Hey guys, I just took the exams and i was thinking that maybe it would somebody help in the next year, because of lack of informations about entrance exams, i didnt know how to prepare, i've read some stories but i didnt know what to expect.
(Sorry, my English isnt perfect)
So.. here are the basic informations

Test consited of:
1. Multiple choice questions
-we got maybe 10 papers of articles/reports, and the test was based on given informations in these reports, there were 2 exercises true/false, and in the one other exercise were 3 open questions-had to write approximately 40-50 words answer- it was based on given material too
-there were 1 exercise of "math", really easy only logical basics
2. Open questions based on pre-reading material
-3 questions for 1/2 words answers, then 3 open questions- 40-50 words answer too
-easy things, if u studied, u would know everything
3. Language test
-i had german, 1. Exercise - short articel, we had to write words which were left out, it was given if its articel, prepostion, or so. Second exercise- write a short story based on given pictures
- i was in the group with 3 people
-firstly, teachers asked 2 questions each, questions were different, like: why do u suitable student for us, what are your strenghtens, why did u chose studying in english, what is your hobby,...
Than we made pairs, each got one theme. We had one minute to think about what we will talking about, than we had to discuss 3 minutes with our partner, and than we had to present what our partner said to teachers.
In my oppinion, the tests were easy, basic. I was suprised, i expected something harder, more maths, professional themes, harder tasks. The best what u can do, improve your vocabulary, discussion skills, study the pre-reading material with attention. They want to like find out if u re suitable for learning, if u have critical thinking, if u know present your attitudes. They dont test your knowledge. So dont stress, just improve yourselfs.

1. Mathematical logical test
-so eaaasy, i would pass it 3 yrs ago. BASIC equations, percentage problems, logical things. It was multiple choice test- i would say, elementary math
2. Multiple choice test based on pre reading material
- if u study well, u will know the suitable answer
- than there were 4 open answers, based on themes from the report. It was quite silly, the themes were huge, they wanted short answers (cca 40 words again), and i didnt know what exactly they want
-i was in the group with 4 people, we got theme, had 1 min for thinking, and had to discuss with each other without interruption of teacher
The exam was easy. Maths was like wtf really easy. Interview i expected some specialised economic themes, some deep questions. Discussion only with students- its like talk with ur friends.
So best advice, read, hear, write english. Dont worry about math, i dont know i think that everyone must pass math like this. (I am from the Slovakia, huuge difference between skills required) be comfortable with talking, writing.
I hope i will be accepted
Goos luck !
