Further on evaluation

Portfolio evaluation is the basis for the final grade in the subject. Parts of the portfolio are final exam in writing 80%, work (exercise, laboratory, project) 20% which has to be accepted to be allowed access to the exam. The result for each part is given in percentage units, while evaluation of the entire portfolio (the final grade) is given as a letter.
If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may change from written to oral.
In the case that the student receives an F/Fail as a final grade after both ordinary and re-sit exam, then the student must retake the course in its entirety. Submitted work that counts towards the final grade will also have to be retaken
