Applicants take a written multiple-choice test in Biology, Physics, Chemistry (3 x 20 questions) and logic (15 questions) corresponding to standard secondary school curricula. The entrance exam topics and examples of the questions are available on our website. Applicants have 90 minutes to complete the test. Each question in Biology, Physics and Chemistry is presented with four possible answers, unlike Logic which has only one correct answer. Three points are awarded if all correct answers to the question are selected and all incorrect answers remain unselected. No points are awarded if there is a discrepancy between the final selection and the correct answer. The total number of points that can be acquired for the written test is 225. Completed written tests are marked anonymously.
Second part: Interview
Applicants with the best-written test results according to the dean’s decision are subsequently invited for the interview. Examination committees consist of three faculty members. Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate their interest in the field of study, their ability to discuss medicine-related topics, and they should be able to defend their opinions. Applicants randomly draw two discussion questions/topics for which up to 60 points can be obtained.

The applicants with the highest scores are admitted for studies. According to the capacity of the faculty, the total number of admitted applicants (maximum 90) and the corresponding minimum score limit are set. The applicants with a total score at or above the minimum score limit are accepted. The Dean of the faculty may review the acceptance/non-acceptance decision and accept additional applicants.
