2. Pre-Requisites

No prerequisites have been established, although it is very recommended to have passed the first-year Chemistry course.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

Gravimetric and Volumetric Analysis is a subject that belongs to module 2 (Fundamentals of Chemistry). Gravimetric and Volumetric Analysis and and Fundamental of Analytical Chemistry constitute Analytical Chemical Matter which has 12 credits. Both of them are taught in the first semester of the second year.

It is a compulsory subjectof 6 ECTS (4.5 theoretical credits and 1.5 practical credits). Furthermore, the knowledge acquired in this subject is necessary to learn subjects from other areas of knowledge, due to its multidisciplinary character

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Laboratory sessions 15.00% 15.00% The evaluation will take into account the work done during the laboratory practices sessions and the reports presented from each practice
It is necessary to obtain a grade of 5 out of 10 to pass the course. If this is not achieved, a specific test will have to be carried out in the ordinary and / or extraordinary exame.
The laboratory sessions are of compulsory attendance
Mid-term tests 40.00% 0.00% A written assessment test that will consist of solving theoretical, theoretical-practical questions and numerical / analytical problems from lessons 1 to 3
Final test 40.00% 85.00% A written assessment test that will consist of solving theoretical, theoretical-practical questions and numerical / analytical problems from lessons 4 to 6 . A final test will only be done by students who have not passed the mid-term test or who want to improve their grade The final test will consist of solving theoretical, theoretical-practical questions and numerical / analytical problems for the entire subject. In this case the assessment of this exam will be 80%
It is necessary to obtain a minimum grade of 5, to be able to compute it with the rest of the activities.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 5.00% 0.00% The student will be asked to deliver solved exercises, solve different issues related to the subject, solve practical cases
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    To pass the course it is necessary:
    1.- Obtain a grade equal to or greater than 4 in the final test or in the average of the progress tests (the progress test grades must be greater than 4)
    2.- Obtain a grade of 4 out of 10 in the laboratory practices (mandatory).
    3.- obtain a minimum grade of 5 once the evaluation percentages of each activity (theoretical part, problems-cases and laboratory practices) have been applied.


    The applied assessment percentages will be 80% for the final test 0r progress tests , 15% for laboratory practices and 5% for problem solving
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    To pass the course it is necessary:
    1.- Obtain a grade equal to or greater than 4 in the final test
    2.- Obtain a grade of 4 out of 10 in the laboratory practices (mandatory).
    3.- obtain a minimum grade of 5 once the evaluation percentages of each activity ( 85% for the final test and 15% for laboratory practices.).

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The final mark of this examen will be obtained by taking a final exam (85%) and the grade obtained from the laboratory practices (15%) will be taken into account. It is necessary to obtain at least a rating of 4 out of 10 in both items.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same as in the retake examen
