  • The content of the test will reflect the current standard of secondary school curriculum requirements for the Czech Republic and will be based on the published topics (not solely on the recommended literature).
  • The content of the written test will cover topics from three sciences: biology and physics in the range of secondary school education and based on recommended literature.
  • Each written test will contain 30 questions on each of the three sciences listed above. Each correct answer will be awarded one point.
  • Oral interview - general professional knowledge of the field. Assessment of the oral interview: 0 - 30 points.
