Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Students take final exams apart from their studies and previous exams. They take at least one exam for each term. Besides mid-term exams, students can be quizzed without notice.

Success criteria of assessment about courses (mid-term, homework, final term) are indicated in the curriculum and syllabus. Final terms are examined on the dates and places specified by University. Grades of the students are assessed by lecturer of the class according to midterm exams, final term exam and class attendance. Courses without exams are determined by the head of departments and this is submitted to the Registrar’s Office. Marks of those courses are assessed according to the studies of students during the term. Final grades are delivered along with the criteria of success to the Registrar’s Office by the lecturer.
