2) Written test containing 3 theoretical tasks/questions (upon successful completion of mid-term requirements). Total Score is 2 x 20 points and 1 x 10 points at the maximum (i.e. 50 points). Oral exam follows, but is not necessary in the case of excellent written exam. See AIS for the list of questions (tasks). Minimum of 60 % is required to pass the test and achieve final grade.

Final Grade is computed based on the following formula: Two midterm tests (maximum of 2 x 32 points = 64 points) + Final Exam (maximum of 36 points) = maximum of 100 points. The grading scale is as follows:
90 - 100 points = 1
75 - 89 points = 2
