Evaluation systems and criteria

In person

The evaluation system follows the rules of the continuous evaluation, even if a great part of the final grade depends on the grade of the final exam that would take place at the end of the semester.

With regard to the continuous evaluation, we will take into account: Attendance and participation in class; attendance at continuous training sessions organized by the Faculty; the grade obtained in group activities; and the grade obtained in the writing midterm exam, which will not liberate content of the final exam.

More precisely, the final grade will be obtained as follows:

1. 70% of the final grade will depend on the final exam. MOREOVER, IN ORDER TO PASS THE SUBJECT THE STUDENT MUST OBTAIN AT LEAST A 5 (OVER 10) IN THE FINAL EXAM.

2. The remaining 30% of the final grade shall depend of the results of the continuous evaluation distributed as follows:

- 10%  Attendance and participation in class;

- 10% assignments and academic activities

- 10% Final Practical Case

The lack of attendance at the Continuing Education Conferences will be negatively evaluated in the subject. That is, depending on the number of conferences that have not been attended, the final grade resulting from the total evaluation of the subject will be lowered to a point.
For example: if a conference is missed, the grade will drop 0.4 points, if two conferences are missed, the grade will drop 0.7 points and if the three conferences are missed, the grade will drop 1 point. "
These regulations will not apply to Erasmus or exchange students, nor to students of the double degrees "

*In the second call July, given the exceptional circumstances in a State of Alarm context, will consist of an oral exam in which students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of the foundations of Community Law.
