The exam consists of a written test and an oral test, both required. The written test includes 60 questions, each with five possible answers and only one correct, to be completed in 120 minutes. In the evaluation of the written test, the following scores are assigned:
• 1 for each correct answer
• 0 for any failure to reply
• -0.25 for each wrong answer
To be admitted to the oral exam, a student must have obtained a minimum of 36/60 in the written test. The final score is a weighted average of written and oral test outcomes.
Exam registration must be done online, while examinations take place in the classroom located in Clinica Ematologica, inside Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo.
There are 4 exam sessions in an academic year (January-February, June-July, September, and December), overall with 6 exam dates (2 in January-February, 2 in June-July, 1 in September, and 1 in December)
