Teaching at the university is conducted in three different forms: lectures, seminars, and laboratory practice. Attendance at seminars and labs is strictly regulated by university rules; absence over 30% of classes entail a ban from examinations. There are two ways of assessment. A practical mark is awarded at the end of predominantly practical courses, and are solely based on a student’s term-time progress. An examination is required at theoretical courses, which can be taken in the exam period.
In Hungary, a 5-point grading system is used. 1 is the only failing grade. There are only whole numbers in grading.
Evaluation methods beyond the scope of the university regulations described above are at the lecturer’s discretion. The list is long, but the most common ones are
● mid-term and end-of-term written tests,
● project works,
● oral presentations, etc.,
or any combination of them. There are no fixed percentage categories for different grades, but most commonly 50% is required for a pass. Normally, one retake is offered for a missed assignment. Term-time requirements with course syllabi, as well as dates and deadlines are listed in a document by the lecturer, and made public on the faculty website before the start of the semester.
The evaluation of progress is checked in the following ways:
a) during the semester with written or oral presentation, written test, or assessing home assignment,
(plan, measurement minutes etc.), with practical mark or signature,
b) passing a pre-examination during the semester,
c) passing an exam or a comprehensive exam in the exam period and
d) with final examination.
