Alternative to the matriculation examination in mathematics is passing the mathematics examination conducted by an authorized external assessor (https://www.scio.sk/nps/matematika.asp). An alternative to the matriculation examination in biology or chemistry is an examination in biology or chemistry conducted by an authorised external assessor (https://www.scio.sk/nps/biologie.asp or https://www.scio.sk/nps/chemie.asp).
An alternative to the matriculation examination in any of the above subjects for Ukrainian applicants for full-time studies with the Slovak language of instruction is passing an examination in the relevant subject assessed by an external independent assessor (http://osvita.ua/test/).
