Information about the examination

Pathophysiology

Faculty of Medicine, Semmelweis University

The semifinal exam has two parts that you need to pass in this order:

  • theoretical part: an online exam about the topics of the lectures (lecture slides and audio recordings)
  • practical part: an oral exam (analysis of an ECG tracing and a lab question)

You get a lab question from the set you discussed with your tutor during the practicals.

You need to register to the oral part of the exam in the Neptun system as usual. You will be able to get registered for the theoretical online part in the e-learning system. The online tests take place in the computer rooms (ground floor, near the elevators of the NET building). If you fail the online test (passing level is 60%) you cannot go on to the oral part, a failure gets registered in the Neptun system. If you pass the online test, you may go on to the oral part, and the result of the online part will contribute to your final mark that you get for the exam. There are many overlapping areas between the lecture and practical topics, so it is possible that you get a question at the oral part of the exam that was discussed at one of the lectures.

You can get acquainted with the multiple choice questions of the online exam in the e-learning system (you need to use your SeKA login credentials to log in). Every student has a chance to do 10 questions from every topic during the semester as a practice. This can be done from any computer (i.e. from home as well) during the periods the particular topic is open. Not all topics are open at the same time. The easiest way to get information about which topics are open is to log in to the e-learning system.

There will be a chance to do the online exam during the last week of the semester. If you get a 4 or a 5, it is accepted as a valid exam attempt for the online part. However, if you get a 1 or a 2 or a 3, that is not considered as an exam attempt, the result is deleted. In this case you need to do the online test during the exam period.

You can get a score of 1 maximum for every multiple choice questions in the online test. You get 1 point for the right answer in single selection questions. Multiple selections questions are a bit more complicated. It is possible that 1, 2, 3 or all 4 answers are correct out of the 4 answers given. The right answers may occur in any combination. In addition to 0 or 1 you may get a fraction of a point between 0 and 1 if you gave a partially correct answer to a multiple selection question. You get positive fractions of a point for good answers, but also negative fractions for the wrong answers. If you mark every answer to be right, you will get 0 points. You cannot get less than 0 points to any particular question (even if you mark only wrong answers).

The final exam will be similar to the semifinal, except in addition to the ECG tracing and lab question you will get a hematological case to evaluate as well.
