The applicants are accepted WITHOUT ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS. In case that the number of applicants exceeds the number of admitted students set by the dean of the FFPW, the applicants will be accepted on the basis of the order determined by the total average of study averages from single reports (from the lowest to the highest). The condition for the acceptance is the placement in the order of admitted students. If the applicants graduate currently, the results from annual reports for last three completed years of study at the secondary school and report for the first half of current school year will be evaluated. Otherwise, the average from annual reports for last 4 years of study at the secondary school is calculated in cases of other applicants. This also applies to study at vocational schools with extension. Who does not supply all the results of studies over the last 4 years of study at secondary school, will be placed last in the order.
