For candidates with NEW MATURA EXAM

Admission to studies is based on secondary school-leaving grades in any three subjects taken in the written part of Matura exam that the candidate achieved the highest percentage score in.

The basic level result will be multiplied by 0.5.

If the candidate took the subject during the Matura exam at both levels, the result which is more favourable for the candidate is taken into account.

Admission to studies is decided by means of the place on the ranking list, created on the basis of the sum of percentage points in the Matura exam subjects.

"Old" Polish maturity exam

In the case of the candidates who took the “old” Polish maturity exam, the results of particular subjects taken orally or in writing (specified in the relevant programme admission criteria for candidates who passed the “new” Polish maturity exam), placed on the certificate of secondary education and certificate issued by Regional Examinations Board, are taken into consideration.

The method of converting results of the Polish maturity exam is adjusted to the evaluation system for the candidates who took the “new” Polish maturity exam.

The maturity exam grades will be converted to percentage points as follows:

Maturity exam after 1991

6 — 100 %

5 — 100 %

5 — 80 %

4 — 70 %

4 — 75 %
