THE FINAL EXAM IS ORAL AND INVOLVES THE READING, TRANSLATION AND LINGUISTIC AND LITERARY COMMENTARY OF ONE OR MORE PASSAGES ANALYSED IN CLASS AND CHOSEN BY THE TEACHER. THE STARTING POINT IS THE TEXTUAL AND LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS OF A PASSAGE AND THEN A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF OTHER TEXTS, LITERARY GENRES AND CONTEMPORARY LINGUISTIC EXPRESSIONS.
IN ASSESSING BOTH THE WRITTEN AND ORAL EXAMS, THE FOLLOWING WILL BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT
-KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT MATTER
-ABILITY TO SUMMARISE AND EXPLAIN CLEARLY
