Additional information

SCIO's General Studies Aptitude Test (GSAT) in the National Comparative Examinations (NCEs), is being conducted by SCIO on six dates (before the faculty admission date) during the academic year 2021/2022 and in several cities in Slovakia. It is possible to take the NTS test more than once; applicants will always be credited with the best result (minimum pass mark is 50th percentile).

If a student succeeds on the SCIO test, i.e., achieves a 50 percentile or higher,he or she no longer takes the faculty written test in biology, but the faculty will give full credit for the admissions process.

If a student fail the SCIO test, the student has the option of taking the faculty written test in biology on the given admission date, and the faculty will not consider the SCIO test score.

Testing dates, sample tests, and the requirements for signing up for testing are posted at http://www.scio.sk/nps/. Signing up for the SCIO test and paying the associated costs is the responsibility of each applicant.

The Faculty does not organise these tests and does not register or invite candidates to take them. A candidate who duly applies for the examination will receive an invitation to the examination approximately 10 days before the examination by email from SCIO. The candidate does not submit his/her result to the faculty. The candidate's result is given to the faculty exclusively by SCIO. However, each candidate must give his/her consent to SCIO to hand over his/her results (he/she will do so as part of the application form for the HEI examination).

SCIO tests are optional and are not a condition for admission, the applicant does not have to take them !!!
