They will get 1 point for each correct answer in Pharmaceutical Botany, Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry, Human Physiology and Pathophysiology, Biochemistry and Pathological Biochemistry, and Analytical Chemistry. Students will obtain points only for correct answers. They will get 0,5 points for each correct answer in the English language test.  In case the candidate does not answer or misspells any question, points will not be deducted.
