Learning verification modality
The exam includes the final oral test consisting of a discussion-interview on the topics discussed during the course and examined in depth through recommended texts. The test aims at assuring the level of knowledge and understanding, as well as synthesis, achieved by the student. Moreover, this interview will verify that the student is able to communicate, with method, propriety of language on the performance of the test itself and begins, as a rule, with a subject of the student's choice in order to put him at ease.
