For attending an exam, you need to fulfill requirements for "zápočet" (Check your KOS).

The PUI exam has two parts:

  • written test
  • oral exam

Total number of points possible to get from the exam is 50. You can get maximum of 30 points from the written test and maximum of 20 points from the oral exam. For passing the whole exam, you need at least 25 points.

You have to take the written test before the oral exam. You will be given your grade in the oral exam, based on your score from the assignments and homeworks, written test score and your answers in the oral exam.

When resitting the exam, you have to take both the written test and oral exam again.

All questions in the exam are in english, you can answer either in Czech or English. You can ask for a translation if you need it.

There will be mostly theory in the oral part of the exam and mostly practice in the written part of the exam.

You can use your pocket calculators (no mobile phones).

Registering for the Exam

To register for an exam date, sign up in KOS. On the day of the exam, you will sit a written test in the morning. After completing the written exam, you will be admitted to the oral exam in the afternoon.

Sign-up for exam dates will close 2 days before the exam, at which point we will send out an email to registered students who can then pick a timeslot for the oral exam.

You can attempt the exam at most three times.

Written Test

Written test will take place between 10:00 and 12:00. There will be questions from both parts of the class.

Oral Exam

The oral exam will take place between 14:00 and 18:00. The exam will take place in Stefan Edelkampf's office and take 15 minutes, please be ready at your allotted timeslot on the 4th floor (attic, where the old computers are on display).

When signing up for the timeslots, please fill in the timeslots from the beginning of this time period to prevent gaps.


  • Q: Do I need to submit assignment 2?
  • A: You need to submit assignment 2 to get “zápočet” even if you already have enough points from assignment 1. However, you can take a minimalist approach (with corresponding minimalist score), with code and report on e.g. replanning only. You could also submit report only, with no code, where you review some of the methods we have worked with in probabilistic planning and mention their potential in given task.
