100 | A (5.0) - EXCELLENT |
