The course of the exam
After the chairman of the committee has recorded the exact number of attendees and their basic data (name, place and time of birth, mother's name) in the electronic exam report, he opens the exam and starts the exam software.
The chairman of the committee informs the participants that he is obliged to exclude from the exam without warning the perpetrators of the following actions:
• who uses an electronic device during the exam that contains any knowledge material that can be used in the fishing exam, which may give its user an unfair advantage,
• who communicates with other examinees either verbally or in writing.
All examinees must answer the exam questions in the context of an online knowledge test on the tablet provided by our Association for the duration of the exam.
After completion, the system indicates the score achieved and automatically evaluates the exam as pass or fail. During the exam, a minimum of 30 points out of the maximum possible 45 points must be achieved.
In the case of a successful exam, the state fishing exam certificate is automatically generated in the angler's online profile for the person who took the exam.
Tasks after the exam
The chairman of the fishing examination committee electronically records and closes the results of the examination, and then sums up on the attendance sheet, which is a mandatory appendix to the minutes, how many of the candidates who applied for the examination passed the examination.
