In order to be able to take the the midterm exams the student needs to be enrolled as a regular student. The part-time students are not obliged to attend classes and don’t have the right to take midterm exams – they only take the final exams. The midterm exams are tests of knowledge which are conducted twice during a semester:
first midterm exam – in the middle of the semester, i.e. after the first 6 weeks of lectures, only for the material studied during those 6 weeks
second midterm exam – at the end of the semester, i.e. after the second 6 weeks of lectures, only for the material studied during those 6 weeks
To be able to take the second midterm exam it is mandatory for the student to have passed the first midterm exam. The students that didn’t pass one of the midterm exams or both midterm exams need to take a final exam for the course.
But, if students pass the exams for both midterm exams they usually are not obliged to take the final exam. However, this may vary from course to course.
The dates for the midterm exams are posted on the E-learning platform, or the students are notified by their professor during the lectures.
