Admission requirements

Registration for both the state graduation exam and  the study programmes offered by the Department of Mathematics is done for all applicants through the National Information System of Applications to 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 undergraduate 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 to the study programme, i.e., they are awarded 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 the state graduation exam results, points are allocated as follows:

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

  • Informatics (a maximum of 20% admission points),

The informatics exam passed as part of the state graduation exam is not considered as an admission requirement.

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 criteria:

  • participation in a competition - one of the following three competitions is taken into account:

    • participation in a county high school mathematics or informatics competitions provides 100 specific points;

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

    • participation in a primary school county competition in mathematics or informatics provides 30 specific points;

  • if the applicant's name is published on the list of students who have correctly solved a mathematics or informatics related task given in a professional journal, this provides 30 specific points;
  • if a professional paper in the field of mathematics is published in a professional journal, this provides 100 specific points; and
  • presentation at a professional mathematics or informatics conference provides 100 specific points.

Applicants who earn at least 100 specific points under the aformentioned 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 evaluated by the Committee of the Department of Mathematics on the basis of applications submitted by applicants.

By 26 June 2020, applicants who want to have points recognised 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. The 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.
