Matriculation Exam Certificates/Secondary School Exit Exam Certificates awarded abroad

Matriculation exam certificates/Secondary school exit exam certificates awarded abroad shall be considered equivalent to Polish matriculation exam certificates if they contain a clause stating the right to apply for admission to higher education institutions in the country of issue of the certificate.

Matriculation exam certificate/secondary school exit exam certificate holders are required to submit the following documents within the registration time limits:

  1. certificate of recognition, for a matriculation exam certificate issued in a country without an agreement signed with the Republic of Poland on mutual recognition of documents on education, and for a document from a country having such an agreement signed with the Republic of Poland but the document is not covered by it,
  2. attestation in the form of apostille, if the document is issued by an institution operating within the education system of a country that is a party to the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents (Journal of Laws of 2005., No. 112, item. 938),
  3. certified translation into Polish of the exam certificate and attestation thereof if executed in a foreign language.

The score for subjects shall not be converted. This means that the candidate cannot be directly evaluated in the competition of matriculation exam certificates, but is required to sit for an oral entrance examination for two subjects:

  • in the following fields of study of biology,  food technology and human nutrition – the following subjects: biology and chemistry or mathematics
  • in the field of study of political sciences – the following subjects: geography and history or social studies,
  • in the following fields of study: information sciences, mathematics – the following subjects: mathematics and physics

The exams are assessed according to the grading scale of 1-6. The exam shall be considered passed if the candidate attains at least pass grade (2.0) for both subjects. Foreign language as a third subject shall be recognised as passed with a grade of 6.0 (excellent) - with regard to the language of the country where the candidate has obtained his/her matriculation exam certificate. The resulting average grade multiplied by the factor of 100.00 shall rank the candidate in the competition (ranking) of matriculation exam certificates.
Where a disabled person applies for studies, the Examination Board in consultation with the Chairman of the Faculty Admissions Committee may, upon the candidate's request, use a different manner of conducting the examination, respecting the degree of disability and the specificity of a given field of study.

 

Candidates who are shortlisted for studies are required to confirm their intention to study by submitting the required documents listed below:

  1. application for admission (submitted as a printout from the Internet Registration of Candidates [IRK]) bearing the candidate's signature,
  2. photocopy of the matriculation examination certificate (original document available on request),

  5. photocopy of the identity card or passport (original document available on request),

The required documents must be submitted by the date specified in the schedule of admissions. The failure to submit the required documents within the prescribed period means that the candidate renounces applying for studies, and results in deletion of the candidate from the list of candidates eligible for admission to the first year of study in a given field of study without any further request to supplement the documentation.
