How to prepare for entrance exam?

Candidates are offered a place at the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, based on their results in our entrance examination. The entrance examination is compulsory for all applicants. It consists of a written multiple-choice test from Biology, Chemistry, and Physics (equally weighted) and MMI (multiple-mini-interviews) for those who successfully pass the written part.

All parts of the entrance examination are in English and supervised by faculty members.

To have a reasonable chance of success (on average, we admit about 10% of all the applicants), it is strongly advised that the candidate studied the disciplines from which the written test is made for at least 2 of the final 4 years at the high school. Our applicants have a very diverse curriculum; however, the one most similar in scope and depth to the requirements for the entrance exam is the British A-level system.
