exceptional students. It implies the gratuity of a subject for the following
Even though the official connection is of one Full Marks for every 20
students, the UAM is different. In the best of cases, and depending on the area,
the connection is around a 2% (data from the UAM Calculus Center). It is not unusual
to find years where that grade is not given.
- 9. This mark is given to very good students, who have
fully answered to the course demands.
- 7 to 8 .This mark is given to good students who have
answered with a good level to the course demands.
- 5 to 6. This grade indicates that the student has responded well enough
to the course demands.
- 0 to 4. This mark implies that the student has not passed the course demands
and must do it again.
N.P., not sit
- The student who has or has not regularly gone to class, but has not
sit the exam or has not done the evaluation test established by the professor
has not passed the course, and therefore does not obtain the corresponding credits.
