- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
Attendance at Laboratory Practicals is obligatory. Depending upon individual diligence in the laboratory (behaviour, interest shown, laboratory record book), students will receive a grading as pass/failed, on completion of the programme of practicals. Only those students with a pass grade in the laboratory programme can successfully complete the course. Students without a pass grade in the laboratory practicals have to undertake a special written examination about the laboratory practical classes, which will take place at the same time as the final examination within the official calendar in February/September/December.
The examination papers will be marked out of a total of 10 points, of which 8 correspond to theory questions and problem-solving, and 2 for questions relating to laboratory practical classes.
The course will be successfully completed after a total mark equal to or higher than 5 is achieved and a pass grade has been given in the laboratory programme. Students who do not have a pass grade in the laboratory practicals, also have to undertake a special written examination about the laboratory practical classes; if they fail, they suspend the subject with the note that they have obtained in this examination.
