    Grading Regulations:

    • Two tests for 30 points each. There is no possibility to retake the tests.
    • If someone did not write the first test (for justified reasons), then the second test is graded for 60 points.
    • The grade on the basis of the average of the written tests by the conversion table:
      < 162
      from 163
      from 193.5
      from 224
      from 254.5
      from 285
    • Sending on time good solutions of all homeworks increases the grade from the classes by half a degree.
    • The grade 5 from the classes increases exam grade by one degree. Grades 4 and 4.5 increase exam grade by half a degree.
    • Cheating on tests and exams will not be tolerated. If a student get caught cheating, the test/exam will be confiscated and rated to zero points.
