-a written test during the term (date to be announced on Moodle) (2/20)
-an oral expression task by means of a video during the term (3/20)
-a written examen during the exam session (10/20)

In case of resit, the results of the first session will no longer be valid. The evaluation will then consist only of a written test (15/20) and an oral test (5/20) during the session.
An unjustified absence for the written or oral examen implies an unjustified absence score for the entire course. A presence grace (signing off for a 0) for the written or oral exam implies a 0 score for the entire course. Students must pass all parts of the assessment (the oral exam and the two parts of the written exam - competences and knowledge) in order to get an overall pass.
