Control measures

At credit modular system for organization of academic process there are no examination sessions and the following kinds of control are anticipated:

  • Current control at each practical, seminar classes, during which 100% from students are to be asked. Each topic of classes also anticipates the fulfillment of control for practical skills through check of possibility of the student to use the acquired knowledge while solving the practical classes, performing laboratory works. The individual tasks, received by the student at department and his/her independent work beyond class hours, are subject to control.
  • Final modular control, which is held when the study of module on academic discipline is finished, includes the control for theoretical and practical training. Only the students, who obtained the necessary minimum of scores during current study, are admitted to the final modular control.

The maximum amount of scores, which student can obtain at study of each module, is 200, including for current academic activity – 120 scores, due to the results from final modular control – 80 scores. The final modular control is considered to be passed if the student obtained not less than 50 scores.

The mark on discipline is put only to students, who passed through all modules on discipline.

The amount of scores, which the student received on discipline, is determined as the arithmetical mean of scores for all modules on discipline (the sum of scores for all modules is divided by amount of modules on discipline).

The scores on disciplines are independently converted both into ECTS scale (in dean’s offices) and 4-grade scale (at departments. The scores of ETCS scale are not converted into 4-grade scale and vice versa.

After learning the academic discipline all students in this course, who study due to one specialty – “medical business”, “pediatrics”, “medical preventive care”, are ranked at dean’s offices due to ECTS scale, awarding the marks “A”, “B”, « C » , « D » , « E » . Only the students, who successfully finished studying the discipline, are ranked.

The students, who received FX and X, are not included into the list of students, being ranked, even after passing through the module for the second time. Such students automatically receive E mark after passing through the module for the second time.

FX and F marks on discipline are put to the students, who failed to pass through even one module on discipline after finish of its learning.

FX mark is put to the students, who obtained the minimum amount of scores for current academic activity but failed to pass through final modular control. This category of students is entitled to pass through final modular control for the second time according to approved schedule during winter or summer holidays for two weeks after finish of the semester or academic year. Passing through final modular control for the second time is allowed for not more than two times.

F mark is put to the students, who attended all class hours in the module but failed to obtain minimum amount of scores for current academic activity and were not admitted to final modular control. This category of students is entitled to study the module for the second time.

Scores on discipline

Mark due to 4-grade scale

From 170 up to 200 scores


From 140 up to 169 scores


From 139 up to minimum amount of scores, which the student shall obtain


Below minimum amount of scores, which the student shall obtain


With the permission from pro-rector on scientific and teaching work, the student may increase the mark on discipline by passing through final modular control for the second time (not more than three times for the whole period of study).

The control measures at traditional system of study include current and final control:

  • Current control is carried out during practical, laboratory, seminar classes and anticipates the check for level of knowledge, skills and capabilities in average 100% from students during each class.
  • Final control includes semester control and state certification of the student.

Semester control is carried out in the form of semester exam, differentiated credit or a credit on particular academic discipline after studying its full extent, specified by curriculum and syllabus. All forms of semester control are carried out in the deadline, set by the curriculum and provided by training process schedule.

Semester examinations are taken by students during examination period on a schedule that are brought to their attention not later than one month prior to the session.

Semester differentiated credits and credits are passed at the last practice training lesson of the discipline, after finishing of training practice.

State certification of graduates is conducted to determine whether the quality of higher medical (pharmaceutical) education correspond to state standards of higher education after graduation from appropriate educational and professional programs. State certification is conducting by the State Examination Board (at the stage of pre-graduate training) and State certification commission (at the stage of post-graduate training in the internship). The state commissions are formed by higher education institution. Head of the State commissions are approved by order of Ministry of Health Care of Ukraine at proposals of higher education institutions.

Standard form for state certification of graduates from higher medical (pharmaceutical) educational institutions and faculties of universities is standardized test and practically-oriented state exams.

Standardized state test examination is an integrated licensing examination, which includes test examinations Step 1 and Step-2 with accordance to the educational qualification’s requirements of training specialists. This state test examination measures the performance as the basic components of professional’s quality in complete higher education in the medical and pharmaceutical direction and sets the minimum level of professional competence, required for awarding professional qualification of relevant educational and qualification level.

Practically-oriented state examinations assess the quality of solutions for common problems of the specialist’s work under conditions that approximate to the profession. The procedure of practically-oriented state examinations is established by the higher educational institution.

The number and description of practically-oriented state graduation exams depends on the area and the specialty for which the student used to study.

For the students, who study due to the traditional system, the results from exams and differentiated credits are assessed pursuant to 4-grade scale (“excellent”, “good”, “satisfactory”, “unsatisfactory”), and credits – due to 2-grade scale (“passed”, “failed”) and are introduced into the examination sheet, student’s book, academic card of student.

The students, who during the session received not more than two unsatisfactory marks, are allowed to pass through the failed exams for the second time until start of next semester. It is allowed to pass through exams for the second time not more than two times on each discipline: one time to the teacher, the second time to the commission.

The students, who failed to come to the exams without valid reasons, are considered as such ones, who received unsatisfactory mark.
