After obtaining approval in a subject, students can make a grade increase or a grade improvement, by taking the Final Exam and enrolling within the defined deadline and communicated in a timely manner.
Grade increase: Free enrollment for the Final Exam to be held in the same semester in which the subject was approved. It may be mandatory or not to deliver the exam, your final grade can be the highest grade or the improved grade (even if it is lower) or may also be an average between the grade of continuous assessment and the final exam grade. Therefore, we recommend you talk with the respective teacher before enrollment.
Grade improvement: Enrollment in the Final Exam with associated monetary cost, which can be done up to two semesters after the student has obtained approval to the subject. In this modality, the student does not risk the grade, so the final grade will be the highest grade between the grade of continuous assessment and the grade obtained in the final exam. The student will be reimbursed by 50% of the amount he paid to enroll in the exam if the grade obtained is equal to or greater than 15 and if there is an effective increase. We always advise you to consult Student Affairs to ask for exam registration deadlines and other details that may change from semester to semester. If a student intends to improve his / her grade after two semesters have passed, it is possible to request an application from the Degree Director, Professor Rita Vale.
