Admissions criteria for candidates with "new" Polish maturity exam (issued after 2005)

For candidates with NEW MATURA EXAM:

Competitive admission based on diploma grades, which takes into account the result in the written part of Matura exam in a modern foreign language, converted to ranking points.

The rules of converting the results of Matura exam expressed in percent to ranking points:

  • Percentage in the written Matura exam at the basic level is converted to points as follows: 1% = 1 point.
  • Percentage in the written Matura exam at the advanced level is converted to points as follows: 1% = 2 points.
  • Percentage in the written Matura exam at the bilingual level is converted to points as follows: 1% = 2.5 points.

In the case when the secondary school-leaving certificate contains the exam results at different levels, and when the candidate improved the Matura exam result, the result which gives the higher number of points after conversion (more favourable for the candidate) is taken into account.

Admissions criteria for candidates with "old" Polish maturity exam (issued before 2005)

For candidates with OLD MATURA EXAM:

The results of Matura exam will be converted to percentage points in following way:

The candidate who obtained the European Baccalaureate diploma, issued by European Schools in accordance to the Luxemburg Convention of 21 June 1994 about the European School status, are subject to the same admission rules as holders of “new” Polish maturity exam. The results on the diploma of European Baccalaureate are treated as results of the extended “new” Polish maturity exams and are calculated according to the following indicators:

EB exam

“new” Polish maturity exam

9,00 ÷ 10,00

100%

8,00 ÷ 8,95

90%

7,00 ÷ 7,95

75%

6,00 ÷ 6,95

60%

5,00 ÷ 5,95

45%

4,00 ÷ 4,95

30%

In case the candidate does not submit the European Baccalaureate diploma, for the sake of qualification, the candidate is obliged to submit the certificate about the EB result issued by the appropriate institution and present the EB diploma immediately after its reception.

NOTE: If the admissions criteria for the programme assume additional entrance exams for the holders of “new” Polish maturity exams, the following factors are concerned during the qualification: result from EB diploma calculated according to the scale above and the results of the additional entrance exam.

Admissions criteria for candidates with a document obtained outside of Poland

For the candidates — Polish citizens who graduated from high school abroad or foreigners taking up studies on terms applicable for Polish citizens — the possibility to conduct an exam in a modern foreign language is allowed in the situation when a candidate has a secondary school-leaving certificate which does not include a modern foreign language as a school subject. A written exam will correspond in level to Matura exam in a modern foreign language at the advanced level. The exam results expressed in percent, on a scale of 30% - 100%, will be converted to ranking points in accordance with the same rules as for candidates with the new Matura exam.
