    It can be difficult to progress into the next year because its difficult to pass exams. They don't have any real standard that they use to calculate grades. The exams are oral based and it all depends on how much the teacher thinks you know. For some teachers, if you can't answer two or three questions, they will fail you. There can be a lot of bias too.

    Their standards of a pass grade are too high IMO.

    you have to be willing to work really hard to ensure that you pass all your exams and are able to progress into the next year.
    Well done, you've just described "university".

    But for many teachers a pass would be like 70% or 80%. Their standards are really high. It can be quite absurd.
    Sounds like medical school in the UK then. None of my exams had a 50% pass mark either.

    I doubt there's a reputable medical school anywhere which will allow you to progress with 30-40% (which you can do with non-medical degrees).

    In all honesty, it isn't a terrible place but you have to be willing to work really hard to ensure that you pass all your exams and are able to progress into the next year.

    I will warn you that for some teachers a pass is not really a 'pass'.
    For example, a pass is usually 50%, meaning if you know the basics you are qualified to attain a pass grade. But for many teachers a pass would be like 70% or 80%. Their standards are really high. It can be quite absurd.

    You've got written exams though, right?

    Perhaps it's just the exam style that I disagree with then.Even if you get most questions right, some of the teachers still fail you for not being able to answer a few other questions. They have no standard that they judge by. They just do whatever they feel like doing.

    You have OSCE examinations, which account for more and are much harder to pass.
    At my uni, pass mark is not known on the day of the exam and is adjusted based on groups performance (for example it can be 20/25 or 15/25, depending how well we do). It has criteria such as 'showed empathy', 'treated patient with respect' etc which are very hard to assess objectively so two people doing the exact same thing might get different scores.

    Hey could you message me answers to these questions I have? I want to apply for Medicine in Pleven but I'm skeptical about the University:1) How is the overall studying of Medicine over there? How organised is it and how well is the curriculum in terms of studying it at Pleven?2) What are you enjoying so far at Pleven and what do you dislike so far?3) How is the city? The expenses, the lifestyle, the weather?4) What happens when students fail? Do they give them opportunities?
