- a oral section where, apart from the ability to explain a specific topic, the ability to link different topics related to the course is tested. To pass this test you need to score at least 18 points out of 30.
The final mark is the score of the written test, increased or decreased depending on how you score at the oral test.

If the oral test is not passed, it is possible to repeat it.
