(2) A maximum of two midterm examinations can be scheduled in a day for courses of the same semester.
(3) Midterm examinations can be oral or written. Evaluations concerning projects, laboratory works and similar that are qualified as separate courses can be evaluated as midterm examinations if the relevant instructor approves.

(5) An excuse examination for a midterm examination is arranged for students with an excuse accepted by the Faculty Administration. Students who have an excuse declared in the three weekdays following the announcement of the examination scores and accepted by the Faculty Administration, can participate in the excuse examination. The score for a midterm examination that is not taken and for which there is no excuse declared, is zero (0).
Appealing written examination scores
ARTICLE 18 – (1) Students can request the analysis of their examination paper for evaluation errors in the three days following the announcement of the examination scores by applying to the relevant student office with a written petition.
(2) The deanship establishes a commission of three people including the lecturer of the course. The analysis and practices that will be performed upon the appeal have to be completed in the ten days following the declaration of the student's written petition to the commission. The results are notified in written to the deanship.
Course evaluation and final grades
ARTICLE 19 – (1) The credits of a course is the sum of weekly theoretical lecture hours, one half of the weekly practical lecture hours and one half of the laboratory lecture hours.
(2) The achievement grade of a course is determined using scores received from the final examination and from midterm examinations, short examinations, practices, assignments, projects, seminars and similar semestrial works.
(3) The contribution of the final examination score to the final achievement grade can not be less than 40% and greater than 60%.
(4) A student who did not take the final examination for any reason receives a zero (0) from that examination.

(5) In undergraduate program, the achievement of a student in a course is determined with the relative evaluation method.
