Depends on which agency you are using since my agency doesn’t allow the sharing of resources :frown:
How do you feel about it btw? I am kinda nervous even tho the exam is still months away it’s my last shot at dentistry this year
I feel like if I study hard enough during the 2 month break i might get it i dont know the stakes for med are higher than dentistry like getting a 17.5 is out of the question it sounds really hard but i do know questions are repeated and most ppl overestimate the exam so rn im underestimating it but don't worry you'll get in just do everything you can find that may help you and im pretty sure your agency will have crash courses join them even if you feel like its a waste of time from what ive heard its just about being overconfident with the exam im going through medconnect so I was just asking anyone who is going to Sofia MU really.

You have to join an agency I believe if you want resources for the entrance exam.

they say they check bio and chem but its most likely your entrance exam that they only check

This year your bio and chem marks matter because it just got very competitive, because of the war in Ukraine students are now switching to Bulgaria for study and Sofia announced that they only have 34 places for non-eu students, so I don’t think anyone with less than an A in bio and chem is getting in unless they get 100% on all entrance exams

34 places for Non EU students who are applying for dental.
70 places for Non EU students applying for medicine.

No literally same, I don’t even know what to expect for this exam and I want to know what they score it on because the Sofia mu website says they factor the entrance test results for the 3 sections as well as alevels in biology and chemistry. But other people are saying they only factor the entry results so I’m confused 😭 - also I’m with medconnect too

Hey, I’m going with medconnect and applying to Sofia MU and I’m curious as to if the questions that medconnect provide for the entrance exam are similar or the exact papers that Sofia uses for the exam because I’ve heard that they just recycle questions from past papers but idk if the medconnect past papers for Sofia are identical to the test.
