Exam(s) in session

Any session

- In-person

written exam ( multiple-choice questionnaire, open-ended questions )

Additional information:

A written exam consists of a first part with closed questions (true-false; out of 20 points) and a second part with open questions (out of 20 points). The first part assesses the student's knowledge of the course, while the second part assesses the student's understanding of the subject and their ability to reconstruct it. Students must therefore obtain a mark of at least 10/20 in each part.

If the student fails the first part, the second part is not corrected and a score of 0/20 is awarded for the second part. The overall score obtained is the average of the score for the first part and the score of 0/20. The answers required for the second part (QO) will be explained to the students present at the session at which the papers are examined;

If the student passes the first part and fails the second, only the grade for the second part (out of 20) is recorded. The grade for the first part is therefore not taken into account when calculating the overall grade.

If both parts are passed, the overall score is calculated by averaging the two scores.


Consultation of exam papers: a group session will be organised upon registration (during the 15 days following the announcement of the results). Details will be posted on e-campus
