Lectures: 3 hours/week, lecture halls: Tormay and Hetzel.

 

According to the decision of the University Council (14 November, 2006) presence on the lectures is obligatory, and it will be constantly controlled. The acceptable number of uncertified absences is maximum 3 per semester. Above this level the Department of Animal Nutrition will refuse to recognise the semester and will not sign the student’s black book. Absences because of clinical practices or research activities 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.

 

Presence on the practicals is obligatory as well. One absence is acceptable without proof. In case of further absences, subjects of the practicals must be recited within 2 weeks at the lecturer of topic. If the number of missed practical hours exceeds the 30% of the total practical hours, the missed practicals are not allowed to recite, the student will not get the credit scores of the subject (Study Rules of the Faculty, 27. §). According to these for not more than 4 missed practicals will be accepted from which 3 must be recited.

On behalf of the Dept. Anim. Nutr. the contact person is Dr. András BERSÉNYI assistant professor (Building J. 3rd floor, room 309; phone: +361 478 4291 or (on the area of the university) phone extension: 8643; e-mail: bersenyi.andras@univet.hu).

Exam information

Exam topics and information

 

2. Prerequisites of the registration for the “Animal Nutrition 2” exam:

− successful “Animal Nutrition 1” exam,

− successful calculation test,

− accepted nutrition summer report.

If one of these exams is missing, it can be done within the exam period before the registration for the “Animal nutrition 2” exam.

Registration for the missing “Animal Nutrition 1” exam: via NEPTUN.

Registration for the missing calculation test: via e-mail at Dr. Bersényi (bersenyi.andras@univet.hu).

On a given exam day only one exam per student is allowed to be done (e.g. if somebody is missing both the “Animal Nutrition 1”, and the calculation test, she/he has to do first the ‘Animal Nutrition 1”, and on another exam day the calculation test. Only after that is allowed to do the registration for the “Animal Nutrition 2” exam.

 

3. Registration for the “Animal Nutrition 2” exam: via NEPTUN.

 

4. Change of the exam date or postponement of the exam: it is possible at least one day before the original exam date till 12 o’clock by signing of in the NEPTUN system.

If somebody does not appear on the exam without postponing it on time, she/he will lose one exam possibility. Registration for a new exam date can be done via NEPTUN according to the available spots. Departments are not allowed to register the students for the exams or to delete their registrations. Consequently, please do not contact the department with requests like this.

 

5. Exam days (“Animal Nutrition 2”)

Exam dates and the number of spots will be given via NEPTUN.

Attention! The 3 exam possibilities per student are valid for the whole exam period and not for the last week of exams. Consequently, on the last week − in case of a failure − we are not able to provide another exam possibility within the exam period.

Please take the exam registrations seriously, because no new spots can be provided instead of the postponed ones.

Before the registration you may contact the Hungarian class representative, because if they do not use all of their spots on a given day, English speaking students are allowed to use the rests and vice versa.

 

6. Place and onset of the “Animal Nutrition 2” exams: Rottenbiller Str., 50., at 8 am.

 

7. Exam process

The “Animal Nutrition 2” exam is made in oral form. The knowledge of feeds and the subject of “Animal Nutrition 1” are not the parts of the “Animal Nutrition 2” exam any more. According to that everybody gets 3 questions as follows.

1st question: one question from the group II/A.

2nd question: one question from the group II/B.

3rd question: one question from the group II/C.

 

8. Evaluation of the exam

For the successful exam the satisfactory level (60% = mark 2) must be reached from all questions. If this is the case, the final mark will be given according to the results of the different questions, by taking into account the results of the calculation test, and that of the summer report.
