Description of the TSP (form and content of the test)
The Student Assesment Test (TSP) examines the candidate's ability to successfully study at Masaryk University. It consists of 60 items divided into 6 subtests. It is a test of verbal, numerical, analytical and critical thinking, spatial imagination and cultural overview. Each subtest contains 9 items. An exception is the subtest Critical Thinking, which contains 9 items in Czech and 6 entries in a foreign language. Each entry consists of the assignment and the five available response options, one of which is always the right one. The correct answer is attributed to one point, the incorrect answer is deducted by 0.25 points; an unanswered item means zero points. The duration of the TSP is 100 minutes. Foreign Language Subjects Critical Thinking are presented in English, German and French. The applicant for the study chooses the preferred language variant within the electronic application form.
TSP Evaluation Method
Only the responsive form is used to evaluate the TSP, which is computer-readable and processed. The answer form is identified by the assigned identification number (application number), which will be sent to the applicant in a written invitation to the TSP. The determining criterion for success in TSP is the so-called percentile calculated on the basis of the number of points obtained and the TSP variant the candidate wrote. Each candidate can get a maximum of 100th percentile, the minimum percentile is almost zero. The percentile expresses how many percent of the bidders submitted lower or equal performance.
