Assessment methods
Colloquium will be in the form of a written test (for ordinary and the first resit term), oral (for the second resit term). The minimum success rate in the test must be at least 60%. The condition for access to the colloquium is participation in classes (only absences due to relevant health or study reasons are allowed).
