Course completion:
During the semester:
Completion of the two component (midterm) tests in MS Excel is necessary. Sample numerical cases are downloadable from AIS. The Total Score is 30 points maximum for each test (i.e. 2 x 30 points). A minimum of 50% (i.e. 30 points) is necessary to fulfill this part of the overall evaluation.

Final Exam:
Written test containing theoretical tasks (questions). Total Score is 40 points. Oral exam follows, but is not necessary in the case of excellent written exam. See AIS for the list of questions (tasks).

Final Grade is computed based on the following formula: Two midterm tests (maximum of 60 points) + Final Exam (maximum of 40 points) = maximum of 100 points. The grading scale is as follows:
90 - 100 points = 1
75 - 89 points = 2
60 - 74 points = 3
59 and less = fail
