Other comments on the Evaluation
<p>At the end of the first quarter, once the mid-term exams and the final exams have been done, the student will have a grade out of 10 points in Algebra (A) and a grade out of 10 points in Statistics (S). The final qualification of the subject will be calculated as follows:</p><p>- If both grades, A and S, are greater or equal to 3.5, then the final grade will be (A+S)/2.</p><p>- Any of the grades A or S is less than 3.5, then the final qualification will be the minimum of the quantities (A+S)/2 and 4.5.</p><p>The students who are exempted by the School from taking the mid-term exams will be evaluated through a final exam of Algebra (100% of the grade of this part) and a final exam of Statistics (100% of the grade of this part). The final grade will be calculated according to procedure described above.</p><p>A student will be assigned to NP (&quot;absent&quot;) if he/she is absent in both final exams (i.e. Algebra and Statistics); otherwise he/she will be graded according the the procedure described above.</p><p>The assessment in the second call (June/July) will be done by means of a final exam of Algebra and a final exam of Statistics (100% of the grade of each part).&nbsp;The final grade will be calculated according to procedure described above.</p><p>If at the end of the first quarter a student obtains a grade equal to or greater than 5 out of 10 in any of the parts of the subject (Algebra or Statistics) then he/she will keep this grade in the second call (June/July) without retaking the corresponding exam.</p><div><p><b>Ethical commitment: </b>Students are expected to commit&nbsp;themselves to an adequate and ethical behaviour.
