A written test multiple choice of 10 question. A brier oral exam could be necessary if the teacher need it to confirm the written test.
Antropology: The exam consists of an oral test
The objectives of the Biology Module are to provide basic information on: 1) Structure activity / function relationship of cells and organelles; 2) Transduction Translation from Genes to Proteins; 3) Molecular Mechanisms of Muscle Contraction; 6) Tissue repair and Stem Cells.
Antropology:To provide basic knowledge of biological anthropology. To understand the evolutionary aspects of human morphology and learn the anthropometric methods.
