Rules and requirements for creating study plans
Studies are assessed by credits and examinations stipulated by study plans; the student is notified of these through the information system.
The student registers for examinations using the information system.
The student is entitled to a second and third attempt to pass an examination. If neither of these attempts proves successful, the Dean may in exceptional cases permit a fourth attempt, known as a Dean´s Examination. A Dean´s Examination is administered by a commission with the participation of the Dean or a Vice-Dean appointed by the Dean. It is not permitted to repeat an examination for the main subjects or to repeat written examinations.
If the student is evaluated with an „F“ or „credit denied“, his or her studies shall be terminated in accordance with Section 56 (1)(b) of the Act on Higher Education Institutions, as amended. The decision is covered by Section 68 of the Act. If, for serious reasons, a student is unable to sit for an examination, he or she shall excuse himself/herself in advance; otherwise he or she shall be regarded as having failed the examination. A student may also arrange with a pedagogue to sit for an examination prior to the stipulated date.
The credit is an ungraded form of assessment of studies. It is allocated upon fulfilment of obligations stipulated for individual subjects and is recorded in the information system with the word „Credited“ (Z). An examination is a graded form of assessment of studies, which tests knowledge and level of creativity in the relevant subject. It may be practical, written, oral or a combination of these methods. For the main subjects, examinations are usually conducted before a committee.
The examinations are graded on the scale „A, B, C, D, E, F“.
A (excellent performance exceeding the relevant criteria),
B (above-average performance with a minimum of errors),
C (average performance with an acceptable number of errors),
D (acceptable performance with a larger number of errors),
E (performance that meets the minimum requirements),
F (unacceptable performance).
Apart from the aforementioned scale, the letter „X“ may also be used in the information system; this indicates that it has been decided not to allocate a grade for the relevant examination date. The evaluation must be registered in the information system within two working days following the examination or the allocation of the credit.
