Announcements 2017/2018

Credit for classes – weekly tests.

  1. In order to get a credit for classes, the student must get at least 60% of the total number of points from all weekly tests, from the given part (general histology, embryology, microscopic anatomy).
  2. If the student did not achieve 60%, he must get credit for all the tests for the classes for which he did not get 6 points. Not getting the minimum of 60% from all the retaken tests, results in not being admitted to the intermediate/final exam.
  3. All tests needs to be retaken before intermediate examinations.

Students have only 3 days after the publication of results to check their question and answer card. Only students who missed 2 points are allowed to check their question and answer card.
