An examination is the main method of assessment of learning outcomes. Certain subjects may be assessed as passed or failed. Examinations and pass/fail evaluations are carried out either in writing or orally and in writing.
Assessment of learning outcomes is carried out by the lecturer of the course unit or a commission of specialists of that field which also includes the lecturer of the course unit. A commission may be formed for the assessment of learning outcomes and in other cases under a written request submitted by students or unclassified students.
Academic debts and their elimination
A student can retake failed examinations (pass/fail evaluations) once no later than within the first two weeks of the new semester. If the examination period was extended for the student, the student must retake the failed examinations (pass/fail evaluations) within two weeks after the end of the extended period.
When a student fails an examination (pass/fail evaluation) during the retakings, the student must apply to the administration of the core academic unit (faculty) in order to repeat the course unit (module). To repeat a course unit, the student must submit an appropriate application before the semester or at the beginning of it. An established price is paid for repeating a course unit, calculated by multiplying 1/60 of the annual study programme price of the current year by the number of course unit credits.
Students who have debts and/or academic debts of more than 15 credits, as well as students who were not allowed to repeat the studies of these course units shall be expelled from the University.
Student rating and ranking
A rank is a number of students with the highest course unit (module) examination grades, formed in a descending order of the weighted average of learning outcomes. A rank is formed after each study semester according to the weighted average of the student's learning outcomes of the last semester at the University.
Weighted average of learning outcomes is the average of learning outcomes depending on the number of the studied course unit (module) credits and received grades; the grades of freely chosen course units are not considered when calculating the weighted average of learning outcomes.
Students are ranked:
- To assess the performance of students and provide comparative information about their academic achievements;
- When granting incentive scholarships to students;
- To transfer students from a non-state-funded place to a state-funded place;
- To compensate the price of studies paid by students;
- In other cases provided by the core academic unit (faculty).
