    Advertisements
    Our members don't see this ad
    Hi guys,

    I just finished my high school and got accepted to this university, which major in commerce but now i want to study medicine ( i'm thinking of university of Debrecen)

    The reason i want to do basic medicine course first because i have no science background.

    So my question is are there any entrance exam if i just want to get into BMC?

    Thanks for replying.

    Andrew hi, to my knowledge to be admitted in med school you need to take entrance exam, but to get in BMC class, you will need olny high school diploma. But to get the most accurate info its better to get in contact with the school directly:
    University of Debrecen :: Medical School and Health Science Center

    I also suggest to read other threads and posts about Debrecen med school, there are a lot of info about it here.

    Getting into the BMC course is very easy (you already said you got admitted, didn't you?). However, since you don't have a solid science background, the first 2 years (1st and 2nd of the 6 years ) are going to be extremely difficult for you. And this is even assuming that you managed to make it through the BMC (yes, people DO repeat the BMC!).
    So why am I being too negative? For one, there are some subjects in first year that lend themselves too much to the understanding of basic science subjects like physics and chemistry (for example Biophysics). Even for those who did physics and chemistry in high school, Biophysics is hard enough. You'll be at a disadvantage here. Second, a lot of subjects in higher years have Biophysics as a prerequisite. Third, and perhaps the most challenging, is that you will have to rely a lot on self-study here. Lacking a solid science foundation only compounds the situation.
    But, everything is doable once the determination is there. If you find yourself slow on catching up, you could pay for some extra tuition (mostly given by fellow students) even if it is just to pass the 1st year courses [Biophysics, Molecular Bio., Organic Chemistry, Biochemisty (2nd year) etc]. Generally, with unwavering doggedness later courses can be aced w/out prior thorough knowledge in the sciences (eg Anatomy, Physiology etc).
    In summary, you should look beyond the BMC and see what lies ahead. And trust me, a LOT lies.
    Good luck in your endeavours.

    Hi everybody
    The things you just mentioned are very interesting. I actually have a question concerning this BMC: I'm planning on applying to Uni of Debrecen for this September as well.
    The thing is that I graduated from high school (Europe) last summer and studied bio in an US college for 1 semester (did really well, but dropped out after I realized that it's much harder for an international student to get into med school in the US than in Europe). I took bio and mathematics until the end of high school, but dropped chem and physics after 10th grade. I started studying for the entrance exam that Debrecen offers and it's actually going really well. I'm determined to try and pass the exams.
    What's your opinion on this? Would I be able to take the BMC for a year if I fail the entrance exam?

    Hi Clementine00,
    At the entrance exam you can reach a maximum of 300 points (at the oral part of the exam). If you reach at least 40% on the written test (multiple choice test on all three exam subjects) you can go for the 1st year on the oral part where you have to reach minimum 240 points (if I can remember correctly, but if you check their website you can find there the Rules and regulations that tells you exactly what are the minimum requirements for the first year or BMC). For BMC I guess you need 150 points out of the 300.

    Don't stress too much about the entrance exam. It isn't really that hard as long as your basics are clear. But be prepared to toil very hard once you do get past the BMC and first semester. You'll be fine if you are prepared to put in loads of effort and don't mind having an almost non existent social life. Good luck!

    Hi, everyone. My case is pretty much like Clementine00. I am 24. Finished my high school in Hong Kong a few years ago, then I went to US to study Health Science in a college last year, but just found that international students are almost impossible to study medicine in US. Therefore, I have decided to transfer to Europe. Now, I am thinking about studying BMC in Debrecen in order to get a place in the medicine programme next year.

    Here are the questions.

    I was told that BMC don't have any entrance exam? Isn't it true?

    And do you guys have any opinions about studying in Debrecen?

    Since you already have a background in science, I'd recommend you not to waste your time with the BMC and try to get admission into the first year. Sure it's a good way to get acquainted with the city and settling down here but I think the cons out weigh the pros in this case. Assess all your options before making a choice. Central Europe isn't the worst but there are better places for sure if you search for them.

    Thx! Coz my Health Science courses in US don't include physics, and there was too less Chem. That is why I think I need to take the BMC to make myself to handle the medicine later.

    Um.... would you mind giving me some recommendations about which countries / schools are good for my case? I am not trying to be lazy to search, but just wanna hear someone who know more about the schools in Europe?

    BTW, I have a bit colour weakness (red-green). Is that allowed to study medicine in Europe? Coz I know it is allowed in US, but not quite sure about that in Europe..
