Attendance to lectures is obligatory (5/2007 circular letter of the Dean, Student guide 27.§ /I). The Department of Physiology and Biochemistry verifies the attendance to lectures on a random basis.

The absence (for any other educational or medical reason) has to be certified. Students will lose all their points collected during the semester if the number of missing lectures registered exceed three (see requirements system).

Tests and exams will track student performance based on both lecture notes (PowerPoint presentations in PDF format; elearning.univet.hu) and the oral material of lectures.
