Additional information:

Attendance at auditorium exercises is mandatory. After the absence student is obliged to attend missed classes with another group or perform additional studies in writing on a topic related to the abandoned classes. Students are allowed to approach a final exam of auditorium exercises three times . A positive final grade can be corrected in specified circumstances. Attendance at lectures is recommended and may be rewarded.
