For first year students, we provide two exam weeks before Christmas, two weeks before the Easter holidays and exam three weeks before the summer holidays. This allows us to release the ball. Students are informed of the results. These are discussed individually and depending on the result achieved, the teachers them an appropriate remediation proposals.
