Hello I am a bit confused about how the cut off score for the entrance exam works I heard last year that it was 17.5/18 which is really high but I know that the entrance exam isn’t that hard.
What I don’t understand is how they take your A-level grades into account and if they do at all?

I am applying directly to Sofia Medical university. Application form and other document should be sent in person or they accept by post/email?

Heyy I am thinking of giving my entrance exams this year, do they check our previous year marks bio/chem or is the ranking based on just our entrance exam result.

It’s 50:50 for Sofia but other unis might take it more into consideration than grades, however because of the war in Ukraine this year is seriously competitive and you probably won’t get in with anything below B, ask the company u r applying through tho they know best

Yes your agency should have already told you this
What was the exam like, how were the English questions, same as the resources or new?

How did the exam take place? Google classroom and a website or did you have to download an app or software to do the exam?

Do you have any tips on revision to ensure a top grade?

Do they view and lock your screens for the exam?

I got my acceptance letter a few days ago but I'm not sure how to enrol/register to the uni. Does anyone know the process? Or like what documents are needed

My agency confirmed that the Sofia mu take both entrance exam results and our alevel results combined to create a grade. The max grade is 30. So you need between 3-6 points for all 3 sections in biology, chemistry, and English and 3-6 points for biology and chemistry alevels.
6: A* 5: A 4:B 3: C
How did everyone find the sofia mu entrance exam today?
do you guys reckon if you only got one question wrong out of all 3 exams you're likely to get in? Idk if I should start looking at a place to stay thats why

Yes, you will get in even if you get a few questions wrong but as long as you didn’t get all the questions wrong then you’re fine.
