Examination Modalities

Grading: 

I will grade attendance and participation. There are 8 dates, of which at least 5 must be attended to receive a grade. In case of an unplanned absence (workshop/work/illness,...) it is maybe possible to make up the work with online files. Therefore, please always mail in advance if you know you can't come.

Comments

Registrations:

Most often there are more registrations than we have seats in the computer studio. Therefore, at the very beginning of the first session, I will call the present students in the order of their registration and assign the 14 available places. 

External students will be assigned after regular students. 

So please come on time if you want a place in the VU.

If you know earlier that you cannot attend the class, please sign out in the base!
