Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruption of education systems, from elementary and secondary schools to colleges and universi­ties. This situation also affects the education conditions at the Slovak Uni­versity of Agriculture in Nitra. Teaching process has been transferred from full-time to distance learning in virtual space. The main goal of the paper was to analyze how students of economics study programs mastered math­ematical topics in conditions of distance learning. Correlation coefficient and Mann-Whitney U test were used to identify relations and significance of differences between points obtained in preliminary written assignments as well as the overall study results. In both research groups, taught in Slo­vak and English, results showed strong correlations between the number of points in exam test and the total number of points. In the English taught group the second strong correlation was confirmed between the total num­ber of points and the points sum for all preliminary assignments
