Acceptance of the semester

Requirements system of Biochemistry 1.:

Requirements of the acceptance of the semester:

  • Fulfilling the requirements of the theoretical part of Biochemistry 1.:
    • Regular visiting of the lectures (no more than 3 unjustified absences can be accepted).
    • Completion of 60% (18 points) of the maximal scores (30 points) on the written midterm test or midterm retake. If midterm retake is failed, the semester can be accepted if the student gets min. 18 points (60%) on the end-term examination at the end of the semester.

 

  • Fulfilling the requirements of the practical part of Biochemistry 1.:
    • Successful performance of all laboratory courses.
    • Attending on each plenary practical.
    • Completion of 60% (18 points) of the maximal scores (30 points) in the laboratory courses.

If the written midterm test (or the midterm retake or the end-term examination) has not been completed, but the requirements of the practical part of Biochemistry 1. have been fulfilled, the semester is not accepted; however, only the midterm has to be repeated during a later semester. If the requirements of the practical part of Biochemistry 1. have not been fulfilled, but the written midterm test (or the midterm retake or the end-term examination) has been completed successfully, the semester is not accepted; however, only the practical part has to be repeated during a later semester.

It means that the theoretical (lectures, midterm) and practical (laboratory practicals) parts of Biochemistry 1. can be completed independently from each others. But please note that Biochemistry 1. labs and midterm will be held only in the spring semester of each academic year.

Evaluation system at the end of the Biochemistry 1. course:

At the end of the Biochemistry 1. course, students will be evaluated by a practical course grade (3 credits) if all requirements of Biochemistry 1. are fulfilled. The grade is evaluated after summation of the points completed on practicals and on the midterm (or midterm retake, or end-term examination) as follows:

 

55 – 60 points:       excellent (5)

49 – 54 points:       good (4)

43 – 48 points:       medium (3)

36 – 42 points:       satisfactory (2)

0 – 35 points:         unsatisfactory (1)

 

Requirements system of Biochemistry 2.:

Attending the Biochemistry 2. course:

Biochemistry 2. lectures and laboratory practicals can be visited and the Biochemistry 2. midterm can be written even without having Biochemistry 1. accepted. It means that completing the requirements of Biochemistry 1. is not a prerequisite of registering and attending the Biochemistry 2. course. However, attending the Biochemistry final exam is only possible after successful completion of all requirements of both Biochemistry 1. and 2. courses.

 

Requirements of the acceptance of the semester:

  • Fulfilling the requirements of the theoretical part of Biochemistry 2.:
    • Regular visiting of the lectures (no more than 3 unjustified absences can be accepted).
    • Completion of 60% (18 points) of the maximal scores (30 points) on the written midterm test or midterm retake. If midterm retake is failed, the semester can be accepted if the student gets min. 18 points (60%) on the end-term examination at the end of the semester.

 

  • Fulfilling the requirements of the practical part of Biochemistry 2.:
    • Successful performance of all laboratory courses.
    • Attending on each plenary practical.
    • Completion of 60% (15 points) of the maximal scores (25 points) in the laboratory courses.

 

If the written midterm test (or the midterm retake or the end-term examination) has not been completed, but the requirements of the practical part of Biochemistry 2. have been fulfilled, the semester is not accepted; however, only the midterm has to be repeated during a later semester. If the requirements of the practical part of Biochemistry 2. have not been fulfilled, but the written midterm test (or the midterm retake or the end-term examination) has been completed successfully, the semester is not accepted; however, only the practical part has to be repeated during a later semester.

It means that the theoretical (lectures, midterm) and practical (laboratory practicals) parts of Biochemistry 2. can be completed independently from each others. But please note that Biochemistry 2. labs and midterm will be held only in the fall semester of each academic year. It should be also regarded that attending the Biochemistry final exam is only possible after successful completion of all requirements of both Biochemistry 1. and 2. courses.

 

 

Evaluation system at the end of the Biochemistry 2. course:

Upon acceptance of the Biochemistry 2. semester, a signature is being given. Studying Biochemistry ends with a final examination (5 credits). Requirements of taking part on the final exam are the successful completion of all requirements of both Biochemistry 1. and 2. courses and completion of Chemistry 2. exam.
