Systematic student observation, Test

The attendance is voluntary. The student is not obliged to purchase the textbook used in the lessons. To pass the final test at least 65 % must be achieved (dates subject to agreement, 1 resit). A translation related to the language taught will be part of the test. The student shall prepare a ppt presentation on an agreed topic (approximately 10 min) with an oral commentary (not to be read). The presentation will also involve a discussion with other students and the lecturer and must be presented by the beginning of the credit week (alternative dates only upon agreement). Other options of passing the course are defined in Vice-Dean's Announcement No. 1/2016. In case the student decides to use the option to replace the final test with the QPT at the British Centre (or the entire subject with the PET certificate and higher), he /she shall inform the lecturer about it no later than on the day of the scheduled final test. (Please note: The Quick Placement Test is only valid for the relevant academic year and must be taken during the academic year in question).
