Performance in courses is either by coursework, or by examination, or by a combination of coursework and examination as specified in the descriptions of individual courses. Coursework assessment is based on essays, term papers, projects, oral presentations, quizzes, and other kinds of oral or written work as prescribed by the course instructors. Assessment / examinations will normally be held at the end of the semester in which the courses are taken.
