Type of evaluation

The exam consists of a written test and an oral confirmation interview. The written test focuses on carrying out exercises of a similar type to those seen in class. The oral exam is used to verify the knowledge of the bases of mathematical reasoning as well as of the definitions used in carrying out the exercises.
