The credit system has become widely used in European countries in the last decade as a result of the creation of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Each course is awarded a corresponding credit. According to the common pan-European system of credit transfer and accumulation, the full student workload in one academic year of distance learning is estimated at 48 ECTS credits, and the total amount of total study credits in 5 years is estimated at 240 ECTS credits. It is intended to facilitate the evaluation of the educational results achieved by students in the European Higher Education Area, mutual recognition and transfer from one university to another.

Credits are defined for all courses of the educational program, which reflect the full educational load of the classroom, extracurricular and independent work presented to the student. The student earns the defined credit if he / she successfully completes the relevant course and ensures a positive assessment threshold.

Credit does not replace numerical assessment, and the number of credits earned is not determined by the digits received. There is no interaction between credit rating systems. The credit system is a system of organization of the educational process, registration (evaluation) of the results of learning through academic credits, accumulation and transfer, where the corresponding qualification degree is awarded after obtaining the necessary content of credits defined by the educational program.

l  To successfully complete a semester, academic year, or full-time program, a student must earn the required number of credits required by the curriculum.

• Credits are awarded to all components of the curriculum to be assessed: courses, experience, graduation work, etc.

The ECTS credit is equivalent to a 30-hour (classroom, extracurricular: independent) study load. The annual educational process is organized into two semesters, autumn and spring. The maximum weekly full-time student workload is 45 hours (including self-study), equivalent to 1.5 academic credits.

Under the unified system, according to the relevant standards, elective courses in general and professional subjects can be introduced for students of all specialties.




The main feature of the credit system for calculating learning outcomes is that the field of assessment also includes students' individual work. Therefore, the evaluation of the results of oral answers and practical exercises during the classroom, individual, written, seminars is carried out according to the same principles. In accordance with the requirements of the credit system, the MGU uses a multi-factor system of assessment of students' knowledge. Students are assessed on a 20-point scale, with a passing threshold of 8. Students also do individual work for the courses that end with the exam. Individual work is a component of assessment that, if not submitted and / or defended, does not restrict a student's right to take the exam.


l   During the first week of the lessons, the lecturer is obliged to present to the students the subject program of the given course, the knowledge tests questionnaire, the assessment criteria, the procedure of conducting the knowledge tests.

l  An additional test is organized for a student who does not take the knowledge test for a good reason.

l   Reexamination is organized on the basis of the student's final grade, when it is equal to D e in the case of an examination or U e in the case of a test, ie the numerical value is less than 8 (without rounding).

l  The first and second reexaminations of the courses ending with the exam are evaluated with 0-12 points, the first-second reexaminations of the courses ending with the exam are evaluated with 0-20 points.

l   After summarizing the results of the semester, before the reexamination, the Dean's Office prepares the list of students allowed for reexamination, making it available to the students in the chairs.

l   The student participating in the  reexamination, in accordance with the approved schedule, may retake the course for the second time, if he / she has not passed the positive assessment threshold for the first time. In this case, the result of the first liquidation is not added to the calculated estimate.

l   It is forbidden to retake the positive evaluation received during the study.

l   During re-assignments, the individual work factor rating is maintained; and in order to receive a positive rating, it is necessary to obtain the missing passing threshold point from the 12 re-assignment points.

l   The final grade obtained after the reexamination is transferred to the Diploma Supplement.
