So I was following minimum entry scores for each medical university in recent years and I noticed a huge change for some universities!
for instance, the minimum score required for Non-EU students at the University of Padua (Padova) was 48 in 2019 and just this year (2020) it dropped down to 27.5!
And of course, some Universities increased their minimum score, like the University of Torino which it’s minimum score in 2019 was 36.6 and it increased to 44 this year (2020).
So what are the main factors determining these scores anyway? How can someone tell what it would be the next year?
It’s an important question cause a Non-EU student only has one chance to select a university and we want to compare our scores at IMAT to the minimum required but the unpredictability of it makes the job a lot harder!
What are your thoughts?!..

I think COVID influenced the scores this year. I wouldn’t count on the scores of 2020. I think it is better to be prepared for similar scores like 2019 + some points.

Every year scores change because everything changes, from the difficulty of the test itself, to the number of people trying, to how many students consider the Italian option as their first, or second, or even backup possibility.
If Italy is your dream place to study and you want to be sure to pass, the safest choice is the one with the most places reserved to Extra-EU students. Also, Avoid Milan, as it has few places and it’s very requested.
About IMAT, just do the best you can, without looking at scores of the past years. If you’ll be above most of the other competitors, you’ll be in no matter what.
