Examination Methods

Assessment

In case of failure in one of the two, it will be possible to sit for the exam (see b)) in June or July (only the Summer session) and take only the relative part of the exam.

b) a final written test including open questions, exercises and analyses. The test will last 2 hours and will be in English.
Students may sit for the exam, starting from the first summer session (June-July). The final mark is comprehensive of the CLA Certification and will be registered after completing the various parts in the exam.

Prerequisites:
English Language 1;
English C1 level (Computer-based test);
English Literature 1.


Final Remarks: students are recommended to check the course homepage regularly for an updated version of the program.
