Prerequisites for admission
To take the Neurobiology, Human Behaviour and Clinical Neuroscience exam, students must have already passed all the exams of the first and second year (Fundamentals of Basic Sciences, Cells, Molecules and Genes 1 and 2, Human Body, Functions and Mechanisms of Diseases).
Students must recall the anatomy and physiology of the central and peripheral nervous system.
Assessment methods and Criteria
Student assessment is based on a combination of written and oral examinations.
The written exam is a multiple choice test focused on the topics of all the modules but Neurology and Mental Health (5 questions for each module, each one with one correct answer). Only students who successfully pass the written test for all the discipline (3/5 correct questions) are allowed to take the oral examination of Neurology and Mental Health. Students may also access to the oral examination if they fail to pass one discipline as far as at least 40% of the response were correct in that discipline or if they pass at least 80% of all proposed tests. A passed written examination remains valid for the entire academic year. The oral of Neurology and Mental health can be taken separately but within the same academic year. The written test and oral examination will cover all the topics covered by the seminars.
The final mark is the average of the marks obtained through the oral examinations weighted by the number of credits of the two disciplines. The exam is deemed to be passed successfully if the final grade is equal to or higher than 18/30. In the event of a full grade (30/30) honors (lode) may be granted with the consent of all the professors.
Registration to the exam through SIFA is mandatory.
