    9. Method of instruction

    Form of education: Lecture. Spring semesters: in English, fall semesters: in Hungarian

    10. Assessment
    • In the teaching period:one in-class test, consisting of a test and a part to be answered in writing. A correct answer of 40% of the test questions is required to meet the mid-term requirement (ie. to get the signature). The test score will count towards your exam mark.
    • In the examination period: written exam. The exam paper consists of a test and a part to be answered in writing. Correctly answering less than 40% of the test questions will result in insufficient exam marks.
    • The way to determine the exam mark: if both the in-class (or the replacement in-class) and the exam test scores are 40-40%, the grade is at least sufficient. The exam mark is based on the weighted sum of the written exam score and the mark on the exam (or replacement / correction exam). 
    • Note: The exam mark of a student who is re-enrolling a subject and who has already signed the subject will be determined in the semester of obtaining the signature or, if the student has requested it in writing by the end of the first week of semester.
    11. Recaps

    There is one possibility to repeat the test in the teaching period and there is a final one in the official recap period.

    12. Consultations

    Individual consultation: upon appointment with the lecturers.
