For the regular Anatomy II students, who passed the Anatomy II theoretical exam during the current semester’s exam period (2019/2020 summer exam period) the Anatomy II practical exam will be reduced to a pin-test on bones and formalined specimen (visceral organs + heart). The same applies for retake/inactive students, who need to pass the A2 practical exam in the August/September exam period.
