Passing the language course

Regular attendance in the Language Center language courses is required to pass the "Classroom Participation" part of the exam. If participants miss more than 3 classes per semester (including absence due to illness), they will be awarded a "fail" grade (grade: 0) for "Classroom Participation".

Both the "Classroom Participation" and the "written exam" must be passed with a minimum grade of 50% (grade: 4.0).
