For a student who did not attend the knowledge tests during the semester or did not achieve a passing result (at least 51% of the points provided for the knowledge test), as the first part of the final exam will be organized a knowledge test that he did not attend or did not pass. If a student has more than 3 absences he must re-enroll the subject.
Specific remarks
The condition for taking the final exam is that the annual task has been done and defended.
