FURTHER INFORMATION
1. Attendance on lectures and practicals

1.1. Lectures
According to the decision of the Faculty Council (14 November, 2006) attendance on lectures is obligatory.
The acceptable number of uncertified absences is maximum 3 per semester. With more than three recorded absences your semester is NOT going to be accepted for that subject, thus it has to be re-taken during a later semester for an additional fee in order to sit for the exam.
Absences because of clinical practices or research activity connected to the diploma thesis are not treated as uncertified absences, but these must be verified on the official certificate by the teacher or the tutor.

1.2. Practicals
The Department registers the attendance at the beginning of each single practical by using the official group assignment provided by the Student’s Secretariat.
With more than 4 recorded absences your semester is NOT going to be accepted for that subject, thus it has to be re-taken during a later semester for an additional fee in order to sit for the exam.
One practical per semester can be missed without any consequence. In case of more absences, the student has to give an account of the subject of missed practical within 2 weeks at the lecturer of the topic. According to these no more than 4 missed practicals will be accepted.
In case of online education to each practical subeject belongs a short online test. This test must be filled in successfully every week at latest till Sunday midnight on the given week. This is the prerequisite of the acceptance of the given practical.
During the whole semester only one missed online test will be acepted. Thoose who did not fill in more than one test till the deadlines, must fill in a test on the last week of the semester, which contains the whole practical material. The succesfull solution of that test is the prerequisit of acceptance of the semester, consequently, to admit the student to exam.

2. Group assignment
The Department uses the official group assignment provided by the Student’s Secretariat. You can attend the lab with the group you are registered in only. Due to efficiency and size of the groups it is not possible to attend any additional lab (including labs of different courses/years).
A permanent change to assignment may be requested but has to be approved by both the Department and the Secretariat.
Upon preliminary request the student might be allowed to switch exceptionally to a group other than registered in. Such a request, however, must be sent to the effected tutor at the latest one working day before the practical, until 12 pm (noon). Such a request should affect ONE practical only and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

3. Contact person:
Mr. András BERSÉNYI assistant professor (Building J. 3rd floor, room 309; Phone: +361 478 4291 or from inside the University phone extension: 8643; e-mail: [Click to see email]). Should you have questions feel free to contact him. You are kindly requested NOT to address the head-of-department or his secretary with teaching-related issues, unless you did not receive statisfactory answers to your inquiries by your contact person.

4. The “Animal Nutrition 1” exam
4.1. Exam period: 25 May-2 July 2021.

4.2. Prerequisites of the “Animal Nutrition 1” exam
Acceptation of the semester: absences above 3 missed lectures are certified. Practicals: no more than 4 missed practicals, successful solution of all practical test (even thoose of the missed practicals).

4.3. Possible forms of the “Animal Nutrition 1” exam
4.3.1. Written exam (test)
There are only two written exam possibilities (test) within the whole exam period. The date of these will be determined according to the agreement with the students’ representative.
Related to the two written test please note the followings.
Thoose who could not pass the first written test have another possibility for repeating the test at the 2nd given date.
Thoose wo did not take part on the written exam announced for the first date, will loose one written exam possibility. It means that they can take part on the test at the 2nd given date only. Would that be unsuccessful only oral exams can be done afterwards.

Plagiarism and cheating are a violation of the University’s academic regulations and are subject to disciplinary action. Students who fail to credit properly ideas or materials taken from another commit plagiarism. Putting your name on a piece of work – any part of which
is not yours – constitute plagiarism, unless that piece is clearly marked and the work from which you have borrowed is fully identified.
Cheating during an exam includes but is not limited to e.g. peaking at other’s exam, using non-permissible electronic devices or assistance. If you are caught in a dishonest act during the course of an examination you will be reported to the Secretariat of International Study Programs.
Students found guilty of cheating will receive a failing grade on that exam and will be subject to further disciplinary action. Penalties – even the dismissal from the school – may be imposed at the discretion of the relevant authorities.

4.5. Preparation for the “Animal Nutrition 1” exam
There are no prescribed textbooks. Any exam in “Animal Nutrition 1” will be based on the information given during lectures, and practicals. For preparations first of all your own notes, and the handouts of lectures and practicals are recommended. For further reading see the books listed below.
