Adaptation of entrance examinations

The majority of MU entrance examinations are written. Applicants who provide proof of health impairment are entitled to the examination being adapted to an accessible form. This form is created by the Teiresias Centre and it respects:

  • the form and contents of the test, i.e. open or closed questions, which skills are being tested etc.,
  • the type of the applicant’s impairment and their subsequent requirements for working with text (the test in digital or printed form, in sign language etc.),
  • the applicant’s requirements concerning the work space and its technical equipment (the possibility of using assistive technologies, barrier-free space, enough space for taking the test etc.).

General adaptations of the entrance examinations

The conditions of the applicant’s working with the test are arranged beforehand based on consultations with the Teiresias Centre. You will complete your entrance examination at the  Centre and you will be entitled to extended time for taking the test based on individual needs (twice the standard time at most). We can also provide assistance with the final transferring of your answers to the answer sheet.
