    entrance exam in pecs and semmelweis

    Advertisements



    Hey everyone,

    I'll be writing entrance exams for medicine in university of pecs and semmelweis in a week. I'm really worried because i really want to study in hungary. can someone please tell me a little bit about the exams and interview? how difficult are they? and when do you get to know if you're accepted or rejected?

    thanks a lot!

    pecs accept students much easier than semmelweis and they give you the results 2 week after entrance exam the written part is not hard if you studied high school materials but oral exam depends on your luck some examiners are easygoing some of them ask you something out of books try to wear formal clothes and be prepared about some general questions like why you want to be a doctor or what is your hobbies . i think you better avoid pecs i have some friend that study in pecs and half of them dismissed from university other half trying to transfer to semmelweis the city is small and there is a higher chance of dismissal than other universities as i heard 90 percent of students have failed in chemistry last year and one more think if you do well in interview they usually tell you about that but dont ask them about interview because even if you failed the exam they will tell you what you want to hear

    actually, in chemistry 1 the failure rate was above 60%. In chemistry 2 the failure rate (including prescheduled exam in August was again a little bit above 50%. In biochemistry 1 (2012-2013) the failure rate was above 70% (similar to biochemistry 1 2011-2012)

    Does this also apply in University of Debrecen? And why do so many students fail?

    in biochemistry 1 90 percent failed last year but after exam period they add another exam date and decreased the rate a little bit and about debrecen i heard biophysics department is a true pain in the *** like chemistry department in pecs . and i heard bad things about dentistry program in both universities (it seems they have nightmarish professors in their dental departments and they dont teach you too much because there is not enough patients in their
    hospital for all of students) but in medicine program after second year you can call your self doctor

    the usual: some dont study enough or dont know how to, others get unlucky. The students had accumulated a descent amount of past papers over the years (and frankly just studied from those only) so the dpt decided to change the questions (and the course directory) in a new format. New questions implies new way of thinking (harder questions) that unfortunately was not carried into the lecture room. The thing is they dont even prepare you in the lectures for those exams. They just show up at the lecture rooms, play their tape, so its up to you to memorize everything. Sure someone might argue that, hey, 15% passed all their exams and had time for Christmas break. I really dunno.
    @someonecrazy over here you are considered a doctor only after the pharma final (7th semester), though it is true that from Patho final 2013 all Patho 1 topics were removed (cca 180)
