(16 June 2018)   In view of the strike I was asked the following, by some of the students having to complete the first year exams before going abroad for double degrees ,or erasmus periods from September 2018.
 “Would it be possibile to have an additional, even informal, exam session replacing the exam of June 29th, before July 10th ? If possible, the grade would be officially inserted in the system on July 20th”
After having considered the situation my answer is YES. What follows are the indications for this additional possibility:
i)  there will be an additionl test, on Wednesday June 27 h 10 Room n°8,
ONLY for those students having to go abroad and who need to complete the first year exams before July.
ii) Being an unofficial test, you will not book on the system
iii) students intending to take the test on June 27th will have to contact me on the email at “” to tell me so.
For any clarification write me at the above address.
(18 June 2018) Below are the grades after the second mid term. The grade takes into consideration first and second midterm.
As said in class, on June 29th, same time and same room as the original exam session, students can visualise the second mid term. On that occasion students will formally accept the grade obtained in the written tests, take also an oral part (non mandatory) or refuse the grade and retake the exam.
If you can not come you can delegate somebody else. The delegate will bring a piece of paper with your signed declaration (accept, refuse). The delegate will have to be identifiable and bring her(his) own identity document.
