Upon payment of the €160, you will receive the link to an online simulator to prepare for the Entrance Exam. The online simulator consists of approximately 3,000 questions from past exams, included as examples. The questions covered by the written exam will not be extracted from the simulator.

Selexi, long term institutional partner of Università Cattolica, has created two online preparatory courses for students interested in applying for our Medicine and Surgery Entrance Exam.

Both courses will be offered live online so you can engage with the facilitators and professors in real time.

  • Intensive Course
    This course is best suited for students who are feeling confident with their knowledge of the following subjects evaluated on the Entrance Exam: logic, problem solving and text comprehension, biology, chemistry, physics and general knowledge.
    The Intensive Course is 30 hours (from Monday to Friday) and focuses mostly on exercises and techniques aimed at preparing students to effectively tackle the test, both in a subject-specific way and in the context of the whole exam. It helps in developing solving effectiveness and speed. 
  • Strengthening Course
    The Strengthening Course is 48 hours (on Saturdays and Sundays) and it is recommended for students who need to spend time studying the theory of the subjects that make up the test: logic, problem solving and text comprehension, biology, chemistry, physics and general knowledge.
    This course is accompanied by practice exercises that include a more extensive preparation process.
