    I appeared here in Gabarone for the first faculty exam and got through.It is a multiple choice exam and you answer physics or maths ,chemistry and biology.It is slightly more advanced than school exam.I wrote the Independent board here in SA.I am presently in my second year BSc so it helped I guess.There are sample papers on the site and the syllabus too.
    I have been reading this forum for the passed few days and I would like some help from shrey as he is an old established member and an old student.
    I am coming from SA ...how are the schools compared to SA and what are my chances after I qualify to work in Europe and the US?
    Is the czeck you learn in first year etc enough for clinicals?

    Thanks

    A little bit of information on the exam

    For those asking about what % you need on the exam, this information is on the LF1 website, please check it.

    Below is some information I wrote down from the exam in Prague on June 15 2011:


    Format of the Exam

    Duration = 2 hours
    All questions are multiple choice
    4 sections: Biology (compulsory), Chemistry (compulsory), Physics or Maths (You choose only 1 of these)
    Biology (20 questions), Chemistry (20 questions), Physics (15 questions)

    The professor told us there was always at least one correct answer and there could also be 2,3,4 or all the answers correct.

    For example, the answer to question 1 could be just only "b" but the answer to question 2 could be "a" "c" and "d".


    What the faculty provides you with

    Blue/black pen
    One piece of A4 'scribble' paper
    Exam booklet (contains all 4 tests)
    Answer sheet
    calculator (ONLY if you are taking the maths section)

    Given that Gabarone, is located on the African continent, I assume SA = South Africa.

    Do the practice test from 2007

    In 2011, I think you needed 55-60 correct answers out of 90. More likely it was 55 but I can't exactly remember. Either way, it's a pretty generous requirement.

    Have anyone done the test and could tell me something useful about it?
    There is a previous (practice test) test on the website with answers. You should do this and make sure you understand every question. They will probably repeat a few of the questions on the exam this year.

    Also, I would recommend you bring a 1 page printout of periodic table of elements. A few students told me AFTER the test that you were allowed to bring one in with you.

    Don't sweat too much in regards to the 3rd faculty entrance test. It's much easier than the 1st faculty entrance test. Quite a few students who failed to get into the 1st faculty were accepted at the 3rd faculty. Having said that, I think 1/2 of the class was accepted into the 3rd faculty when I took the exam so quite a few people still failed.
