Hello it’s Hannah here
i am in my second year of university in France . I am studying sociology . last week we had our final tests for the first semester of the second year . In France they are called partiels . As far as testing goes in university in France .
There are 2 notes you have :
the marks from the Td’ (travail dirigé ) . If I were to describe it , I would call them classes .
the partiels are tests from the lectures . The class work is supposed to compensate for the mark you get in the text for the lectures . (according to my teachers ).
