19.    Conditions for acquiring teacher’s signature and for taking final exam Lectures and tutorials attendance and successful completion of lab exercises.
20.  Forms of assessment During the semester, two partial written exams are provided (at the middle and at the end of the semester, lasting 150 minutes) and a test of laboratory exercises (after the exercises). For students who have passed the partial exams and the test of laboratory exercises, a final oral exam can be conducted (duration 60 minutes). The points from the partial exams, the points from the homework assignments and the points from the laboratory exercises, as well the points of the final oral exam are included in the final grade.
In the planned exam sessions, a written exam is taken (duration 180 minutes). For students who have passed the written exam and the laboratory exercise test, a final oral exam (duration 60 minutes) can be administered. The points from the written exam, the points from the homework assignments and the points from the laboratory exercises, as well the points from the final oral exam are included in the final grade.
It is allowed to use a calculator during the exam, but it is not allowed to use books, scripts, manuscripts or notes of any kind, as well as mobile phone, tablet or any other electronic device
