Admission requirements

Registration for the state graduation exam and registration for the study programmes offered by the Department of Mathematics are done for all applicants through the National Information System of Applications for Higher Education Institutions (NISpVU), which can be accessed through the website www.postani-student.hr.

For admission to the Undergraduate university study programme in mathematics and the Integrated undergraduate and graduate university study programme in mathematics and computer science, applicants must have completed their four-year secondary school education and passed the state graduation exam in each of the following three subjects:

  • A-level mathematics,

  • Croatian at level A or B, and

  • foreign language at level A or B.

Applicants who participated in a national competition in mathematics or informatics during their high-school education are eligible for direct admission, i.e., they may obtain the maximum number of admission points (i.e., 100%).

Based on their high-school success, applicants can achieve a maximum of 30% admission points.

On the basis of exams passed within the framework of the state graduation procedure, scores are achieved based upon success applicants have achieved in:

  • Mathematics – threshold 35% (maximum of 40% admission points), and

  • Informatics (maximum of 20% admission points),

while passing the informatics exam within the state graduation examination procedure is not a requirement for admission.

Applicants can achieve the remaining 10% of admission points by means of special achievements in the field of mathematics or informatics on the basis of the following activities:

  • participation in at least one county high-school math competition provides 100 specific points;

  • participation in at least one primary school national or regional competition in mathematics or informatics provides 50 specific points;

  • participation in at least one primary school county competition in mathematics provides 30 specific points;

  • applicant's name published on the list of students who have correctly solved a mathematics or informatics related task given in a professional journal provides 30 specific points;

  • a paper published in the field of mathematics or informatics in a professional journal or conference proceedings provides 100 specific points.

Applicants who earn at least 100 points under these specific criteria are recognised all 10% of admission points. Applicants who score less than 100 specific points under these criteria are recognised a corresponding percentage of admission points.

Special achievements are scored by the Committee of the Department of Mathematics on the basis of applications submitted by applicants.

By 15 June 2014, applicants who want to score points based upon their special achievements must submit an application and appropriate documentation to the Department of Mathematics pursuant to which they request evaluation of their special achievements. Application form is available at the Student Administration Office of the Department of Mathematics and here.

Applicants who completed their four-year secondary school education before 2010 must pass the state graduation exam in mathematics and they will be included on the ranking list according to the aforementioned criteria.
