The academic year is organised into three terms:
- The first begins in mid-September.
- The second begins in early February.
- The third begins in early July: it includes the summer holiday and the second examination session.
The exams are held at the end of each term: in January for the first term and late May/early June for the second term. Students have the opportunity to resit the examinations for which they have not achieved a satisfactory result (grade of at least 10 out of 20) during a second examination session, which runs from mid-August to early September.
