In each course, students are assessed through examinations held at the end of the academic year during specific sessions and through continuous assessment tests called ‘prove in itinere’ held over the academic year, depending on the type of teaching. Examinations are held in three sessions throughout the academic year.

  • Examinations may be either written or oral, and assessment is expressed in thirtieths (30/30). The exam is considered passed if the mark is at least 18/30.
  • Continuous assessment tests are a mode of testing language modules only, they are conducted with evaluations expressed in thirtieths (30/30). Students who fail continuous assessment tests must take examinations during the specific sessions.
  • The Examining Board is composed of the subject teacher and at least another teacher of the same or related subject.
    Teachers of the same or related subject with proven cultural and professional competence may also be members of the Examining Board.
