International students who have gained admission to the program and students who completed their high school education outside the TRNC or the Republic of Turkey in a language other than Turkish are required to demonstrate successful performance from the Turkish Proficiency Test by the end of the 3rd year. Those who fail this exam cannot start their studies in Phase II.  

Compulsory Attendance

14.  

(1)

Attendance to the courses appearing in the program (i.e., Subject Committees, Introduction to Clinical Practice Programs, Internship Programs and Non-committee Courses) is compulsory.

 

 

(2)

In Phase I, attending at least 70% of the theory courses and 80% of the practice hours belonging to each applied course is compulsory.

 

 

(3)

In Phase I, subject committee modules, laboratory practices and Introduction to Clinical Practice programs are considered as practice courses. In Phase I, those students failing to attend minimum 80% of the total course hours per course are not allowed to take the examination of the relevant practice course. Similarly, students who do not attend minimum 70% of the total theory course hours appearing in the subject committee are not admitted to the subject committee examination and/or re-sit examination.

 

 

(4)

Students who become unsuccessful from subject committee due to violating the compulsory attendance rules receive an “NG” grade.

 

 

(5)

Students who have received an “NG” grade from the Subject Committee or Introduction to Clinical Practice Program or the Internship Program are not admitted to the resit examination an d has to repeat this program.

 

 

(6)

In Phase 1, students who have failed to attend more than 20% of the total course hours belonging to each program carried out within the framework of the Introduction to Clinical Practice Program or the laboratory application carried out within the framework of Subject Committee branches are entitled for a make-up, on the condition that their excuses are found valid by the Dean’s Office. At the end of the make-up, students sit for the application examination.

 

 

IV. ASSESSMENT-EVALUATION AND GRADUATION

Assessment and Evaluation System

15.  

(1)

In the program, a variety of assessment and evaluation methods are employed for each area of learning (e.g., knowledge, skills, attitude, proficiency). Evaluation and assessment methods for each course and their application are determined by the relevant lecturer/education board and approved by the Faculty Board.

 

 

(2)

Within the integrated education system implemented in the program, a single grade out of 100 is obtained for each Subject Committee by using all types of assessment outcomes obtained during and at the end of the Subject Committee, Introduction to Clinical Practice Program and Internship Program processes. The calculated grade which demonstrates a student’s success rate from the relevant subject committee is used in the relative evaluation system.

 

 

(3)

A minimum of one mid-term examination is required in the evaluation of the term/in-term performance.

 

 

(4)

Term/in-term evaluation tools (e.g.mid-term, homework, project, laboratory, practice and others) employed are evaluated out of 100. In the grading of these evaluation tools, other methods of the evaluation of performance (e.g., Relative Evaluation System) are not used and no letter grades are assigned. Assignment of the letter grades take place following the completion of the grading of all evaluation tools including mid-term and final examinations.

 

 

(5)

Contributions (weight) of the mid-term, homework, applications and other work to the overall success score are specified in the course description. Percentages of the assessment components are announced at the beginning of the academic year and are taken into consideration in the evaluation of the relevant course.

Letter Grades

16.  

In addition to the letter grades specified in Eastern Mediterranean University Education, Examinations and Success Regulations, letter grades specified in Table 1 are also used in the program.

 

 

Principles for the letter grades specified in Table 1 are as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

Letter grades “AA”, “BA”, “BB”, “CB” and “CC” are considered as successful and satisfactory performance, “DC” and “DD” as conditional pass and  “FD”, “FF” and “FG” are assigned for unsatisfactory performance.  

 

 

 

(b)

MZ and DE denote letter grades assigned for undetermined performance.

 

 

 

(c)

FG (Unattended mid-term/final examination; Fail) refers to the letter grade assigned to a student who did not sit for the mid-term/final examination of the relevant course despite the fact that s/he has the right to take the exam after having fulfilled attendance and application requirements. A student who has been assigned an ‘FG’ grade is considered unsuccessful from the relevant course. This letter grade is considered and calculated as an “FF” grade in the computation of total credit value a student has to complete during his/her designated period of study as well as the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and Annual Grade Point Average (AGPA). In the calculation of the CGPA and AGPA, grade coefficient of the relevant course is considered as 0,00.

 

 

 

(d)

MZ (Excused) refers to the letter grade assigned to a student who could not sit for the mid-term/final examination of a specific course due to reasons specified in the relevant regulations, despite the fact that s/he has earned the right to do so, and whose excuse has been found valid by the Faculty Board. Since the success rate of such students could not be determined, MZ grade is not included in the calculation of the total credit value and CGPA/AGPA. This grade is later replaced with the grade obtained from the make-up examination.

