Conditions for acceptance of the semester

Maximum of 25 % absence allowed

Mid-term exams

The students will have a short test at the beginning of every practical lab in order to test their preparation for the respective lab. After two failed entrance tests any further failed test would count as an absence.The students will write a test during the semester. The result of this test must be satisfacatory in order to be eligible for the exam. The grade of this test will be the final grade of this course.

Making up for missed classes

The students can be absent two times during the semester. We provide make-up labs (only three of them) at the end of semester.
