Assessments is a way of gathering information from various sources so that we can develop a strong understanding of what students actually know, what they require, how they can use their knowledge and what are their past experiences of academic career.


KYIV MEDICAL UNIVERSITY OF UAFM has strong assessment techniques to improve the quality of learning capability of students. Assessment of students helps a lot in tracking their performance in their academic career. The consequences of assessments acts as a guide for the university that how the students are learning and progressing in their academic session. We have two assessment techniques for checking the progress of students Formative assessments and Summative assessments. Our formative assessments act as a feedback sources for teaching and learning while in summative assessments we have conclusion on what a student learned during a set of learning activities. On this basis we have following specification on assessments:-


  • Regular monitoring of practical, seminars and classes. The university ensures for the successful implementation of practical skills for the current class topic and practical laboratory works.
  • Regular monitoring of practical, seminars and classes. The university ensures for the successful implementation of practical skills for the current class topic and practical laboratory works.
  • The maximum amount of scores a student can obtain for each module is 200 in which 120 scores are from regular test set and 80 scores from final module control. The final module control will be considered passed only if the student has obtained a minimum of 50 scores.
  • The final marks on disciplines are awarded only to those students who have successfully passed in all module controls.
  • The amount of aggregate scores, which a student receives on a particular discipline, is determined as the arithmetic mean of scores for all module controls on that particular discipline (the sum of scores for all modules is divided by amount of modules on discipline).

After the completion of the academic coursework, all the batches enrolled under various specialties namely Pediatrics, medical preventive care, General Medicine are entitled to the final grade which is awarded according to the ECTS scale at the dean’s office. The ranking is done for only those students who have successfully completed their discipline.


The provision of ranking differs when it comes to the ranking of those students who have received FX and X. These students are excluded from the final ranking i.e. Final ranking does not include students getting the lowest grades(X and FX).The final grade to these students will remain E even after they complete the module in their re-attempt.


ECTS mark Number of students, awarded with the mark


  • Best 10% from students
  • Next 25% from students
  • Next 30% from students
  • Next 25% from students
  • Last 10% from students

X and FX marks are given to those students who fail to qualify even one module in a discipline even after the curriculum is successfully completed.


FX marks is given to those students who have received the least qualifying/passing scores for the current academic activity but were not able to clear the final module control. These students are provided with a chance to clear the final module control in the second attempt as per the department approved schedule during winter or summer breaks (2 weeks after the completion of the semester or academic year). The maximum no. of attempts to clear the final module control is 2 after failing the first attempt.


While F marks are given to those students who, instead of attending all class hours in a module failed to obtain the minimum passing scores for that very academic activity and were not entitled for the assessment in final module control.

From 170 up to 200 scores 5
From 140 up to 169 scores 4
From 139 up to minimum amount of scores 3
Below minimum amount of scores 2

With the consent and approval from pro-rector of academic and scientific work, a student may get an opportunity to improve his/her marks in a discipline by successfully clearing the final module for the second time (re-attempt not more than three times for the entire academic sessions).
