25 multiple choice type questions and 2 biochemistry problem sets (panels) are asked. Students may obtain 1 score for each correctly solved multiple choice questions. The both problem sets are evaluated by your own laboratory teachers (points: 0, 2, 3, 4, 5).  We calculate the sum of your scores and points of your midterm examinations and the tests are graded by the proposed limits of the table below:

Proposed limits for the marks of midterm are:

Sum of the grades and scores Grade of the midterm examination
0-18 1 (fail)
19-22 2 (pass)
23-26 3 (satisfactory)
27-30 4 (good)
31-35 5 (excellent)

The grade for the midterm exam is 1 (fail), if (i) the sum of the scores and the points is 18, or less (ii) each of the problem sets are evaluated by 0.

Failed midterms might be retaken twice.

The first retake is written, comprising 25 multiple choice type questions and 2 biochemistry problem sets.
