UniCamillus organizes admission test preparatory courses.
During the course, participants receive a training in the test topics:
o Logical reasoning, problem solving and reading comprehension;
o Scientific subjects (biology, chemistry, maths and physics);
o The specific Humanitarian mission of the university.
The course will also focus on the psychological aspects of the test, helping the candidate to take it with higher self-confidence, managing his emotions and enhancing his potential. The admission test topics are listed in the Annex A of the Call for Application for the Medicine and Surgery Degree course.
It is a written test made up by 90 multiple choice questions in English. The topics are listed in the Annex A of the Call for Application for the Medicine and Surgery Degree course and are subdivided as follows:
• 40 questions about logical reasoning, problem solving and reading comprehension;
• 30 questions on scientific subjects (biology, chemistry, maths and physics);
• 20 questions regarding the specific Humanitarian mission of the university.
The test lasts 100’ (minutes).
Each candidate can reach a maximum of 90 (ninety) points according to the following criteria:
– 1 point for each correct answer;
– minus 0,25 point for each wrong answer;
– 0 points for any answer not given or multiple, or for all ambiguous responses.
Some of the admission test could regard the specific humanitarian mission of UniCamillus. It could happen only if cited in the specific “Call for Admission” document. The main topics:
“… relevant issues for the lack of health professionals in many developing countries, pathologies spread in these countries, international bodies tasked with facing humanitarian problems, leading figures who have contributed to these fields and inherent topics. The required competence on these issues is not specific: a mere knowledge deriving from reading newspapers and other media which provide updated news on these topics will be sufficient. In other words these questions will be aimed to bring to light the interest of the candidates towards the above mentioned topics; where such interest exists, the candidates will probably have read and delve into these issues, although on an informative and not specialized basis.”
In other words, a thorough knowledge is not required. It is highly valued the interest, the inquisitiveness, the attention of the candidate to the sanitary issues in the Developing Countries, the humanitarian policies and the activities implemented by the international community.
A list of relevant references useful to understand and get involved in the abovementioned issues is shown below.
