Organisation of exams and tests

The exam and the test have to result from the content prescribed in the description of the study course and they shall comply with the course teaching methodology.

The duration of the exams and tests shall be determined by the academic department. The student shall have not less than 30 minutes for preparing their answer in the oral part of the exams and tests. Duration of oral examining of each student shall not exceed 30 minutes in any exam. If there are several separate questions in the exam, the student has the right to determine the sequence of his answers.

The semester test in the study courses within the study system of cycles may be taken also during the semester after having finished the cycle, but the exam or the test is allowed to be taken before the examination period with the authorisation of the Head of the academic department outside the time of acquisition of other study courses, as well as after the requirements of the ongoing study course have been fulfilled before the exam or the test.

Organisation of exams and tests within the study system of regular classes

Exams and tests shall be taken after successful completion of the semester examinations specified in the description of the study course in compliance with the curriculum in the examination period following the study semester in which the study course has been acquired.

The exam or the test may be taken before the examination period in exceptional cases with the authorisation of the Head of the academic department outside the time of acquisition of other study courses, as well as after the requirements of the ongoing study course have been fulfilled before the exam or the test.

Academic departments shall inform students (including electronically) about the exam and test schedule, including the dates and times for retaking failed exams and tests no later than two weeks before the date of the examination providing at least two day interval between the exams and tests in various study courses for the same group of students.

Students who fail to arrive for the exam or the test within the specified time due to illness or any other reason mentioned in Article 5.14 or who fail to get the right to take the examination, retain the possibility to take it twice by receiving the individual examination form from the Dean’s Office prior to that.

Exams and tests shall be taken during the examination period or in case of a valid reason (illness, business trip, participation in ERASMUS Exchange programme and the like) during the extension of the examination period allocated by the Dean. The extension of the examination period may not exceed one week after the end of the examination period.

Retaking exams and tests

A student may take the failed exam or the test one more time during the examination period and during the extension of the examination period.

The Dean is eligible to grant a one-time extension of the examination period. Deadlines are determined individually taking into account reasons for academic failures (illness, business trip, etc.). The maximum time limit to the extension of the winter examination period is the end of the first week of the spring semester. The maximum time limit to the extension of the summer examination period is 5 weekdays after the end of the examination period. Pregnant female students and student parents of both sexes may take the exams of the respective examination period within 5 months after childbirth according to their individual plan during the examination period, after it and during the first two months of the next semester after having passed the semester examinations.

If a student fails to pass the examinations prescribed in the curriculum by the end of the examination period extension, the Dean shall propose to expel the student.

Organisation of state examinations

The Dean’s Council shall approve the procedure of state examinations in each study programme on recommendation of the Head of the study programme; and the Head of the study programme shall provide information about this procedure to students.

Development and defence of qualification papers, research projects and Bachelor’s and Master’s theses shall take place in accordance with relevant regulations.

The resulting assessment of state examinations shall be announced to the student no later than on the day following the examination.

The student, whose Bachelor’s or Master’s Thesis supervisor has refused to sign the thesis and the thesis has got two negative reviews, shall not be allowed to defend his/her Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis and shall be expelled.

If a student fails the state examination, he/she shall be expelled. The student may recommence his/her studies and retake the state examination during the next period of state examinations.

The course paper, qualification paper, research project, Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis shall be redone prior to its repeated defence.
