Ive got an exam for Prague Uni on June 4th at Imperial College London, had a look at the example papers and they look pretty hard. And its 4 hour exam!!!

Does anyone have any clue about this exam, or what to expect on that day, they didnt really give much away on the letter. Will there be an interveiw? Its bad timing, i have to revise for this now as well as my A lvls. Also what are we supposed to wear? Any help..

I sat the exam back in 2002 at Nottingham Uni for 2003 entry when I was at Medsim, it's not too bad, just like doing A level stuff, if you got above X% then you had an interview it wasn't too informal by UK med school standards,they offered the places out before the weekend finished. Have you looked on their website I assume it's Charles University you are talking about? Sorry cann't be of anymore help cos I rejected their offer. Don't know if things will have changed much over the years.

i took the entrance exam for Charles University Prague at Medsim last year, basically it was 3 multiple choice papers, one each on bio, chem and physics covering stuff from the A level syllabuses for each, you had to get above 50% i think for an interview which for me was only 3 questions i think and they gave me the offer right then (was only my back up tho) their offers are conditional only on completing your a levels

No one ever fails. The main resaon for the exam is for them to make money, not act as a filter...

As I understand it European med schools take on a lot more students but slash numbers drastically based on performance in first year.

Indeed - with pass marks of 80%!

The biggest 'exit' point for UK students on courses such as Pragues is in between pre-clinical and clinical. The course might be taught in English, but you have to be fully fluent in the local lingo, and pass an exam to prove so, else you can't do clinicals (you can't expect all your patients to speak English )

i really don't mean to be a wet blanket, but you/ypour parents will be better off pissing money down a drain.

few english students complete the course, and those who do are poorly rated in the NHS.

Prague - the university for the impatient pupil.

There isn't a medical school in the UK that would allow you to transfer straight to clinicals [GMC regs]. You would be expected to apply through UCAS and start back in year 1.
