Evaluation (text)

The assessment for AML (both modules) is entirely based on continuous assessment (25% per continuous assessment moment). Participation in the four permanent evaluation moments per module is necessary to pass the entire course unit.

The remedial lessons are also subject to continuous evaluation. These evaluations are dropped for those who were exempted from these classes at the beginning of the academic year.

Students must obtain 50% of the marks or a mark of min. 10/20 on each module (both Intonation and Rhythmics) to pass the total course unit AML. In case of failure in one of the modules, the lowest partial mark becomes the mark for the entire course unit and the student is referred to the second examination opportunity for at least this module.

The student passes when he/she can realise the imposed programme with attention to metre, rhythm and intonation, demonstrating musicality.
