Semi-final exam: 

The semester ends up with a colloquium (semi-final exam; exam period: May 16, 2022 – July 1, 2022, date and time set by Neptun).
The semifinal exam is an online Moodle exam – 45 min. long test with personal attendance.
The written Moodle exam is divided in two parts in the time and date of the exam:
First students have to complete a Pop-up test with 15 MC questions. For those who completed 13 out of 15 MC questions the exam continues. For those who had less than 13 correct answers, the exam is finished with grade 1. The MC questions of the pop-up test are available on Moodle and on the website of the Department from the end of 12th week of the semester. Second: The exam test consists of multiple choice, may contain short answer, table fill-in, matching, drawing type question for 45 points.
The topics are based on the textbooks and the lectures as well, 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 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 and Moodle virtual rooms in advance, we cannot change (increase) the maximum number of examinees. The announcement of the results takes one workday, depending on the 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). According to the Study and examination rules: "Students are not allowed to take an examination without identifying themselves. Students may identify themselves at the examination by any suitable document, which contains both a signature and a picture. If the student is unable to verify his/her identity, a “did not appear” note has to be recorded on the examination sheet and in NEPTUN, which does not reduce the number of exam opportunities, yet the student is obliged to pay an exam administration fee, which is specified in the Regulations of Refunds and Allowances."
According to this, the photo of any ID, presented on a phone is not suitable for proving identity.
If you miss an exam, the second retake exam (and all others thereafter) 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).
