Intermediate grade 1
Cumulative grade-1 = 50% colloquium-1 + 50% homework
Intermediate grade (module 2) = 60% cumulative grade-1 + 40% intermediate exam (module 2)
Intermediate grade 2
Cumulative grade = (3/14) colloquium-1 + (3/14)colloquium-2 + (3/14) intermediate exam + (15/42) homework
Intermediate grade = 70% cumulative grade + 30% final exam
Grade “homework assignments” is an average grade of all the homework assignments in the course.
Intermediate grade 2 is the final grade for the course included in a diploma supplement.
Rounding of the cumulative grade, intermediate and final grades must be performed according to the following rules. Rounding down for marks between 1 and 5, rounding by the rules of arithmetic for marks between 5 and 6, and rounding up for all the other marks.
There is no possibility to get an extra point to compensate the low cumulative grade.
