Course information

General information

Prerequisite subject: -
Credits: 3
Attendance: 75% of the practicals

Exam: Moodle test in the exam period. 

        

Cell Science is one semester subject for students of Medicine. Claims for exemptions are only considered if handed or emailed to Dr. Orsolya Lang (course coordinator) not later than the 10th of September.

Cell Science has theoretical (lecture) and laboratory (practice) parts.

Lectures are given by the Department of Genetics, Cell- and Immunobiology (DGCI) in Green Lecture Hall (NET Building, Nagyvárad tér 4 Budapest) on Thursday, 835 – 920. For a detailed schedule please visit the Topic list on the homepage or in Moodle.

Practices are weekly given by DGCI in Lab 13- 16 (NET Building).

Practices are obligatory. More than three absences of ANY REASON during a semester invalidate the semester. A notebook for notes and drawings and colored pencils are needed in practice.

Remember the exact time of lectures and practices, don't be late for them. Being late from practice may be considered an absence.

All the belongings in the Labs (Practice Rooms) should be handled with care. Any disappearance or harm in them should be paid for by the groups working in the same room.

In the first semester, you have two Midterms (Moodle tests): on the week 6th and 12th. The exact time will be announced later. Both practice and theory knowledge will be tested. At the end of the semester your performance will be evaluated according to the total scores therefore maximum of 3 bonus scores are offered:

Achievement for the two midterms together

Bonus scores

0-50

50,01-65

65,01-80

80,01-100

These extra scores will be added to the exam scores as bonus scores. Bonus points are only credited to those who have more than 50 % of the exam scores. No opportunity to improve the bonus scores.

During the examination period, you have to give the final exam. You are allowed to give the exam if you have got the signature of the subject. Requirement of signature: not more than 3 absences from the practices that are verified by the practice teacher.

The competition (written) will be on the 13th week, and every student with 3 bonus scores (calculated from the two midterms) is invited.

Exam information

The semester closing exam (Cell Science) is a Moodle test (multiple choice, essays, figures, etc. covering both practical and theoretical parts of the subject). For passing (Grade 2-5) you have to reach more than 50 % of the exam scores.

Online registration for the exam is in the second part of November when the exam days will be published. 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 signup. Please consider the registration deadlines for the exams. The time, the place, and the number of students may change after your registration, so check these parameters before the exam.

Students have three chances to give the exam. The failed exam can be repeated after 1 day with a new registration. During the examination period, there are voluntary consultations (the exact time and location will be given in the website tab.

On the homepage (www.gsi.semmelweis.hu) of the DGCI, more information is found: e.g. slides of lectures, practices, a summary of topics not found in the book, a description of cytological methods, a detailed topic list for midterms and exam.
