The student’s supervisor should attend his/her student’s mid-term assessment but is not included in the examination committee. The assessment shall be held in public in the institute, and be completed before 15 June of the fourth semester for autumn enrolled students or before 15 December of the fourth semester for spring enrolled students. One credit will be awarded after passing evaluation of examination committee. The mid-term assessment should be implemented in accordance with the Provisional Regulations on the Graduate Student Mid-term Assessment of GSCAAS as applicable to both Chinese and international students.

The student who has not passed the inspection on original thesis research record will be given a “failure” in mid-term assessment. The student who failed in the assessment is required to retake after three months. If the student failed in the second time or refused to retake the assessment, he/she will be subject to dropping-out in accordance with relevant regulation.
