Reading materials mentioned in this column can be taken along during the exam provided that they dont include handwritten notes.

The final mark for the course is based on the assignments and the examination according to the following format: Final mark = 0.4 * ((Mark Assignment 1 + Mark Assignment 2) / 2) + 0.6 * (Mark Exam) The mark of the exam should be a 5.5 or higher in order to be able to determine the final mark. If the mark of the exam is less than 5.5, a final mark can't be determined and a re-exam should be done.
