Rules for performance on examination at the Institute of Pathology in the subject Pathology

1) Specifying the examination dates

The dates of examination will be announced in the 5th week of the semester . They will be entered in the SIS. All dates on which the exam can be taken will be specified. This number of dates will be definitive.

The examination dates (also called “terms”) will be set in the following periods:

A subject in the summer semester

- pre-terms (22. 5. –4. 6. 2017)

- terms in the regular examination period of the summer semester (5. 6. – 30.6. 2017)

- terms during summer holidays (3. 7. – 31. 8. 2017)

- terms in the second part of the regular examination period (1. 9. – 13. 9. 2017)

A subject in the winter semester

- terms in the regular examination period of the summer semester (5. 6. – 30.67. 2017)

- first 2 weeks in summer holidays (3. 7. – 14. 7. 2017)

- terms in the second part of the regular examination period (1. 9. – 13. 9. 2017)

The last term can be held not later than two weeks before the beginning of the next academic year (see the Rules). After that, no more exams can be performed or terms applied for, even if not all possible terms/resits offered have been taken.

2) Rules for registration for exams and cancellation

The start of registration for specific examination dates will be entered in SIS, and it will be different in particular groups of terms.

It will be specific for the following groups of terms:

- pre-terms + regular terms: from 28.3.2017

- terms during summer holidays + terms in the second part of the examination period: from 3. 7. 2016

A student can only take the exam if registered for the term in SIS, and when all requisites for the exam have been met.

Registration for an exam is not determined by obtaining the credit but taking the exam is, apart from the credit in the given subject, also limited by completion of any subject that is specified as a (pre)requisite. A student who fails to meet the given requisites will be deleted from the list for the term before examination, of which he/she will be informed by e-mail. This deletion will not reduce the number of terms further available for the student.

Registration for particular examination dates (“terms”) will be possible at the latest 2 days prior to the date of the exam.

Cancellation will be possible at the latest 3 days prior to the date of the exam.

3) Failure to turn up for examination and apology

The student who fails to turn up for the examination that he/she has registered for cannot register for another examination date (see Regulations, Article 6, Subsection 16, and Rules, Articles 8 and 9).

The student must apologise to the principal teacher of the subject:

Prof. MUDr. Jaroslava Dušková, CSc., jaroslava.duskova@lf1.cuni.cz

or to the person authorized by the latter:

Alena Gajdošová, alena.gajdosova@lf1.cuni.cz

in writing or in electronic mail, giving and substantiating the reasons for the apology.

The student will be informed about acceptance of the apology and also deleted from the original list so that he/she can register for another date.

The principal teacher of the subject can require specification of the apology or its reasons if he/she finds the apology insufficient.

4) Re-examinations

A student can take an examination in a subject for three times as a maximum, i.e. the student is entitled to two re-examinations, and no extraordinary terms beyond that are allowed (Regulations, Article 6, Subsection 16). However, if the student does not exploit the above options within the set examination dates, this does not entitled him/her to a special date of examination to be appointed for him/her personally (ibid.).

No more examination dates (“terms”) will be set.

Further, no examinations can be taken after the end of the second part of the regular examination period in September, or after the last term announced. No extraordinary terms or “Dean’s terms” are allowed.
