Classification procedure

Classification procedure within the entrance examination includes:

  • rating of secondary education results
  • written assessment of knowledge through objective tasks
  • interview with the candidate in terms of verification of motivation and previous experience

A maximum of 1100 points can be achieved through the classification procedure as follows:

  • based on secondary education results – maximum of 400 points
  • mathematics test results – maximum of 300 points
  • English language test results – maximum of 300 points
  • interview with the applicant in order to evaluate motivation for studies– maximum of 100 points

Results of the classification procedure will be announced no later than one working day after the end of the procedure on the University College notice board and on the internet. The costs of the classification procedure are250,00 Kunaand need to be paid to the bank account of the University College at least three days before the entrance examination.

Candidates who have won one of the top three places in national competitions or participated in international Olympiads in mathematics or informatics during their secondary education are exempt from the assessment of knowledge during the classification procedure and are awarded 400 – 600 points. The same number of points is awarded instead of the results of the national secondary school leaving examination. The University College holds the right to interview such candidates in order to assess their motivation for studies.

The minimum number of points that candidates need to achieve on tests and interviews in order to complete the classification procedure and compete for admission is 300 points for students who are taking the entrance exam.

Knowledge assessment is carried out in mathematics and English language and consists of 30 exercises in mathematics and 20 questions (exercises) in English language.

The entrance examination lasts from 9.00 till 16.00 or during a different time schedule if so announced for each examination period and includes several breaks. If necessary, interviews with candidates can be conducted later on.

Interviews with candidates are conducted in order to assess their motivation for studies.

Prepare for the entrance exam in mathematics and English language with the help of examples of entrance exams.

The aim of the examples of entrance exams is to illustrate the official exam containing 30 exercises in mathematics with a maximum of 400 points. Exercises included in the example exam serve to assist in preparing for the exam because they represent areas that will be covered by the entrance exam and the level of complexity of tasks. The example of the entrance exam in English language serves the same purpose. During the entrance exam in mathematics it is allowed to use simple calculators and “yellow” tables. The University College will provide calculators and “yellow” tables for candidates who enter the exam without them.

  • basic Croatian language (B) level test – maximum of 200 points
  • interview with the applicant and special achievements (contests, projects etc.) – maximum of 100 points
