The computer-based admission test, entirely in English, will take place on 18 May 2024 in attendance, in multi-session mode, at test centres in Italy (Bolzano, Rome, Milan) and abroad. Following the enrolment procedure, each candidate can select the location (Italian or foreign) in which he/she intends to take the test from the list proposed by the University until places are available. The University reserves the right to hold additional sessions at each venue should it become necessary in view of the number of participants.

The test consists of 65 multiple-choice questions:

  • 2 of general culture
  • 20 of logical reasoning
  • 18 of biology
  • 12 of chemistry
  • 8 of physics and mathematics
  • 5 of ethical-religious culture

At the end of the test, each candidate must answer an additional 7 questions in 7 minutes automatically assigned by the test platform (one for each subject). These so-called "reserve" questions will NOT count to the purposes of the ordinary assessment of the test unless, after the scheduled sessions have been held, an anomaly emerges in one or more questions in each subject that would lead to its annulment. Only in this case, once the criticality has been ascertained, the University will consider neutralising it and replacing it with a reserve question relating to the same subject, in order to guarantee the objectivity of the assessments and equal treatment of candidates.

A maximum time of 65 minutes (+ 7 minutes for reserve questions) is allocated for the test. A maximum score of 65 points is awarded for the evaluation of the test according to the following criteria:

  • 1 point for each correct answer
  • Minus 0.25 points for each incorrect answer
  • 0 points for each answer not given

The minimum score required to be eligible for the degree programme must be no less than 20 points out of 65. Those who are placed in the relevant ranking list in order of the available places are declared winners.

The specific prerequisites of the Medicine and Surgery programme include knowledge of English demonstrated by possession of a certificate of a level not lower than the B2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The list of admissible certifications is expressly stated in the competition notice (Art. 8 Registration)
  • This list is exhaustive as to the type of certification admitted and the minimum score required for each
  • Certifications that are not among those listed are in no way taken into consideration
  • The language certificate must be produced when registering for the degree programme, but it is not required for participation in the test

Only candidates who have conducted the entire secondary school course in English may be exempted from producing the language certificate.

In this case, the candidate must produce appropriate certification of the language in which the course of study was delivered at the time of enrolment.

Once you have paid the test participation fee, you can access the TEST Simulator platform free of charge via your registration profile.

The simulator can be used indefinitely by each registered candidate: it contains an archive of approximately 3,000 questions administered by the University in previous years and made available for purely practice purposes.

Questions administered on the day of the test are not extracted from the simulator.
