19.    Conditions for acquiring teacher’s signature and for taking final exam Completed practical laboratory exercises and project assignments.
20.    Forms of assessment Examination comprises two midterm exams (max 120 min), tests during the classes, and a laboratory exercises test at the end of semester. After successful completion of these tests, an oral examination may be required (max 60 min). The final mark is based on the points collected from all mentioned tests and the class activity. When mid term exams are not successfully passed, they are replaced by a written exam (max 120 min) during the exam sessions, with other requirements and rules remaining the same. Use of textbooks, any other notes, mobile phones, or other electronic devices, except the calculator, are not allowed.
