Rules and Conditions

Teams will be ranked according to their final classification in the project to be developed in the subject during the school year in question, together with the classification in the different phases of the project, as follows:

  • During the semester the subject of the extra work is made public, and the students who so wish, and in order to be able to proceed in the selection process for the merit award, should register their team for this phase;
  • During the semester it is made public the date when the extra work is due, as well as the day, when the final pitch of the project is due;
