Art. 5

The evaluation of the final degree exam will take into account the quality of the written work; if the supervisor and assistant supervisor deem necessary they can request an oral discussion of the written work.

The mark for the final degree exam will come from the average. Possible bonus points can be attributed according to the procedure established by the University.

For part-time students, the same bonus can be applied as to full time students, considering the duration over 6 years instead of over 3 years.

The honour can be attributed, at the discretion of the supervising scholar, to students if the sum of their average exam scores (expressed in a mark out of 100), the possible bonus, and the maximum vote for the final degree programme (6), is equal or superior to 110.
