In order to get the signature, you have to reach 40% of each subtask (2/5 points, 4/10 points, 8/20 points).

If the subtasks are uploaded lately, points will be subtracted. The presentation materials should be uploaded before the oral presentation! With the subtasks having 3 points, you can be 3 days late. With the other subtasks, you can be 5 days late. The subtask with the December 12 deadline can be only 1 day late (because of administrative reasons)!
