Evaluation Type

Evaluation with final exam

Eligibility for exams

Practical Exam, which consists in the identification of anatomical structures. There will be 25 structures to be identified. These will be arranged in pairs, for the students to identify each group of two structures in 1 minute. To obtain the classification of 10 (scale: 0-20), they will need to identify 19 structures, corresponding the classification of 20 for the correct identification of the 25 structures. The intermediate marks will be calculated proportional to the number of structures identified. The students will be admitted to the theoretical exam if they have obtained 10 in the practical exam.
Theoretical exam consists of 50 short answer questions. The minimum classification of 10 has to be obtained.
Once these exams are done, a preliminary classification will be obtained (C) through the following formula: C = P + 3T/4.
The students who will obtain the final classification of Very Good (18, 19 or 20) will have to do an oral exam, being the classification of 17 values assured. This does not apply to the students with a classification ranging 10-17 and who request an oral exam to improve their grade. All the students in these conditions can apply for an oral exam.
