Abstract

Spatial abilities are becoming an increasingly important predictor of success, especially in professions that balance analytical and creative thinking, such as architecture, especially with the increasing presence of digital media and technology, and the importance of the spatial presentation of one’s ideas. There are differing opinions as to whether these abilities can be improved, or whether a spatial thinking strategy can be developed. At the Faculty of Architecture and Geodesy in Banja Luka (FACEG), spatial abilities have long been part of the entrance exam, and this paper will address the analysis of preparatory teaching at FACEG in this area and the success of the entrance exam for two groups of candidates - those who attended preparatory classes and those who prepared independently.
