Admission Requirements

Each tests will take 30 minutes.
- oral exam compulsory from Biology and  Physics/Chemistry.

If the result of the applicant’s written exam is below 40% (each), the applicant can only be admitted to the Basic Medicine Course on the basis of his/her oral exam results, even if the oral exam results would allow admission to the first year.

The maximum score of the oral examination is 300 points.
