In case of insufficient and unwarranted number of attendances student loses the right to get the signature and shall be subject to re-enter and listen to the next academic year. All excused absences beyond the permitted should be documented. Students have to actively participate in teaching at lectures and exercises and their willingness to teamwork is expected in solving group exercises. The prerequisite for taking the written exam is required number of earned points from the class attendances (lectures, exercises and seminars) and passing the album and colloquium at the end of semester.
