Lecture ppt presentations

Required Textbook:            

Abbas, Lichtmann, Pillai, Basic Immunology 5th Edition,Elsevier, 2015, eBook ISBN: 9780323400145, eBook ISBN: 9780323400114, eBook ISBN: 9780323400152, Paperback ISBN: 9780323390828 (The textbook is your resource and will help you understand this material. It contains many of the visuals presented in the lectures. Pay careful attention to the Figures and to the questions and guidelines for study at the end of each chapter.)


Semi-final exam:

The semester ends up with a colloquium (semi-final exam; exam period: December 13, 2021 - January 28, 2022).
Semi-final exam (date and time set by Neptun) – written test.

The exam dates will be published one month before the beginning of the exam period. Registration for the exam dates (or modifying the registration) can be arranged exclusively online by the students’ registration system (NEPTUN). If you want to change your exam day, first you have to cancel your earlier sign up. Since we have to book the exam rooms in advance, we cannot change (increase) the maximum number of examinees.

For taking the exam, students have to prove their identity by an official formal personal document with a photo (i.e. passport, student card, driving license).


Your mark will be calculated as follows:

Students must first complete a pop-up test and score at least 13 points out of 15 multiple-choice questions in order to continue the exam. The possible MC questions of the pop-up test are published on the website along the semester.

The exam test is a 45 points test, including multiple choice questions, may include short answer, table fill-in, matching, drawing type questions and essay questions.

The topics are based on the textbooks and the lectures, so attending the latter ones greatly helps students to successfully prepare for the exam. At the exam, it is not sufficient to repeat memorized topics from the textbook and presentations, but you have to be able to synthesize and integrate your knowledge from different parts. The exam topics for FM students are the same as the topics of Basic Immunology (GYGEN070E1A) 00 course.

Recording of the exam tasks is NOT permitted. Students in violation of these policy may have legal action taken against them.

The announcement of the results takes two working days, depending on the number of examinees. All test scores will be posted to Neptun when available. Do not email asking when grades will be posted or for your scores; these emails will not receive a response.

If you miss an exam, the retake exam can be taken upon payment of a retake fee. If you miss the exam for a valid reason you must request deferred standing. To request deferred standing you must submit a supporting documentation to the Students Administration Office of the Department (not to the Secretary) (NET 623) within 3 business days of the missed exam. Doctor’s notes are NOT sufficient for missed exams; you MUST have your doctor fill out the Attending Physician’s Statement (please make sure you are using the current version of the Attending Physician’s statement form – no other versions will be accepted). Exam missed without certification means the loss of one exam possibility.
