The admission examinations represent a first important moment in academic education. If the admission proceedings really are expected to satisfy the intention to select those most capable and fittest candidates for study, proper attention has to be paid to them. Besides checking and confirming satisfactory levels of the results of secondary school studies they also should predict with sufficient reliability the academic success of study in the given branch. The paper brings research results concerning the given problems at the Faculty of Economics and Management CULS in Prague. The paper focused on the examining relationship between study results and admission exam results in Bachelor study at Faculty of Economics and Management CULS over 2008-2011. The current analysis was made for 1 251 students who pass the admission exams in 2008. The relationship between study results and admission exam results was examined by Spearman rank correlation coefficient. The research also concentrates on the question how much the success of study can be predicted based on results of admission proceedings. As a data sample was chosen the Informatics branch of Bachelor ordinary study. The relationship between admission exam results and average progress was examined by regression analysis.
