Additional information:

Written reports plus written examination (test's interpretation).

The admission at the exam is retricted to students who have clotured their written reports.

The exam is required to validate the course, even if the grades for the two reports alone reach 10/20 for the total grade.

The course grade is a composite of the two reports and the exam grade. However, even in the case of an average grade greater than or equal to 10 for both reports, if the grade for one of them is less than 8, that report will have to be improved. A mark of 8 or 9 on one of the two reports can be compensated for by the other report and the examination.
