Course information

General information

 

Prerequisite subject: Biology I
Credits: 2+2
Attendance: 75% of the lessons and practices
Exam: written test in the exam period.


Biology II
covering Basic Human Genetics has theoretical (GYKGEN109E2A - lecture) and laboratory (GYKGEN109G2A - practice) parts too. According to the Academic and Examination Rules (17§ 7-8.) the students must visit at least 75% of the practices. Attendance on the practices will be checked weekly. More than three absences from the practices 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.

Remember the exact time of lectures and practices. Being late (10 or more minutes) from practice is considered as an absence.

In this semester you have two midterms: in the 5th (Moodle test) and 12th week (Moodle test) 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 grade. Requirements of practice signature and grade are: not more than three absences from the practices and the average of midterm grades has to be minimum 2.0. Requirement of lecture signature is: practice grade and not more than three absences from the practice. 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 homework, too.

If you have got lecture signature, in the examination period you will have final exam that will be a Moodle test (multiple choice, essay, gap filling 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.

 

There will be more information on the homepage of the Department (http://gsi.semmelweis.hu, the user name and password is on course datasheet of the Neptun): eg. lecture and practice presentations, detailed topic list for midterms and final exam.

 

Literature:

  • Genetics and genomics (e-book) - http://gsi.semmelweis.hu/ (The user name and password is on course datasheet of the Neptun)
  • Some chapters of Alberts et al.: Essential Cell Biology. (third or fourth edition) Garland Publ. Inc. are also useful.

Exam

Dear Students,


Please, find below more information about Biology II Exam.

The Biology II. exam is organized every Monday and Thursdays in the exam period. The place of the exam is our practical Labs in the NET Building.

The semester is finished by a final exam that will be a Moodle test (multiple choice, essay question , TEM and LM photos, family tree, kariogram, evaluation of molecular genetic studies etc.) similar to midterms covering practice and lecture parts of both Biology I and Biology II. For passing (Grade 2-5), you have to reach more than 50 % of the exam scores and you have to reach 50% of scores both in Biology I and II questions. The exam questions are based on the labeled chapters of Essential Cell Biology and the e-book, lecture and practice presentations and handouts. Please, see “Exam” tab on our webpage in the examination period, for more information about the exams.

The exam days are published in the Neptun system, but the starting time may  be varied and will be fixed in the Neptun the day before the exam. Signing up and modification of the exam days 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. Please consider the registration deadlines for the exams. The time, the place and number of students may change after your registration, so check these parameters before the exam.

Students have three exam chances. In the examination period there are voluntary online consultations at Monday (visit the Consultation tab for further details).

The result of the exam will be in the Neptun within 24 hours.

The exam grade will be calculated as follows:

Exam topic:

The whole semester course of Biology I. and Biology II will be included (all lectures, practical’s see the exam topic list below). There will be for example single choice questions, figures, drop-down list, and make-order-type questions.

Exam topic list: doc 

To pass the exam you have to reach 50% of scores (minimum 14 scores) both in Biology I and II questions.

Please, find me in e-mail if you have more questions
