Requirements to the exam -
Last update: doc. RNDr. Zdeněk Hlávka, Ph.D. (06.10.2017)

The exam consists of a written and oral part. The written part is preceded by an oral part. Failing the written part means that the whole exam has been failed (and the oral part does not take place). Failing the oral part means that both the written and oral part of the exam must be repeated. The note is determined on the basis of both the written and the oral parts.

The written part consists of examples addressing topics corresponding both to what was presented during the lectures and exercises and to the syllabus of the subject.

Requirements for the oral part of the exam correspond to the syllabus of the subject in the scope that was presented at the lecture.
