If the number of applications is lower than that, however, the school’s principal may decide by March 8, 2021 not to hold the uniform and school entrance examination and thereby accepting all the candidates.

Common provisions for the four-year and six-year Grammar School

The uniform (state) entrance exam consists of two didactic tests from a) Czech language and literature (sample for 6-year grammar school here and 4-year grammar school here) and b) Mathematics (sample for 6-year grammar school here and 4-year grammar school here). The maximum number of points awarded for each of the didactic tests is 50 points. The highest score for the entrance examination is therefore 100 points in the case of error-free answers in both tests. The school part of the entrance examination then consists of a test of General Study Prerequisites – OSP (samples for 6-year grammar school here and 4-year grammar school here). Depending on the test result, the candidate can get up to 66 points for the 6-year grammar school and 900 points for the 4-year grammar school. Information about the preparatory courses for the school part of the entrance examination can be found here.

If the candidate is evaluated based on his / her school reports, only the first semester reports from the last two years are presented. If the applicant has not been evaluated in any of the evaluated periods by classification (grade) and only verbal evaluation has been used, the applicant will ask the primary school to provide the equivalent classification (grade). Pursuant to Section 51, Paragraph 3 of the Education Act, a primary school is obliged to transfer verbal evaluation to a classification by grade for the purposes of the admission procedure to a secondary school.

Candidates who take part in the 1st round of the entrance examination will be ranked according to the results of the entrance examination on the basis of the results of both parts of the entrance examination. Applicants who place between the 1st place to the place that corresponds to the order of the applicant who placed last within the capacity announced for the 1st round of the admission procedure for the given grammar school, will be admitted. Candidates who achieve the same score as the last mentioned candidate will also be accepted. In the event that candidates place in the same place, the ranking will be decided on the basis of their school reports.
