1. The classes are to be held according to the schedule.
2. Students are not to be late for classes.
3. The presence at the classes is mandatory. Two absences during one semester may be the reason of not
giving a credit. The absence on laboratory classes does not excuse the student from possessing the
4. The students have to come for laboratory classes prepared.
5. The tutor may check if students are prepared for laboratory classes. The form of checking (written or
oral) is up to the tutor.
6. Not passing each laboratory classes have to be passed again. Each student can pass each class only
twice. Students which won’t have all classes passed will not be able to write test, and it is equivalent with

second test is to be held will not be allowed to write it.

Safety instructions
1. Students must not bring with them any coats, umbrellas, bags, hats, etc. for the laboratory classes.
2. Students should avoid any situations which may cause danger: long hairs should be braced, too long
nails should be cut and there should be no jewelery on hands etc.
3. During the classes the students must wear lab coats which can be found in the classroom. The coats

The terms of crediting classes in case of excused absence

Final exam
1. After getting the credit students pass final exam (summer semester). The final exam consists of
practical and written part.
2. For the practical exam students must be prepared from all subjects from laboratory classes and know
some practical skills required for understanding the principles of microbiological investigations.
3. During the practical exam, students obtain notes, which point value is added to the total points
obtained during the theoretical exam. The point values are: 3,0 – 0 pkt.
           3,5 – 0 pts
           4,0 – 1 pts
           4,5 – 2 pts

6. The students must get 36 points (60%) from practical and theoretical part.
7. The marks will be given according to the ranges.
9. Students which achieve the average mark from all laboratory classes and tests at least 4,5 won’t have
