In case of global failure, the failed part(s) will be retaken.
If the EU is not validated at the end of a year, all the fields (legal, economic, scientific and technical) must be presented the following year.
A mark of 0/20 in one of the parts will, regardless of the overall result, mean that part will have to be retaken.
