Curriculum evaluation (AC) aims to analyse the qualifications of candidates and is expressed on a scale from 0 to 20, with valuation up to the hundredths.

The interview (E=E1*0,5+E2*0,5) aims to clarify any of the points of the curriculum and discuss the work plan and is expressed on a scale from 0 to 20 values, with valuation up to the hundredths.

The ranking formula for the final placement will be AC*0.7+E*0.3.
