**Attendance:**

- Students are obliged to attend at least 72 % out of 12 weeks of lectures, exercises, and other activities.
- The teaching staff should monitor and submit Course Attendance Report to the Student Affairs Office at the end of 14th week of each semester.
- The attendance rule for failed overlapping courses is 36 % out of 12 weeks of lectures, exercises, and other activities.
- The attendance rule for the course from the upper semester is 57% out of 12 weeks of lectures, exercises, and other activities.
- Students are not obliged to attend the course if the course is double repeated. However, they need to register the course.

**Exams (Mid-Term Exam, Final Exam, Make-up Exam):**

There are two exams, the Mid-Term and Final Exam, at the middle and at the end of the semester, respectively. The students, who do not earn minimum 50 credit points from the Mid-Term, Final Exam including Homework Assignments, have to take the Make-Up Exam, which counts only for Final Exam credit points. The Academic Calendar defines the terms of the exams announced on the University website.

**Passing Score:**

The maximum number of credit points is collected during the semester, as follows: Mid-term Exam = 40 Credit Points (minimum requirement is 25 % (midterm exam + activity) to enter Final Exam), Final Exam (minimum requirement is 25 % to pass) = 40 Credit Points. Homeworks, quizzes, specific assignments and term papers = 20 Credit Points (minimum requirement is 5 credit points to enter Final Exam). Total=100.
