Assessment and rotation

Assessment of learning outcomes

An examination is the main method of assessment of learning outcomes. Certain subjects may be assessed as passed or failed. Examinations and pass/fail evaluations are carried out either in writing or orally and in writing.

Assessment of learning outcomes is carried out by the lecturer of the course unit or a commission of specialists of that field which also includes the lecturer of the course unit. A commission may be formed for the assessment of learning outcomes and in other cases under a written request submitted by students or unclassified students.

 

Main and extended examination session

Examinations and pass/fail evaluations are taken during the examination period at the time specified in the timetable.

A student who is unable to come to the examination (pass/fail evaluation) due to an illness or other relevant reasons may submit an application to the Dean (Head) of the faculty (unit) requesting for permission to retake the examination (pass/fail evaluation) at another time during the main examination period or permission to extend the examination period.

The examination period may be extended for a period of time specified in the certificate of incapacity for work issued by medical institutions, however the examination period cannot be extended for more than one month by counting from the beginning of the new semester. A student must inform the administration of the faculty (unit) about his reasons for not coming to an examination (pass/fail evaluation) within three working days after the examination (pass/fail evaluation) date specified in the examination timetable, and submit a supporting document within the deadline indicated by the administration.

 

Academic debts and their elimination

A student can retake failed examinations (pass/fail evaluations) once no later than within the first two weeks of the new semester. If the examination period was extended for the student, the student must retake the failed examinations (pass/fail evaluations) within two weeks after the end of the extended period.

When a student fails an examination (pass/fail evaluation) during the retakings, the student must apply to the administration of the core academic unit (faculty) in order to repeat the course unit (module). To repeat a course unit, the student must submit an appropriate application before the semester or at the beginning of it. An established price is paid for repeating a course unit, calculated by multiplying 1/60 of the annual study programme price of the current year by the number of course unit credits.

Students who have debts and/or academic debts of more than 15 credits, as well as students who were not allowed to repeat the studies of these course units shall be expelled from the University.

 

Appeals

Student appeals regarding the final assessment of learning outcomes may be submitted no later than within seven calendar days after the day the assessment of the examination (pass/fail evaluation) is announced.

Appeals regarding violations of the examination or final thesis defence procedures may be submitted by students no later than on the next working day after the day of taking the examination (pass/fail evaluation) or defending the final thesis.

If a student wishes to submit an appeal, he must submit the appeal to the Dispute Resolution Commission of the Core Academic Unit (Faculty).

Appeals shall not be examined regarding the assessment of the final examination (final thesis defence) Decision on examination (pass/fail evaluation) assessment of the Dispute Resolution Commission of the Core Academic Unit (Faculty) shall be final. Other decisions of the Commission may be appealed against to the Central Dispute Resolution Commission no later than within seven calendar days from the date of their submission.

 

Disputes

The Dispute Resolution Commission of the Core Academic Unit (Faculty) shall also examine applications submitted by students regarding disputes related to research and study activities arising between University students and other members of the community working in that Unit. Applications may be submitted to the Commission by any student of the University who believes that his rights were violated. The Commission shall only consider applications concerning members of the University community who work or study in that Unit.

An application may be lodged no later than within one month from the date when the violation was committed or established.

If a student wishes to submit an appeal, he must submit the appeal to the Dispute Resolution Commission of the Core Academic Unit (Faculty).

The Commission must consider the received application and pass a decision within 30 calendar days from the date the application is registered with the Unit. Decisions made by the Commission regarding the relevant disputes may be appealed against to the Central Dispute Resolution Commission no later than within seven calendar days from the date of their submission.

 

Student rating and ranking

A rank is a number of students with the highest course unit (module) examination grades, formed in a descending order of the weighted average of learning outcomes. A rank is formed after each study semester according to the weighted average of the student's learning outcomes of the last semester at the University.

Weighted average of learning outcomes is the average of learning outcomes depending on the number of the studied course unit (module) credits and received grades; the grades of freely chosen course units are not considered when calculating the weighted average of learning outcomes.

Students are ranked:

  • To assess the performance of students and provide comparative information about their academic achievements;
  • When granting incentive scholarships to students;
  • To transfer students from a non-state-funded place to a state-funded place;
  • To compensate the price of studies paid by students;
  • In other cases provided by the core academic unit (faculty).