 

 

 

(e)

DE (Continuing): During the registration renewal process, DE grade is directly assigned for registered courses as the first grade.  DE grade is valid throughout the term/academic year until the relevant lecturer delivering the course assigns a letter grade. This grade is not included in the calculation of total credit value and CGPA/AGPA.

Relative Evaluation System

(RES)

17.  

(1)

Relative Evaluation System (RES) is the appraisal of the success of a student with a relational way with the success rates of other students in the class. In RES, assigning scores out of 100 to each individual student is not the focus. Instead, the most important aim is the place which student takes with regard to other students in the class considering his/her performance.

 

 

(2)

In the Relative Evaluation System, statistical methods are employed in determining a student’s standing with regards to the class average.  In determining each student’s variance from the class average, standard deviation of the scores of the relevant class is obtained.

 

 

(3)

For each subject committee, each cut-off point to be taken into consideration in the relative evaluation (REIL) is determined upon the recommendation of the Faculty Board and the approval of the Senate. Upon the recommendation of the Faculty Board and the approval of the Senate, REIL may change in line with new circumstances that may arise throughout years. However, REIL may not be less than 20.

 

 

(4)

Depending on the number of students who have fulfilled attendance requirements specified for the course, who have taken mid-term/final examination and, last but not least, who have exceeded the REIL, three distinct ways are employed in the conversion of the success score to the letter grade in the Relative Evaluation System..

 

 

 

I.

In situations where the number of students fulfilling REIL conditions is 30 and above, the following steps are followed in the relative evaluation:

 

 

 

 

i) Class average (mean) is calculated by using the scores (out of 100) obtained by students and in accordance with the formula below and by rounding up to two decimals after the decimal point. When rounding up, if the third digit after the decimal point is less than 5, the calculation is done without changing the second digit; if the third digit is 5 or more than 5, the numerical value of the second digit after the decimal point is increased one.

Class average (mean) is the arithmetic average of the scores of the students who earned the right to be included in the relative evaluation of the class. The mean is calculated according to the following formula.

 = Mean of scores

= Student’s score

N = Number of students included in the calculation

 

 

 

 

 

ii) Standard deviation is calculated in accordance with the equation below and, as mentioned before, rounded up to two decimals after the decimal point. The standard deviation is a statistical measure showing the distribution of scores around the mean.

s = Standart deviation

= Student’s score

N= Number of students included in the calculation.

 

 

 

 

 

iii)  T-score of each student is calculated according to the equation below and by rounding up to two decimals after the decimal point.

 

 = Class average

= Student’s score

s = Standart deviation

 

 

 

 

 

iv) As specified in Table 2, each student’s letter grade obtained in accordance with the T-score is determined with a consideration of the T-score minimum limits corresponding with the class success level. The following steps are taken accordingly:

 

 

 

 

a)     Specification of the Class Success Rate; Success rate of a class is determined in accordance with the range the class average falls into in Table 2. In Table 2, success rate of a class has been specified as 8 different categories from “Outstanding” to “Unsatisfactory”.

 

 

 

 

b)    In line with Table 2, specific values corresponding with the class success rate are determined. Taking into the relevant T-score obtained, each student is assigned a letter grade in accordance with the relevant T-score range.

 

 

 

II.

In situations where the number of students meeting the REIL condition is between 10 and 29, the following steps are followed in carrying out relative evaluation.

 

 

 

 

i)  As specified in Article 17 (4), class average is obtained by dividing the sum of student scores into the number of students.

 

 

 

 

ii) In Table 3, the range corresponding with the class average is specified and the success rate of the class is determined. Suggested student percentages to be assigned the corresponding relative grade are specified in Table 3.

 

 

 

 

iii) Depending on their grades, students are ranked from the highest to the lowest. The number of students falling into each letter grade category is calculated with a consideration of the percentage rate of each relative grade in Table 3. In this way, students in the list are assigned relative grades starting from the letter grade “AA”.

 

 

 

 

iv) In situations where the sum of student numbers obtained through the percentages corresponding with the letter grades is not equal to the total number of students in the relevant class, the calculation is made in favour of the students.

 

 

 

III.

If the number of students meeting the REIL conditions are less than 10,  the Semester Coordinator assigns letter grades by choosing a suitable method.

 

 

(5)

In a class, regardless of the number of students meeting the REIL condition, students with same scores are assigned the same letter grade.

