During the course of the first study year, the course activities are evaluated in accordance with the reglementation of the decree relating to the studies in Medecine and Dentistry.
Principles, particularly relating to the selected classification of students :
- The 1st year study cycle in Medecine and in Dental Sciences is structured in two parts : the first part is the so-called "orientation," selection part, comprising 60 credits ; the second part comprises 120 credits.
- Access to the second part is subject to passing the orientation or selection tests.
- The selection classifications carried out at the end of these tests include 80% (55 credits) of academic tests and 20% (5 credits) of specific "transversal" tests aimed at evaluating the student's capacities to practise the profession of doctor or dentist (capacities to understand, summarise and communicate information, successfully apply his knowledge to solve situations necessitating transdisciplinary knowledge and know-how).
- During the course of the first study year, the results obtained during the various oral exercises organised during the year as well as the January exam session, will only serve as an indication and will not give rise to any results valid for the ensuing sessions of the study year.
- An intial selection classification list will be established at the end of the June session and, in the case of further places available, a second classification list will be established at the end of the September session.
- Successfully classified candidates will receive a special attestation entitling them access to the 2nd part of the 1st cycle.
- Students who obtain the 60 credits during the course of the first year but who do not obtain the attestation may be admitted to the second year of studies of a cycle which is not structured in two parts (Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacy, Biology, etc.). They may likewise recommence their study year once without being able to benefit from any marks already obtained.
- Students who have not managed to attain the 60 credits, may recommence their year once without being able to benefit from any marks already obtained ; they may also reorient their studies, thus benefitting from any marks (even credits) already obtained, towards another cursus whose 1st cycle is not structured in two parts (Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacy, Biology, etc.).
Evaluation procedures as from the second year of studies
The course content and activities are evaluated in accordance with the prevailing rules and regulations of the University (c.f. exam reglementation). Exams are organised at the end of the session periods (January, June) as well as in September. The practical tasks and work experience are likewise evaluated in the form of ongoing evaluation.
