DEGREE IN BIOLOGY


Subject context 2015-16

Biochemistry I is a basic training course of the Degree in Biology which has a main aim that is to provide a general view of the most important biomolecules found in nature, as well as to establish the chemical, molecular and genetic basis of the biological processes. Through the history of this scientific discipline, the biochemists have worked to reveal the chemical and physical principles that support the biological processes. Therefore, Biochemistry establishes the knowledge basis to be able to identify these processes. This course provides the basis both for the comprehension of other courses of the Degree as well as for the development of the future career of the graduate in Biology.

Evaluation Tools and Criteria 2015-16

Laboratory practical exercises (Practical Work) are mandatory.
In case of, after the accomplishment of the proposed activities in the continuous assessment and the final test, the obtained qualification was not enough to overcome the course with 50 % of the total, a new theoretical test will be programmed in the extraordinary examinations (period) of July, adding, in this case, the marks obtained in the continuous assessment. There will not be the possibility of resit the continuous assessment, except in the case of failing the reports of the laboratory work.
In addition, the weighting will be the same that in the ordinary exams of June.
None of the qualifications obtained in any of the activities of the continuous assessment will be kept for the next academic year, except the laboratory practical exercises, if passed. Moreover, students who have not passed the laboratory practical exercises the previous year, are not required to carry-out them again in the laboratory, but they must do the test.
For students applying for Extraordinary Examination to Finish Studies, the continuous assessment will be kept of the course immediately prior, and a new theoretical test will be programmed with the same characteristics as the final test, both theory and practice. The weights of continuous assessment activities and the final test will be the same as ordinary course.

TypeCriteriaDescriptionWeighting
ACTIVITIES OF EVALUATION DURING THE SEMESTER

Short questions final exam. A minimum mark of 4 is required to pass the practices. In the case of not having achieved this mark, there will be a theoretical test of practical exercises in the extraordinary examinations in July.

In the ARA group the script of practical exercises will be handed in English.

Exam25
ACTIVITIES OF EVALUATION DURING THE SEMESTER

Short and objective written tests will be done in theory class. Similarly, in the group tutorials small controls could be done. The duration of control will vary depending on the number of questions, and it will be communicated in the Campus Virtual in advance. The weighting of this section will be the arithmetic mean of all the proposed tests.

For the ARA group, the test will be in English.

Written theoretical-practical tests25
FINAL TEST

Good command of the theoretical knowledge of the course. Test will consist on questions (60%) and short response questions (arguing or numerical resolution) (40%). A minimum mark of 4 is required to mediate the continuous assessment. Marks between 4 and 5 could be considered in the extraordinary examinations in July.
For the ARA group, test questions will be in English.
