Level of study:
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
During Semester students will write 2 tests. The sum of points for the test is 20 pionts. To pass the tests should be obtained in the sum at least 10 points. Exam, consisting of written and oral part is rated a maximum of 30 points. On successful completion of the exam should be obtained at least 18 points. Students will get credits for the subject if they successfully complete the written tests and exam. Evaluation is done as follows: A 46-50 points B 41-45 points C 37-40 points 32-36 points D, E 31-28 points.
