The system of evaluation in practice at UPF is ruled by the General Academic Regiment, as follows:
Once the student is enrolled, it is mandatory in all academic activities/lessons. The student must attend, at least, 75% of the activities/lessons.
There are 2 kinds of disciplines offered by UPF:
1 discipline of 4 credits = 60 hours
1 discipline of 2 credits = 30 hours
Assessment comprises written, oral and practice tests/examinations, projects and other academic activities required in each disciplines. These modes of assessment may happen during the semester.
The final assessment of a discipline is expressed through numeric grades, on a scale from 0 to 10.
4. Approval system
The student who achieves a score of, at least, 7.0 and has 75% of attendance in a discipline is considered approved at the end of each semester. The final test is compulsory for the student, with 75% of attendance, whose score is, at least, 3.0. The minimum score to be approved in this situation is 5.0.
FINAL SCORE = 7.0 (passed )
FINAL SCORE = 3.0 (Compulsory final exam )
Compulsory final exam = 5.0 (passed)
