Terms of recruitment
Candidate’s final result is a sum of points obtained during secondary school final examinations in two subjects chosen from the following list: physics, geography, history, IT, English, maths, social studies. On registering in the IRK system (the Internet Recruitment for Candidates System ) the candidate indicates subjects which should be considered for calculating points.
Admission procedure for candidates with "new" matura examinations certificate (from 2005 to 2022)
Admission is based on the result from the written examinations calculated into points as follows:
• percentage points gained from the subject taken at a basic level where 1% equals 1 point or
• percentage points gained from the subject taken at an extended level and multiplied by 2.
In relation to the above, a candidate may obtain no more than 200 points from one subject. The ‘zwolniony’ (‘exempt’) record on the matura certificate obtained in the external examinations equals to a maximum number of points.
Admission procedure for candidates with "old" matura examinations certificate
Admission is based on the marks from the written and oral examinations calculated into points as follows:
- 6,0 – 100 points
- 5,0 – 90 points
- 4,0 – 70 points
- 3,0 – 50 points
- 2,0 – 30 points
A final result is the sum of points obtained by calculating the marks on a matura examination certificate from a chosen subject. Thus a candidate may obtain no more than 200 points from one subject.
Admission procedure for candidates with foreign secondary school (maturity) certificate
After candidate’s submission of required documents, the admission board calculates the points/results from the chosen subject taken during the maturity examination, separately for each candidate on the basis of the grading system used valid in the candidate’s country of origin.
The way of calculating the points obtained during the foreign maturity examination is adjusted to the assessment and points calculation system of candidates who took the examination in Poland.
