There is will be one written test during the semester. The final examination consists of a written part and a following oral part.

The final classification is taken as the average of both parts. The oral part will take place only after passing successfully the written part.

Due to the epidemic situation, the course in the winter semester of the 2020/2021 academic year will be held online either through

Google Meet or through Microsoft Teams. The exact communication method will be announced beforehand to all course participants

via emails that will be sent from SIS (Study Information System).
