Poland’s History Karen L. Kevin Danis
During the sixteenth century the Union of Lublin gave birth to the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. In the mid-seventeenth century, a Swedish invasion ("The Deluge") and the Cossacks' Chmielnicki Uprising which ravaged the country marked the end of the golden age.

Famines and epidemics followed hostilities, and the population dropped from roughly 11 to 7 million. Despite the erosion of its power, the Commonwealth was able to deal a crushing defeat to the Ottoman Empire in 1683 at the Battle of Vienna.
During World War I, all the Allies agreed on the reconstitution of Poland that United States President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed in Point 13 of his Fourteen Points. Shortly after the surrender of Germany in November 1918, Poland regained its independence as the Second Polish Republic.
Attack on Poland
During World War II, in 1939, Nazi Germany invaded on 1 September and the Soviet invasion followed on 17 September. Poland was split into two zones, one occupied by Germany while the eastern provinces fell under the control of the Soviet Union.
The new Poland emerged 20% smaller by 77,500 square kilometers (29,900 sq mi). The shift forced the migration of millions of people, most of whom were Poles, Germans, Ukrainians, and Jews.

ZSE-E de wegrzyn
The old marking system used up to the early 1990s was:
5 (very good)
Getting a 2 meant that the student would have to repeat the year (in all subjects).
Grades 3 and higher were passing grades.
In the early 1990s the system was extended by introducing new grades, 1 and 6.
2 (initially poor)
5 (very good)
1 is the failing grade, 2 to 5 are normal grades, and 6 is for grades that exceed the expectations.
Getting a 1, the student has to double the year, including all subjects that were passed.
For the same reason, the grades, are only given in the subjects deemed the most important (like Polish language or mathematics).
The Polish alphabet
The university-level education uses a numeric system of grades from 2 to 5, with 0.5.
The grading is done every semester (twice a year).
Depending on the subject, the final grade may be based on the results of an exam, or the student's performance during semester.
