Conditions for assessment are in the lab section.

- Only students who receive all credits from the lab work and are granted the assessment (“zápočet”) can be examined.
- The labs contribute 50% to your final evaluation, the written part of the exam contributes 40% and the oral part 10%.
- A threshold for passing the exam is set, usually between 5-10 points (out of 40), depending on the complexity of the test.
- Your grade chances after the written exam test and before the oral exam are illustrated in the image below. Beware: The scheme is
**approximate only**, but illustrates how the oral exam influences the final grade. - The questions used in the test are available here (if one can solve these questions, one will likely do well in the exam)
- The oral starts approximately 2 hours after the end of the test, as soon as the tests are graded. Alternatively, the oral might take place the following day, if the number of tests to correct is high.
- The oral part is compulsory! Note that if during the oral examination it becomes clear that the student cannot explain how they obtained a result in the written exam, the examiner may re-assess the grading of the written exam.
- Example oral exam questions are available here.
