"If someone resits a test or examination, they take it again, usually because they failed it the first time."

"if you retake a course or examination, you take it again because you failed it the first time."
(From "Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner's English Dictionary)

So, pehaps:

'sat the examination for a second time'

and add a translator's note to explain that under the current Matura examination system in Poland, it is not possible to sit the advanced examination without having first sat the basic examination, even if that exam has been taken and passed in a previous examination session.
