A precondition for obtaining the course-unit credit is 100% attendance and demonstration of basic knowledge during the course. The student who fails the 100% attendance due to an illness (after the presentation of a medical certificate) substitutes the course to the full extent during the examination period of the semester. The practical examination (test on cadaver) is a part of the final ANATOMY exam and is carried out at the same date of the final ANATOMY EXAM. A minimum of 6 out of 10 possible points (grade E) in examination is required for continuation to the theoretical part of the exam.
