b)    The mark(s) (on a scale from 0 to 20) the applicant obtained in the specific subject(s) in secondary education listed under “Specific Exams” for the course in question (to make entry accessible for students with backgrounds in specific disciplines), which will contribute 40% to the applicant’s final admission score.
