0-7 points - insufficient (1)

8-9 points - sufficient (2)

10-11 points - good (3)

12-13 points - very good (4)

14-15 points - excellent (5)

 

Written examination for students who did not pass through mid-term examinations consists of 10 questions, each of which carries 1 point, and the grade is calculated according to the following scale:

0-4 points - insufficient (1)

5 points - sufficient (2)

6-7 points - good (3)

9-9 points - very good (4)

10 points - excellent (5)

 

Final grade is calculated as an arithemtic mean of grades for practical training and the grade for written examination or two mid-term examinations.
