2024 Medical Exam, the test is postponed. What happens now

This text discusses the upcoming changes to the university admission test in Italy. The Ministry of Education has prepared a new format for this year’s test, but the final guidelines will be announced by the end of the month or in early February. The recent administrative court rulings have declared last year’s test and ranking as illegitimate, affecting the enrollment of 3500 applicants.

Those who have already enrolled for the 2023/24 academic year based on the previous ranking will be able to continue their studies, while those excluded may have to retake the test. The Ministry is awaiting further court rulings before finalizing the preparations for this year’s test, which may include two exam sessions and changes to the format. The Minister of Education is also considering a significant overhaul of the admission test system for the following year, aiming to make it more transparent by introducing a multiple-choice test with questions drawn from a database.

Additionally, the Ministry is exploring the possibility of implementing a “filter period,” allowing prospective medical students to attend specific courses before taking the admission test. The universities are also emphasizing the need for a sustainable access and scheduling system, with a focus on ensuring the quality of future doctors. These proposed changes are currently under discussion and subject to further developments.
