Absence exceeding the 20 % limit is not accepted, even if it's caused by circumstances the student is not responsible for. In special cases, like serious or long-term illness, the student can be given individual education by application to the department.

Further on evaluation

A written assignment on approx. 3500 - 4500 words counts as 1/3 of the final grade. A production assignment counts as 2/3 of the final grade. All components of the assessment must be passed. If you fail on one part of the examination you have to retake the part which you have failed in order to complete the course. You are not required to retake the part that you have passed. The final grade will be given when both parts of the examination are passed. If a new practical examination is to be given, the date and time for the examination will be set based on the resources of the Department.
