The applicants are accepted WITHOUT ADMISSION EXAMINATIONS. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of students to be admitted determined by the Dean of the FFPW, applicants are admitted on the basis of the order determined by a combination of the order of applicants according to the results of their secondary school studies and a score assigned to them by the Admission Committee.
Applicants´ order according to their results achieved at the secondary school is determined on the basis of a total average (from the lowest to the highest) from study results achieved in individual school reports at the end of each year of a secondary school before passing their school leaving examination (with regard to multi-year grammar schools, it applies to last four years, with regard to students who are about to pass their school leaving exam, it applies to all results of their school reports at the end of the three grades and the first half of the current school year at a secondary school). An applicant who does not provide all the study results for the last four years at a secondary school is placed last in this part of evaluation. The average is calculated for two decimal places. Applicants with the same average are placed at the same place. Other applicants are placed according to their actual order (e.g. if two applicants are placed third, next one is placed fifth).

of their employment, their motivation to qualification improvement and the employer’s recommendation. The applicant´s place is determined according to the order of applicants. Applicants with the same number of points are placed at the same place.
