The groups must submit a report summarizing the work. The report must be a maximum of 25 pages. The groups have the opportunity for two sub-deliveries before the deadline, where they receive feedback on the delivered sub-results.

Re-take of the course can be carried out for individual partial assessments without all partial assessments having to be taken up again.

If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may change from written to oral.
