Evaluation methods
Botanical part: written examination Animal biology part:
Continuous assessment (online quiz, group work, certification test in audiancy, reports of practical work).
In case of success of all parties (score equal to or greater than 10/20 for each part, passing certification tests in audience, if one of the notes (online quiz, group work, practical work BUT NOT THE CERTIFIED TESTS IN AUDIENCE) is less than 10, an average score of 15/20 makes up for this weakness), the student is exempted from the final exam.
In the case of a final exam, the mark is the average of the mark of the other activities and of the exam.
