If the exam is taken in a written form, the professor is obliged to inform the students before taking the exam what aids they can use during the exam. The student can taka a maximum of two exams from the same study program per day, i.e., a maximum of 5 exams in one exam session.

The forms of knowledge testing can be written, oral, practical and combined. The written test of knowledge should last from 40 to 60 minutes, the oral test from 20 to 40 minutes per candidate, and the combined test of knowledge can last a maximum of the same sum of the written and oral test of knowledge. The manner of the knowledge test is determined by the course professor.
