    entrance exam to first faculty

    Advertisements



    to neilc, drewshaker, or anyone else who would know:

    I took the first faculty's entrance exam yesterday and felt completely blown away by the multiply correct answers, especially in biology, and was wondering if 45/90 is the passing score regardless of how you do in each section or if you have to get atleast 15/30 in each section to pass?

    Just as a side note: I noticed some errors on the test like missing characters, improper grammar and incorrect spelling. nothing too difficult, but just as a suggestion, maybe some of the uperclassmen could edit the test for next year to make it a bit more comprehensible.

    so what is it 45/90 overall, or 15/30, 15/30, 15/30?

    also, how soon did you all find out whether or not you passed?

    thanks

    ...

    i believe the minimum is 50% total correct, not broken down by exam, but i am not sure.

    you should know how you did sometime this week. i am pretty sure they notify everyone within a couple of weeks. that may have changed with the larger class size and higher applicant numbers.

    so, i guess the best advice is to try to relax and enjoy the weekend. i am sure you did well!

    as far as the grammar, etc...it is an idea that has been thrown around. but, for unknown reasons, they have never had it worked on. as you noticed, they are not that good at writing multiple choice exams. some are even worse than that....beleive me, by the end of the first year you will be glad that most exams are oral!

    exam

    I took the exam in Prague, and there was no minimum score required on each section (the lowest i got was 14/30). You just had to get 45/90.

    Just curious, did you know ahead of time about the devastating "multiple choice" format or did you just find out at the exam, like we all seem to in Prague?

    multiply correct

    well, I read a few posts on here about those questions, but I figured they would be like:

    A. A
    B. AB
    C. AO
    D. O
    E. A&B
    F. All of the above

    and not just the four answers.

    I asked Viera about it and she said that they do offer partial credit for not having all of the answers correct.

    I think I only put more than one correct answer for 2 or 3 questions, certainly not the majority. Was your experience the same?

    Damn, I hope I get in.

    scoring

    i had an overwhelming number of questions with multiple answers. and partial credit? lucky. we didn't have that. and the UK students told me had negative marking for wrong answers. that blows.

    I think the marking should be standardized. but it's administered by different "people" therefore marked differently. I wasn't warned about the weird MCQ until I physically sat down in that room. and then i started sweating!!

    I got in!

    I didn't think I did it, but I scored 50 points! Looks like this time next year, I'll be studying in Prague. Any suggestions to prepare? language books, etc.? I've been there before and I know most people can speak atleast a little English, but it would be nice to go over with somewhat of a working knowledge of Czech.

    Matt jsem Jasmin,

    Congrats. I've been using the more expensive Teach yourself Czech but I don't like the CD's. The instructional portion is fine but when it comes to the dialogue, they speak much to fast and sometimes speak in such a low old man's voice that you can't learn how to say the words.

    One of the best sites I've found is Czech Online. That will give you a good foundation so when you get to Praha you can at least introduce yourself, find your way around, ask for help and count Cesky money. I think the best way to learn a new language is the same way we teach a child to speak english. It isn't until latter in life we teach the child grammar, verbs, adverbs and so on.

    However, everyone learns in different ways. Some may learn better by learning the grammar, verbs, adverbs and so on first. Nevertheless, check that site out. If you study daily like I do, you'll be speaking cesky in no time flat and you'll have a head start to those who don't begin to learn the language until they get v Praze.

    blahopreji a vitam vas v praze.


    Dekuju, Na sheladnou,

    Jasmin

    Congratulations!

    Congrats on getting in Matt. If I were you I wouldn't stress too much about trying to learn Czech before you get here -- it's a difficult language and many of those language books suck. Once you start you'll be in Czech classes for three years. If you are smart you will make some Czech friends and exchange English for Czech lessons. You might want to consider coming here early and enrolling in a month long Czech immersion course. Drewshaker did this.

    You will learn the language much better and faster once you are here.

    Cau!
