Thanks a lot!
Are you just studying these?
Ive got my exam coming up for varna and I'm so nervous. Im averaging around 75% in the mock sample tests, would this be a strong score? i know that if you get below a 3 in terms of Bulgarian grading, you would not be in the final rankings.

mh I understand. I actually also studying the questions from other universities such as Plovdiv. on bemedi they have all practice questions
I just did my test for varna and it really wasn't so bad. All the questions came from the question bank that the agency i use gave us, and there were no surprises. I'd just say focus on the questions, re do them again and again until you learn how to answer them quickly. Im assuming i got a 6 in chemistry and maybe a 5 in biology, but it could be different

Hey @potentialme, I get where you're coming from, but for me, going deep into biology and chemistry just makes everything click better. Sure, drilling questions can get you faster at answers, but knowing the nuts and bolts of the subjects can help big time, especially when a curveball question comes flying your way.

Also, it helps me remember stuff for longer. If we're not just looking to clear this test but also kill it in our future studies and jobs, this deeper knowledge really pays off. Getting the 'why' behind the 'what' helps us think on our feet, something we're gonna need a lot in medicine.

And don't even get me started on those crazy resit fees. Spending more time now to really get this stuff down could save us from a retake and is gonna give us a leg up throughout our med studies and beyond. It's a marathon, not a sprint, right?

It's kind of like building a house; you need solid groundwork if you want it to stand strong. Same thing here a good grounding in basic science is our best bet for making it through the twists and turns of medicine. Just throwing it out there. Anyway, good luck with the grind!

Yes, Moritz, I totally get you. I want to really study the materials. Biology is a huge part of med studies. My brother studies Med and he is very clear about that.
