Dear Students,


I hope everything is well with you.

Regarding the Re-Sit Exam of Models in Finance (Época de Recurso) of February 2, 2021, 15:00, the written and computational exams will be held exclusively online through the Teams platform (I will send the link by e-mail and it will also be available at the teams page in the Team “Exam of Models in Finance – February 2”). The students must have their cameras on, sound on and should also share their screen.

In February, 8, if needed, we will have short oral examinations, also trough Teams. If you need to present to this short oral examination to confirm your marks in the written exam, I will send you an email before February 6. If you do not need to present to oral examination, I will send you also an email with that information.


The basic rules are as follows:


  1. In February, 2, 15:00 (Portuguese time) the students registered in the Exam (Época de Recurso) should login in the MIF exam Teams Page, with the video camera on, the sound on and you should also share the screen. You can download from Aquila your exam paper questions.

You then have 10 minutes to send the files with your script files, plots and answers (you can write your answers as comments in your script files).  You should zip all the files and send it to me by Aquila and by e-mail. After that, you can disconnect from Teams.
  5. In February 8, 15:00 (Portuguese time), if you need to do the oral examination, you should connect to the Oral Examination team in Teams. I  will send you the link until February, 6, if you need to do this.
