Eligibility for exams

Admission criteria set according to Article 4 of General Evaluation Rules of FEUP.

Calculation formula of final grade

The final mark (CF) will be obtained by the following formula:
   CF = 0.30 AD + 0.70 EF

AD - Quizzes:
   AD = 2/3 FA + 1/3 TG

AD - Quizzes:
- 6 quizzes (pratical classes);
- the quizzes mark (AD) is obtained by the average of the best 4 marks achieved by each student.

TG - Teamwork assignment:
Small teamwork assigment based on an online competition.

EF - Final Exam
- written exam.

To pass this course, apart from a final grade no less than 10, is required a minimum grade of 7 in the final exam.

Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)

Special evaluations will be made by a written exam.

Classification improvement

Students may choose between:

- improving simultaneously components Quizzes (FA) and Final Exam (EF);

- improving only component Final Exam (FE).

Component teamwork assignments (TG) is not possible to improve.
