Course information

„Biology II.” (GYGENBILE_2A and GYGENBILG_2A)
for students of Pharmacy
in the second semester of 2017/2018 Academic Year 

General information

 

Biology II covering Basic Human Genetics has theoretical (GYGENBILE2A - lecture) and laboratory (GYGENBILG2A - practice) parts too.  According to the Academic and Examination Rules (17§ 7-8.) the students must visit at least 75% of the lessons. Attendance on the lectures and practices will be checked weekly. More than three absences from the practices and more than four absences from the lectures of ANY REASON invalidate the semester, no signature is given and to sit for the exam is not allowed. There are no extra lectures and practices. On the practices a notebook for notes and drawings, and colored pencils are needed.

Remember the exact time of lectures and practices. Being late from practice is considered as an absence.

The slides, microscopes and other belongings in the Labs (Practice Rooms) should be handled with care. Any disappearance or harm in them should be paid by the groups working in the same room.

In this semester you have two midterms: in the 5th (written) and 13th week (written) practice time. On midterms questions will be from practice and lecture. Absence from the midterm is considered as absence from the practice. At the end of the semester your performance will be evaluated by a practical gradeRequirements of practice signature and grade are: not more than three absences from the practices and the average of midterm grades   has to be 2.0. Requirement of lecture signature is: practice grade and not more than four absences from the lectures. In the case of midterm failure you will have a chance for retake during the semester, and if it is needed a very last chance at the beginning of examination period before the final exam. There is no chance to improve midterm grades. You may have written tests, too.

If you have got lecture signature, in the examination period you will have final exam that will be a written test (multiple choice, essay, drawing etc. similar to midterms) covering practice and lecture parts of both Biology I and Biology II. To pass the exam you have to reach 50% of scores both in Biology I and II questions.

Online registration for the exam through Neptun system will be from the second part of April. Students have three exam chances. In the examination period there are voluntary consultations.
