About the exam
The applicants are allowed to participate in a maximum of two examinations during one application period, if the chance is offered by the University of Szeged.
The Entrance Examination consists of a written and an oral part in Biology, Chemistry and English Language. (In case of examinations hosted by the Admissions Office, University of Szeged Physics might be chosen instead of Chemistry.)
Absence from the entrance exam without a previous withdrawal is considered a used exam chance without valuable result.
- The examination is conducted on the University’s online testing platform Coospace. If the candidate participates in the test from home (not at the host’s venue), the exam will be monitored via Zoom.
- There is a time limit to the test. Students will have 120 minutes to complete it. There is no time limit set by question and you will see only one question at a time.
- Each test contains three sections: 20 multiple-choice Biology questions, 20 multiple-choice Chemistry questions, 60 English Language questions (General and Medical English).
- The questions are multiple-choice questions. You will have to select one answer out of the 4-5 choices given for each question. When you have selected the answer you can go forward to the next question. It is only possible to move to the next question, moving backward to a former question is NOT possible. It is only possible to move forward to the next question if you have selected an answer. The „No answer” choice cannot be chosen. The system will ask you to click ’OK’ every time you would like to move forward with the questions.
- Each correct answer equals 1 point. (No points will be deducted if you give a wrong answer.)
