Exercise Credit: The condition for granting the credit is successful completion of a test consisting of five examples of topics that were practiced in the exercise. A complete solution of at least three examples is considered to be mastering the test.

Exam: The exam consists of an oral part, the student draws a set of three questions from the topics presented at the lecture. The topics correspond to the syllabus of the lecture. The final grade is determined as the average evaluation of individual questions.
