Assessment and grading criteria
1. The exam consists of a written exam lasting three hours devided in to two parts (Electrical engineering and electronics 90minutes each): questions and exercises.
a. The two parts are separately graded and the exam result is the average of the two evaluations b. In case of failing of one of the two parts, the candidate must repeat only the failed part (in this case, the time available is 90 minutes) c. A grade of ZERO in any part implies the repetition of the entire exam d. During the written exam is allowed to use a calculator, but it is not allowed to consult notes or books (except for a limited furmulario of Electronics) e. It is possible to withdraw without prejudice of participation to the next exam session f. It is token under consideration only the last grading 2. after the written exam, the candidate can take vision of the graded written exam, and the student have the possibility to get a supplementary oral exam a. The written exam can be viewed but it must be returned b. The supplementary oral exam, up on the request of the student, can correct the result of the written exams improving/worsening the grade of the written exam. c. The oral exam is conducted jointly and covers both parts of the course d. It is possible to delegate another person to record the grade, as long as he presents the booklet e. The delegate is not, however, allowed to view the graded written exams f. Each grading not registered within one year becomes invalid and the student must repeat the whole exam.
