Credit requirements:

1) Elaboration of all required protocols and tasks from laboratory exercises according to the teacher's assignment and their submission within the set deadlines. Correction of submitted works according to the teacher's instructions.

2) Active participation in laboratory exercises; duly excused and compensated absences.

Exam evaluation:

1) Written semester test given at the lecture during the semester (20% points). The questions are from the content of lectures and exercises, including the assigned independent study and homework, discussed by the end of the immediately preceding teaching week. Participation in the semester test is not mandatory and its completion is not a condition for obtaining credit.

2) Final exam (80% points). The exam is in written form. The questions are from the content of lectures and exercises, including the assigned independent study and homework. It is not allowed to use literature or other help during the exam. The condition for including points from the exam in the overall evaluation of the subject is the gain of at least 40 points (50%) from the final written exam.

Students are expected to have knowledge of mathematics, physics, physical chemistry, anatomy and physiology in the first four semesters of the field of BMT when entering the semester test and exam questions.
