Absence beyond that can be compensated by supplementing assignment(s) if the instructor finds it possible. In case of an absence of 50% or more, the course is considered as interrupted, even if assignments have been completed.

If there are special reasons, such a re-examination can also take place later. Normally, teaching is not given according to an older syllabus.
