It all started with applying to the Czech university – “Prihlaska”. I submitted several applications to different universities to be sure that at least somewhere I will definitely enroll. The priority for admission for me was the VSE in Prague.  Therefore, I was mainly preparing for the entrance exams to this university in Prague.

To enter the Faculty of International Relations, I had to pass mathematics, English, a second foreign language (in my case it was French), and also pass Czech separately. The Czech language is not taken into account in the competition during admission to the VSE, because it is only needed by foreign students. The Czech language test must be written at least 60%.

How to enroll in the VSE in Prague. This year, the entrance exam in the Czech language at the VSE was held online and consisted of three parts: oral, reading and listening. We were divided into groups of 7 people and sent each a link to a meeting in MS TEAMS, we sat the whole exam with the cameras turned on. In the oral part, everyone had to be asked 3 questions (1 or 2 of them on an economic topic), but if you answer very well, then only 1 can be asked. Here the examiners look not so much at grammar as at the ability to speak Czech, express their thoughts clearly, and of course, Czech vocabulary.

Note. Now, when applying to the VSE, Ukrainians were allowed to take Russian as a second foreign language (although it was previously impossible), justifying this by the fact that it is not their official language. And, obviously, they wrote it very well, because they know it almost perfectly. Because of all this, the threshold for admission to the Vysoká škola ekonomická in Prague soared from 150 to 240 points, and many did not pass the VSE competition, although they were completely confident in their abilities.

  1. Hi, thank you for your sharing. I wonder where you are from. Because your study is so good. I am struggling with my study in VSE in the Czech program. I am so tired of the fact that the professors speak so fast and shorten the words.
    Thank you for your answer

  2. Hey Anna, thank you for your comment and interest about the site. How I passed my summer session.
    In the middle of May, we finished studying. In the summer semester, I had to take exams in six subjects. I took all the exams in writing, but I still had to take three oral exams. I couldn’t pass one exam.
    I didn’t pass it because I didn’t prepare properly, it wasn’t extremely difficult or smth , but I just didn’t have any energy to learn smth that time.
    This was my first failed subject in 2 years of study.
    As far as I got under 50% on the final exam, I couldn’t rewrite it. (We have a rule in VSE: you pass if you have more than 60%, if you have 50-59% – you have one more attempt to write the exam. If you get less – you have to retake the whole subject in the next semester. That’s exactly what I had to do.
    The last exam in the subject Business and law I passed on 20.06 for “2” grade .
    My tips:
    1 – chose dates of your exams wisely, so that you have pauses between them and you can properly prepare
    2 – when you go to oral exams, better go first, don’t wait or you will just get more stressed
    3 – use VSE borec to look for advises from different student for certain subjects (they download their synopsises, different materials, they share questions that they had on the exam etc)
    The only advise I can give to better understand Fast Czech speech is to listen to podcast, watch films in Czech. In this case only practice and practice of listening can help.
