Study Medicine In English In Italy – IMAT 2021 Online Course
EnterMedSchool’s IMAT Course – a Warm Welcome
Hello everyone! My name is Ari Horesh, and I am a 2nd-year medical student at the University of Pavia, Italy. Welcome to my IMAT Exam course! As a medical student myself, I am aware of the monopoly that exists in the market and the lack of order and affordable courses and study materials. When I decided to study medicine and chose Italy, I immediately started searching for an online course that will cover all of the exam material. I was under the impression that to study medicine in English in Italy and pass the IMAT exam, you have to pay for a preparation course, and without one, you’ll most likely fail.
After registering to one myself, I realized how possible it is for everyone who is serious and wants to study medicine in Italy is to self-study for this exam.
Ever since I am a medical aspirant, I am working full time (while studying medicine) on this project, and after 2 years of hard work, collaboration with multiple institutions (such as Rice University, USA), reqruiting dozens of volunteers and collecting donations from amazing and generous people with the same mindset as we have here on EnterMedSchool – I was able to work on the most comprehensive online IMAT course that is available today, and release it to the public for free.
When I initiated the non-profit project “EnterMedSchool,” I had no idea how big it would get. However, last year (2020), we ran a free crash course zoom class (12-hour marathon before the IMAT exam), and we helped thousands of students from all over the world take and pass the IMAT exams. I actually have a couple of friends that used EnterMedSchool themselves last year!
After more than two years of working on the biggest project in my life, I am more than excited to announce the official beta release of the most comprehensive IMAT course available today.
I would like to thank the Patrons and donors for helping us reaching so far.
This IMAT Course was written by medical students who have passed the exam and enrolled in the most competitive medical schools in Italy, and it is absolutely FREE.
What Is The IMAT Exam?
IMAT stands for International Medical Admission Test, it is the entrance exam for Italian public medical schools. The exam is in English as it is composed by a British company called Cambridge Assessment, visit their website to learn more information. If you wish to study medicine in Italy, in English, you must take the IMAT and generate a competitive score that will be the sole basis of your admission to the program. The score on this exam determines the success of the application. Therefore, it is crucial to obtain a high score. However, before we jump into studying, let’s first learn about the nature of the exam.
IMAT Exam Structure
The format of the exam is 60 multiple choice questions with 5 possible answers for all questions. The length of the exam is 100 minutes. There are no calculators, dictionaries or any other aids allowed for the exam.
IMAT Exam Format
The IMAT exam has five sections: Logical reasoning, general knowledge, biology, chemistry, and math/physics.
– General Knowledge = 12 questions
– Logical Reasoning = 10 questions
– Biology = 18 questions
– Chemistry = 12 questions
– Math/Physics = 8 questions (combined)
The IMAT exam is quite similar to a high-school’s standard level exams. In the course we will cover all of the topics of the exam. Along the course you will see that we study the subject in further detail than is required for the exam, but it will allow you to develop a strong grasp on the knowlednge requiered, and also to cover some of the content you will study during your first semester in medical schools in Italy.
Is this course sufficient to study for the IMAT exam?
Yes. While studying solely from this course is not something you are likely to do during your preparation, the course covers all IMAT topics (but math, which will be ready before IMAT 2022). We highly suggest using our study planner from 2020, which will allow you to follow pages from Pearson’s Biology and Chemistry books along this course. Using our course together with specific YouTube video that we reccomend along the course and Pearon’s books, will definetly help you prepare for the IMAT exam efficiently.
How is this course structured?
Our IMAT Course is composed out of 120 Lessons. Each lesson is divided into different topics, containing youtube videos, explanations, and a summary of the topic. At the end of each lesson, you will find some practice questions that we either wrote ourselves or sources from similar exams and open-source books.
How can I study for the IMAT using this course?
To study for the IMAT exam using this course, you should choose any subject and study it in the same order we organized the course. We highly suggest starting from Biology and Logical thinking. After reading a topic, make sure to read the equivalent pages from Pearson’s book using the IMAT study guide. We will also suggest specific videos and YouTube channels you can supplement your studies with. In the future, we will publish flashcards (Anki) for the IMAT exam as well.
What should I do after completing all lessons?
After completing all lessons and the relevant pages from the books we mentioned, you should start practicing the questions of similar exams. The BMAT exam is a similar exam that we recommend sourcing questions from. Luckily for you, we sourced all BMAT past papers questions (and more exams) and organized them so that it will be easy for you to solve a specific set of questions every day and manage your time before the exam.
After solving BMAT questions, all “Daily dose of knowledge” quizzes, and the questions that we offer as well, you should proceed to our IMAT Simulators.
