A written test and an oral examination.
The examination consists of two parts: a written test and an oral examination. In order to be able to sit for the oral part of the exam, students need to reach a minimum score of 60% in the test.
The written test as part of a standardized exam is based on upper intermediate grammar and IT vocabulary. It consists of listening, reading, grammar and vocabulary, and writing sections. The new type of test will be used from the spring term 2014. In the autumn term the test will consist of a multiple choice test (30 questions) and 10 key word transformations (the versïon used up to now). Students can be exempt from the written part of the exam (but still have to take the oral part) if they have the following certificates: Cambridge English: First (previously FCE), Advanced (previously CAE), Proficiency (previously CPE); IELTS band score 5.5/6.5 or higher; TOEFL iBT Total score 87 or higher. Secondary school exams (i.e. maturita) are not accepted. Students must submit their certificate (original plus a copy) to CJV FI head (Ms Tulajova) one month prior to the start of the exam period in which they wish to take VB001.
The oral examination is a presentation on an IT-related topic and a short discussion. It also includes translating phrases/grammar and IT vocabulary focused sentences from Czech into English.
