Course completion requirements -

Evaluation of student knowledge is via a single exam after the course ends. During this exam, several of the questions listed in the document with sample questions for the course will be asked. The grade is the average of the performance on the individual questions. Successful completion of the practicals depends on handing in several assignments during the course of the semester in a timely fashion.
