Lab assignments are to be completed at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. Valid absence due to illness or other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to teaching staff. In cases of valid absence, it may be possible to complete the lab assignments at other times, where agreed with the teaching staff. This is not an entitlement. In order to access the final exam, students are required to pass the mandatory lab. All mandatory requirements must be completed 3 weeks before the final exam.No resit is offered for the laboratory assignmnets. If a student wishes to redo the lab, this can be done next time the subject is taught.
