Continuous Assessment (CC) :
CC1 = group grade on written work : production of a map of concepts (groups of 5-8 students)
CC2 = individual grade on written work (text synthesis). The grade is transformed in a bonus/malus (-2 to +2)

E1 = group grade on final oral presentation (20 minutes, groups of 5-8 students) from 1st exam period
no 2nd exam period except on jury decision

E2 = Final individual oral exam (delivering a speech in public) from 1st exam period
no 2nd exam period except on jury decision

N1 = Final mark from 1st exam period
N2 = Final mark from 2nd exam period

N1 = (CC1 + E1)/2 + CC2
N2 = N1
