Final Examination - Master's Degree
Form of state final examination
The state master's examination consists of a thesis defence and an oral examination. The entire state examination lasts 1 hour (approximately 30 minutes defence, 30 minutes examination). The student has 15 minutes to present his/her thesis and another 15 minutes are devoted to the analysis of the reports and discussion. During the examination, the student answers unprepared questions, typically a debate of two to three questions.
In the case of negative opinions on the thesis, the student may waive the defense, accept the "fail" grade and proceed directly to the examination. In the case of an unsuccessful defence, it is not possible to withdraw from the examination.
The reason for failing the Master's State Examination is:
- The student fails to explain (even intuitively) any of the concepts explicitly stated in the question wording.
- The student is able to formulate definitions of the concepts but is unable to apply them practically even with an elementary example.
- The student knows the concepts explicitly stated in the question wording, but all only at a superficial level, unable to respond to follow-up questions.
- Ignorance from one question (i.e., F-level knowledge) cannot be balanced by brilliant knowledge from the other questions.
The language in which the exam is conducted depends on the discipline. SSMEA, EMBA, BITA: English. SSME, EMB: English, Czech or Slovak at the student's choice. Other subjects: Czech or Slovak. The thesis defence is expected in the language in which the thesis is written, but English written thesis can be defended in Czech or Slovak.
