CONDITIONS FOR ADMISSIONS
An applicant can obtain a maximum of 166 points for all parts of the entrance examination: a maximum of 100 points for the state examination and a maximum of 66 points for the school part of the examination. The students who will take part in the 1st round of the entrance examinations will be ranked according to the results of both parts of the examinations. Those students who have been ranked in the interval from the 1st place to the last place within our capacities for the 1st round of the admissions for the given subject will be admitted to studies. Also those students who have gained the same number of points as the last listed applicant will be admitted to studies, too.
The entrance examination is composed from the evaluation of the following parts:
1) result of the state entrance examination (a maximum of 100 points),
2) result of the school entrance examination (a maximum of 66 points).
The state entrance examination is composed of two didactic tests: a) Czech language and literature (sample here) and b) Mathematics (sample here). Applicants receive a maximum of 50 points for the individual didactic tests. The highest possible number of points for the state examination is therefore 100 points if the applicant responds correctly to all the questions in both tests. The information on the preparatory course for the state entrance examination can be found here. The school entrance examination is composed of the test of general studies requirements (sample here). Depending on the test result, applicants may obtain up to 66 points. The information on the preparatory course for the school entrance examination can be found here.
