Important information about the test and final grade in Surgery

The test consists of 100 questions.

There are 60 less difficult questions with single correct answer, and for each correct answer the student gets 0.5 points, 30 points in total.

There are 40 difficult questions with two or more correct answers, and for each completely correct answer the student gets 1 point, 40 points in total. Note that for partially correct answer no points are obtained.

Therefore, the maximum number of points for the test is 70. Time limit for test completion is 100 minutes. 

Final grade in Surgery is calculated as a sum of pre- final test activities, with 30 points in total (maximum 10 for both colloquia, 20 in total, and 10 for class attendance and activities, with which all the students are granted due to the recent situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic), and final test result, with 70 points in total, as shown in the formula:

Final points (max 100) = colloquiums 1&2 (20 points max) + activities (all have 10 points) + test (70 points max)

Final points

Final grade

0 – 50


51 – 60
