The exam is only written and it is the same for attending and non-attending students. The contents refer to the textbook and the material made available on the course website (teaching notes, lectures and slides), in addition to the evidence from the guest speakers, which is an integral part of the course. There is only one final written exam at the end of the course and no partial exams in the middle and at the end of the course.

Student X will have to compulsory answer to all subquestions A.1, A.2, A.3; B.1, B.2, B3; C.1, C.2, C3. While student Y will have to answer to all subquestions A.1, A.2, A.3; C.1, C.2, C.3 and D.1, D2, D3. Time for the exam is 120 minutes.

For students who have participated in the group work (max 3 members), the oral exam grade may be increased (up to two points). There will be no questions about the seminars, as was promised in class, given the change of examination methods and given the difficulty of having an adequate number of speakers.
