Assessment methods
The tuition is realised in the form of practical courses. The students' presence in these courses is strictly required; a maximum of two unexcused absences is tolerated. Students are allowed to substitute a maximum of TWO classes with another group. Substitutions are not possible in the weeks when Progress Test take place. Students must inform the teacher of the group in which they intend to substitute their missed class in writing in advance. If they fail to do so, they will not be allowed to attend the class. If a student has more than two unexcused absences, they will not be allowed to take the Final test. The tuition is finished by a course-unit credit given on the basis of the students' presence, preparation for classes, sitting Progress Tests and their successful passing of a credit test. The basic limit for passing all tests is 70%. In case of passing four Progress tests, which are obligatory for all students, the basic limit in the credit test is reduced by 10%.Students with the complete final average score of 90% in ALL Progress tests do not have to take the Final test. Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam by awarding grade "N" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
