the weight of two (2) or three (3) credit
units, suggesting that they are taught for
thirty (30) or forty-five (45) hours in the
semester, two (2) or three (3) one-hour
periods per week. In courses with strong
practical component, this means that there
are fifteen (15) hours of teaching and forty-
five (45) hours of practicals to qualify for
two (2) credit units or thirty (30) hours of
teaching and forty-five (45) hours of

final conclusion. The final examination in