 

 

(6)

Regarding students who sit for additional exams or make-up examinations, a comparative method is applied. Through this method, the score obtained from the aforementioned exams and the success score calculated out of 100 are compared with the most recent success scores of the relevant course obtained through half term/annual evaluation and converted to the letter grade which has the closest value to the success score. In comparing success scores, if the obtained score becomes equally close to two grades, the grade calculation is held in favour of the student.

 

 

(7)

Letter grade “NG” is assigned to students who do not meet the attendance requirements. A student who fails to sit for the mid-term/final examination although s/he has earned the right to do so and despite the fact that attendance and application conditions have been fulfilled is assigned an “FG” grade. Students in both conditions are excluded from relative evaluation calculations.

 

 

(8)

Success scores of students who meet the attendance requirements are calculated. Those students whose success scores are below the REIL are directly assigned an “FF” grade. Scores of such students are excluded from the relative evaluation calculations.

 

 

(9)

Students who have obtained scores lower than the REIL in a Subject Committee are considered unsuccessful in the aforementioned program and take the resit exam with a consideration of his/her compliance with the attendance conditions. Students who fail the resit examination are required to repeat the relevant Subject Committee.

 

18.  

(1)

In the calculation of the letter grades of the Subject Committee courses falling within Phase I, Relative Evaluation System is employed.

 

 

(2)

In the calculation of the letter grades for “Introduction to Clinical Practice” courses, Direct Conversion System specified in Table 4 is used.

 

 

(3)

Non-committee courses and elective courses are evaluated by the lecturer delivering the course. Method of evaluation is specified in the course description document announced/distributed at the beginning of the relevant semester.

Grade Coefficients

19.  

(1)

Annual Grade Point Average (AGPA): Annual Grade Point Average (AGPA), which is out of 4.00, is a calculation method using the letter grades obtained from all courses taken within an academic year (Subject Committees, KUG programs, non-committee courses, elective courses, internship practice etc….), the coefficient corresponding with the grade received and course credit-hour. The number of credits obtained from a course is calculated by multiplying the credit-hour value of the course with the coefficient of the obtained letter grade.

Annual Grade Point Average (AGPA) is computed by dividing the total credits received from all courses the student has completed during the specific year by the sum of the credit hours of these courses.

 

 

(2)

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is computed by dividing the total credits received from all courses the student has completed since joining the program by the sum of the credit hours of these courses. In cases when a course is repeated, the most recent grade is included in the CGPA computations.

 

 

(3)

Integrity of each academic year within the 3-year basic medicine education to be carried out within the Faculty is fundamental. Hence, a student’s success in courses and promotion to a higher class takes place through the calculation of the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).

 

 

(4)

In Phase I, in order for a student to be considered successful from the course program and take courses from the upcoming year’s program, all courses taken in the aforementioned program should be completed and the calculated CGPA should be 1.80 and above. In Phase I, a student whose CGPA is 1.80 and above is entitled to take courses, including resit examinations, appearing in the upcoming program. Students whose CGPA’s are below 1.80 are put on a probational status and has to repeat courses or continue with the incomplete courses appearing in the program of the current year of study.   

 

 

(5)

In order for students to successfully complete Phase I and start their studies in Phase II, they should demonstrate successful performance in the Introduction to Clinical Practice Program in Phase I and, at the same time, should possess a minimum CGPA of 2.00. However, those students who become unsuccessful from a maximum of 2 courses, excluding courses falling within the Introduction to Clinical Practice Program, and who, at the same time, possess a Phase I CGPA of 2.00 or above may commence their studies in Phase II.

 

 

(6)

In order for students to earn the right to receive an associate degree at the end of Phase I, they should be successful from all courses taken during the aforementioned term and should possess a minimum CGPA of 2.00.

Resit Examination and Attending Classes

20.  

(1)

Excluding students who have been assigned an “NG” grade due to attendance problems, those students who have been assigned “FD”, “FF” and “FG” grades are entitled to take the resit exams of all failed courses during the relevant academic year.

 

 

(2)

In order to increase their CGPA, students on probational status may sit for the resit examinations of programs with previously obtained grades of “DC” and “DD”. In this case, the most recent grade obtained is valid and will be used in the calculation of CGPA.

 

 

(3)

Students who have become unsuccessful upon obtaining “FD”, “FF” and “FG” grades from the resit examinations are required to repeat these courses.

 

 

(4)

Attendance requirement is not sought regarding those students repeating subject committees due to reasons other than poor attendance.
