Note on the Polish language

In the case of the Polish language exam for the IB diploma levels A / A1 / A2 (HL or SL) and B HL are taken into account as HL (advanced level), and levels Ab initio and B SL – as SL (standard level).

If admissions rules for the programme so provide, in case of candidates who do not have the possibility of taking Polish language examination within the International Baccalaureate (IB) or European Baccalaureate (EB), we take into account:

  • language A1 or A (for IB),
  • language L1 or L1+3 (for EB).

A candidate who has got the IB diploma should choose the option: “language A1/A (in case of lack of Polish language)” on his/her registration account. Additionally, s/he should indicate the language, which s/he has passed on the level A/A1 (a candidate chooses e.g. ‘IB English language (A, A1, A2)’).

A candidate who has got the EB diploma should choose the option: “language L1 (in case of lack of Polish language)” on his/her registration account. Additionally, s/he should indicate the language, which s/he has passed on the level L1 or L1+3 (a candidate chooses e.g. ‘EB English language’).

In the qualification procedure of candidates with the IB and EB diplomas for studies conducted in the Polish language, the admissions committees may conduct an additional entrance exams to verify the candidate’s competency to study in Polish.
