Credit, colloquium, exam

The way of completing the subject is a form of the final examination of the knowledge.
Depending on the way you finish, you also get the resulting number of credits for the subject. The basic number of credits is added according to the ending:

  • Credit +0 credits
  • Colloquium +1 credit
  • Exam +2 credits

In order to get some credits for the subject, you must first finish it. For some subjects, however, the student can choose the form of termination.


Credit is the easiest form of completion of the subject. To obtain it, for example, a certain number of points from the continuous tests, the continuous performance of the tasks and, in the case of some subjects, the active participation in the teaching.

Examples of courses completed by credit: Basics of professional style or English online .


Colloquium is a less demanding test. Previously, the colloquium was an oral affair, but it does not apply to the FI, even if the colloquium ends, an essay, project, analysis, test, but also a teacher interview or test can be awaiting you in the form of an interesting task.

Examples of colloquially finished subjects: English I - Seminar or Mathematics and programming .


Exam is less demanding completion of the subject. At FI, most written examinations and lectures are widely used by machine-tested tests. You will also find open questions about where to answer. Sometimes it's an add-on to test questions with options, sometimes it's a whole exam of the open questions. Sometimes it is expected to answer a few lines, sometimes to fill two A4 or to create charts, for example. And from at least one mathematics (MB10 {1,2,3,4}), you will have an oral exam.

Some subjects completed by the exam require completion of the credit before you are admitted to the examination at all. Often, it is an attempt to motivate students to work continuously during the semester and to verify tasks or ongoing or semi-semester tests.

The conditions for any termination are always clearly specified at the beginning of the semester.
