Verification of the students' level of knowledge for any curriculum subject can be concluded with exam (E), colloquium (C) or project (P) grades or with a "Passed"/ "Failed" qualification.
The students' evaluation is expressed in grades, qualifications and credits, in accordance with the methodology of the study programme organization in the system of credit transfer (SCT).
Credits are numerical values assigned to the disciplines of study and are fully obtained by the students if they pass the verification forms at these subjects, by obtaining the minimum grade of 5 (five) or a "Passed" qualification. An academic year is usually assigned a number of credits almost equally distributed to the two semesters.
Any student's activity during the semester (seminar, practical works) shall be assessed and evaluated by the discipline coordinator through the final grade, according to the criteria established by each Chair and brought to the students' knowledge by the course coordinator, at the beginning of each semester.
During the semesters, colloquia end before the examination session. The grade at the colloquium is obtained according to the evaluation of every student's activity during the semester and, if necessary, according to the results of one or two test papers, given on the basis of a programme coordinated by the board of the academic institution.
Failed colloquia shall be reset according to the regime of failed exams, with the acceptance of the already passed parts.
The exams are written, oral or written and oral, each form being proposed by the Chair and approved by the Council of the Faculty. The exam dates shall be approved by the board of the academic institution, further to a proposal made by the students and agreed upon by the discipline coordinator.
Examinations are held before the teacher who has taught that discipline, assisted by the teacher who has coordinated the seminars or the practical works with that group. In well justified cases, on request, the board of the academic institution may consent to the replacement of the examiner with another teacher proposed by the Chair. The student who, for objective reasons, cannot sit the scheduled exam with his/her group may apply to the dean for a re-sit with another group.
The winter session examinations and the 1st semester colloquia shall be re-scheduled, only once, during the summer and autumn sessions. The summer session examinations and the 2nd semester colloquia shall be re-scheduled twice during the autumn session. Projects and design syntheses shall not be scheduled for a specific date during the autumn session; this date is established by the dean's office.
Exams are sat only during the three scheduled sessions of the academic year (winter, summer, autumn). During the academic year, two free of charge examinations are scheduled for each discipline (activity); for all the other examinations, students must pay a fee, established by the Senate of TUCEB. Sitting the exams in the autumn session of the academic year is conditioned by obtaining a minimum number of credits in the winter and summer sessions, according to the methodology of study programme organisation, in the system of credit transfer (SCT).
With the approval of the institution, on scheduled dates during the autumn session, students may also sit the exams for improving/upgrading the grades obtained at the examinations scheduled during the winter and summer sessions, the made-up exams included.
The students who try to pass the exams through fraud shall be declared deferred for the current academic year, without the right to have their grades and credits for the promoted disciplines recognized. The deferred year is included in the normal duration of study.
Practice is carried out according to the curriculum and completed by a colloquium, held by the practice guidance teachers. In exceptional cases, on the proposal of the board of the academic institution, the Academic Board may approve the settlement of practice activity before the beginning of the summer session of the next academic year, except the cases in which practice activity is a compulsory discipline, required for promotion.
Students shall submit their student card to the examiner, at every exam and colloquium, and the examiner shall write down in it the grade obtained by the student, at his/her each presentation. In exceptional cases, the student may submit a certificate issued by the secretariat of the academic institution, together with an ID.
For every subject examination, the discipline coordinator shall take the discipline roll from the secretariat of the academic institution and shall write down in it the grades obtained by the examined students. Once written down in the roll, a grade can be modified only in well justified cases and only with the approval of the board of the academic institution.
Made-up exams for students admitted to continue their academic studies in the 1st cycle - Bachelor's degree - are held during special sessions organized by the dean's offices and shall be completed in two academic years, at the utmost.
The examination regime of these students is the same as that of the current series.
