19. Conditions for acquiring teacher’s signature and for taking final exam Completed laboratory exercises
20. Forms of assessment During the semester, two partial written exams are provided (at the middle and at the end of the semester, with duration 120 minutes), tests that are conducted during the classes and a test from laboratory exercises (after the exercises, …). For students who have passed the partial exams and the laboratory exercise test, the exam is considered passed. The other students take the final exam on whole material (duration 120 minutes). The points from the partial exams/final exam and the tests are included in the final grade.
