Dean's Provision No. 4/2019
Rules of the entrance examination procedure for the academic year 2019/2020
This Dean’s Provision lays down the rules which applicants are required to observe during the admission procedure at the Second Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and the right of the applicants to inspect all materials in their file that are relevant to their admission to the study program.
Rules of the Admission Procedure
In accordance with Article 11 of the Statute of Charles University (hereinafter referred to as the Admission Procedure Code) I lay down the rules for applicants for study at the Second Faculty of Medicine of Charles University:
The applicant will receive two parts of an invitation to the entrance examination by Student Information system (SIS). The first part will be used for the first written test, and the second part for the second written test. An applicant to the English parallel will receive an invitation in advance through Student Information system (SIS). The applicant will complete only one written test.
The applicant is obligated to check that his/her personal details agree with the details on the invitation to the admission procedure for the academic year 2019/20.
At the request of the supervisor, the applicant shall sign the relevant part of the invitation for each test, confirming that he/she is not physically disabled and that the health condition allows him/her to take the appropriate test.
After receiving the appropriate test, the applicant is required to check whether the test, the result form and the label have the same identification number. Any inconsistencies are to be immediately reported by the applicant to the supervisor of the lecture hall, where he/she is writing the test.
The applicant will paste the label he/she receives with each test on the relevant part of the invitation.
The applicant fills in the result form with a black ball pen only which is provided by a faculty member before the admission procedure starts and indicates the correct answers in accordance with the test guidelines.
The applicant is obliged to stop writing at the request of the supervisor and to hand over the relevant part of the invitation with the label, the result form, and the test itself to the supervisor in the lecture hall and then leave the lecture hall.
During the course of the admission process the applicant is not allowed to use these unauthorized means:
- A calculator, spreadsheets, or other similar tools
- Mobile telephones, tablets, smart watches with an operating system, or other similar tools
and it is sufficient for them to be found with the candidate in order to consider such a situation for a violation.
During the written tests, the applicants are strictly forbidden to copy others' tests, to allow their own tests to be copied by another applicant, and must not contact any other applicant or be contacted by any other applicant.
During a written test, the applicant is not allowed to leave the test site without supervision, nor shall he/she make any marks on the test after the set testing time has elapsed.
The consequence of such a behaviour which may undermine the equal chances of the applicants, as described in points 8–10 above, is the removal of the test and the results will not be evaluated. In such a case, the applicants are not eligible for a substitute date. In case of termination of the entrance examination or its part, a written protocol of such termination stating the relevant reasons will be recorded and will be included in the applicant's file.
An applicant may request the interruption and cancelation of the admission test due to a sudden severe medical indisposition, if it is obvious that he/she cannot continue with the test. The urgency of the indisposition will be evaluated by the Vice-Dean for study or by an authorized member of the faculty. A protocol of the event will be immediately recorded, signed by the applicant and an authorized member of the faculty. The results of the interrupted examination will not be evaluated and the Vice-Dean for study, in cases of special consideration, may allow the Examination to be held on an alternative date if the applicant so requests, giving due reasons, within three days of the day of the interrupted examination. A pertinent objection claiming indisposition at the time of the examination cannot be applied retrospectively.
- The applicant has the possibility to request access to his/her relevant materials in a file in accordance with the provisions of Section 50 (5) of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., On Higher Education Institutions and Article 11 (4) of the Admission Procedure Rules:
- Solely the applicant who proves his/her identity with a citizen's identity card, passport or an equivalent EU ID card (with photo) has the right to inspect relevant materials of the applicant for study at the Second Faculty of Medicine, decisive for his/her admission to study.
- The examination of the materials will be allowed to the applicants of the Second Faculty of Medicine who will ask the faculty in a written form at least 5 working days before the established date of the examination. The date and time of examination of the materials in the applicant’s file will be published on the faculty web site.
This measure becomes valid and effective on date of the signature.
The following is hereby repealed: Dean's Provision No. 9/2018.
