International Baccalaureate and Czech School Leaving Exams

Students choose our school thanks to accessible international education that gives them the opportunity to be highly successful in a global world. Our students take the International Baccalaureate (IB) schoolleaving exam. They can also choose traditional Czech School Leaving Exams or various combinations of both kind of exams. We spend a large part of their studies preparing them for all possibilities. They do not have to make a decision until the beginning of their final year.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate exams are most often chosen by students who already know that they want to study abroad. This is because good results in these exams help them in the entrance exams for Oxford, Stanford, Berkeley and a range of other prestigious universities. And our students genuinely have good results.

Czech School Leaving Exams

Czech exams are quite understandably chosen mainly by students who do not plan to move abroad. It is, of course, not impossible for students who only have Czech school leaving certificates to study abroad, but it is somewhat more complicated.

The Czech school leaving exams are made up of two parts, state and school exams. The state part of the exams is assigned by the Ministry of Education and contains exams in Czech and a choice of English and Mathematics. In the school part of the exams students choose an exam in three subjects of their own choice. Open Gate provides the room to discuss matters in depth and to ask about the genuine meaning of things, so these choices can also include subjects in which they have already taken state exams.

IB and Czech School Leaving Exams

A large number of our students want to leave all options open. For this reason, they take both the IB and Czech school leaving exams. We prepare each student in a way that makes them capable of using and understanding information, so it doesn’t matter who’s asking the question or how they ask.

Czech School Leaving Exams and IB Certificates

Students who are preparing to study in the Czech Republic but who would also like to take advantage of research fellowships and study stays abroad sometimes add International Baccalaureate certificates to their Czech school leaving exams. This typically happens in subjects that are applicable to their planned field of study. Certificates serve as proof that students take their study field seriously and are capable in that field.

International Baccalaureate and a State Czech Language Exam

This combination is available to our students thanks to an exception granted to Open Gate by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. Under this option, the International Baccalaureate and Czech school leaving exam are both recognised. In addition to the IB, however, students must also pass a state Czech language exam.
