Additional information:

A compulsory placement test is held in the first week of the year. Repeaters are not exempted from the placement test, which will enable us to:

  • Select the students (with a mark of at least 10 out of 20) who will be exempted from the course and therefore from the June exam if so they wish. Their September grade will then be carried over and taken into account as their final grade.

  • The other students will have to take the course.
