Graduate Degree Template

Every test taken during the course and the final tests are online.

Tests are made available in the Student Area and remain available for 21 days (except the final tests that will have their deadline released by the coordination near the time of their execution) and the student can access them via the Dashboard, in the orange box “Tests”. Within this 21-day deadline, the student will have the opportunity to make one attempt and then have 2 other recovery opportunities, in case the student is not able to get a good grade or a specific problem occurs in the first attempt. The highest grade obtained will be the one considered in the statement of grades. The start and end of the deadline of the tests are based on the Brasilia official time, BRT, so be careful if you live in a different time zone. The test is released within 48 hours of the live class. If the test is not made available on the day it was supposed to be, Pecege will send a statement via the system to all the students. *Place may change
