One has to write a test in both parts of the subject (anatomy and biophysics). The biophysics test will contain 30 multiple choice questions, with four possibilities of answers, one of them is correct. To pass you have to give 15 correct answers, from 19 points it will be 3, from 23 points 4, from 27 points 5. This is one part of the final grade. The other part is the result of anatomy test. The final grade is the average of this two. If the average is between two grades, the percentages are taken into account.
The test from both anatomy and biophysics part will be in the student laboratory of the Department of Biophysics on Apr. 27 according to the following scedule:
at 15:15 groups EM3, 4, 15, 16
at 16:15 groups EM1, 2, 5, 6
at 17:15 groups EM7, 8, 9, 10
at 18:15 groups  EM 11, 12, 13, 14
