Success and Exemption Students who fail to achieve 50% overall grade from the laboratory are considered to be unsuccessful from both the laboratory and the course. (No. 57, 18.4.2008 and 86, 12.10.2016). With the attendance of the laboratory (80%) and success (50%), the laboratory grade is graded. If the students who have achieved at least (70%) as a laboratory passing grade, repeat the course, the latest grade will be added to the average. Students who repeat the course and have laboratory exemptions are required to complete the laboratory exemption form in the first week of the semester and obtain approval for exemption from the department.
