Important information – We recommend using a desktop computer or laptop with the ZOOMus application installed for the written part of the exam. Some types of devices require special settings to simultaneously enable the transmission of the camera image (exam participant’s image) and the desktop image. In our experience, especially Ipads and Iphones. Please check at least one day before the exam if your device allows simultaneous transmission of information from the camera and the desktop.
In addition you can try previous Biology questions in Kahoot application
The interview is individual (candidate and MUG Admision Committee – at least two members). Estimate time for interview 20 minutes per candidate.
