Applicants are admitted WITHOUT ADMISSION EXAMINATIONS. In case that 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 the total average of study results in individual school reports (from the lowest to the highest). The condition for the acceptance is the placement in the order of admitted students. If applicants pass the school leaving examination this year, the results from last three completed years of study at a secondary school and a school report from the first half of the current school year are evaluated. As far as other applicants are concerned, the average is calculated from annual reports for the last 4 years of study at a secondary school. This also applies to study at follow-up vocational schools. Applicants who do not provide all the results of their studies over the last 4 years at a secondary school will be placed last in the order. Total average is calculated for two decimal places. All applicants with the same average as the last admitted applicant are also included among the order of students to be admitted.
  • Applicants who are placed in the order of students to be admitted and meet other conditions for admission are notified of admission to the study,
  • Applicants who are placed in the order of students to be admitted but do not meet the conditions for admission (it applies to applicants passing their school leaving exam in 2021) are informed that they were placed among the order of students to be admitted and they would be admitted after meeting all the conditions for admission,
  • Applicants who are not placed in the order of students to be admitted are not admitted to study.
