primary meeting, conference question

I saw two same courses but with different class type.
but if I attend the primary meeting, I must attend the conference one.

is primary meeting course and conference course (same course name) considered as one?

if so, there are exams only in primary meeting classes?

    Conferences are supplementary to primary meetings. So, you will presumably go to class at the scheduled time, and the conference is an extra meeting, usually with a TA, where you go over stuff in more detail, go over homework, etc. Sometimes these are mandatory, sometimes not, depending on the class. It all is included in the same course credit.
