Admission to medical studies : Ministers plan new criteria for medical studies

Who can hope in the future to study medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry or pharmacy? The conference of education Ministers has agreed now, apparently, on new criteria for the award of a nationwide restricted admission courses of study. The state Treaty, the Ministers of education decided on Thursday, before the days of mirror. The rules in the previous state contract, had been tipped two years ago by the Federal constitutional court according to claims of the applicants.
The number of Applicants for the study of medicine has Long been significantly in excess of the number of places available: Last over 43,000 interested applied to be good to 9000 people. The Ministers now want to achieve "quotas and criteria diversity" in the selection "in addition to cognitive skills, practical and social communication skills of Applicants can be taken into account", as you say, in the state of the contract.
Different than in the past to semester, do not wait any longer lead you to the place of study. Previously there was a quota of 20 per cent. To give candidates without a top-of-the Abitur a Chance, but it will be a new fitness rate introduced in which the GPA is irrelevant. You should be ten percent of the seats in the main rate. In the main quota, all the seats will be distributed, which were not awarded in the prior rate. The advance rate of up to 20 percent can be awarded in cases of hardship, students from abroad or students in the second compartment. The Länder may reserve part of this ratio for employed persons without Abitur.
be determined As the candidate for the suitability rate, can define the universities according to the rules of your home country. In the state Treaty study, aptitude tests, an interview, or out-of-school services will be called.

The rate for the baccalaureate is increased best

The proportion of study places are awarded at the baccalaureate, the best, will be increased from the present 20 to a future 30 per cent. The Minister of education cited research that says that GPA predicts academic success well.
Until the high school grades have become the country's borders, by education comparable, to be introduced in a percent-ranking procedure, as it is in the Anglo-American common. Not absolute notes are compared. Rather, the ranking of the applicant with his final grade is determined by the competition of the same Federal country, so whether or not he or she one percent, the Top two percent, etc. of the high school graduates in the country is among the Top.
The Minister of culture, the percent rank method may soon be eliminated. Their measures for the Federal-wide comparability of the baccalaureate should have an effect in 2021, for the first time completely. The countries have exams already in a Pool with a common baccalaureate of tasks, uniform hours of work for the Baccalaureate and uniform standards for the grading of the exams agreed.
About the regular selection procedure of the universities to be awarded as in the past, 60 percent of the seats. In addition to the GPA is not always the result of a study, entrance tests, as well as a second, non-school-based-based criterion should be included. The country adopts a law to introduce the universities sub-quota of up to 15 per cent, in which they have been awarded places and to the grades, or just exclusively according to criteria beyond the school grade.

For the graduation best of the Ortswunsch is no limitation

unlike in the past, the application in the Central application procedure in which the courses to the baccalaureate best and to the applicant on the prior odds to be assigned, is no longer limited to a number of study places. The Federal constitutional court had found the entrance criterion of GPA should not be the priority of the Ortswunsches cancelled. Candidates had a forced tactical Ortswünschen and could afterwards detect because of the lack of transparency of the procedure is hardly, what is the impact of the various criteria on the decision.
In the selection processes of universities, the number of the local preference may be limited to a minimum of six institutions of higher education, as the Federal constitutional court had confirmed. The University, or your country of residence may limit the number of local preference, therefore, is to make the process easier to handle. This is also true for the ten percent suitability rate.

For candidates with waiting semesters there is a two-year transition period

For candidates that have collected according to the existing procedure of waiting a semester, should there be a transitional arrangement. In the procurement process of the summer semester 2020, in which the new rules apply, at the earliest, for the first time, and of the winter semester 2021/2022 a waiting period of 15 semesters or more in the selection is weighted procedures of the universities, with 45 per cent. In the procurement process for the summer semester 2021 and for the winter semester 2021/2022 this waiting time is weighted with 30%. In the case of applicants, the wait for a 15-Semester, the weighting of "linear", as the Minister of education to formulate. Not all Waiting to be granted a place of study.
Distributed in the places online procedures, namely, the dialogue-oriented Service. In order to be and according to the long clearing process to avoid approvals. The Campus Management systems of all higher education institutions would have to be connected to the System. However, there was concern as to whether the technical problems can be quickly resolved, especially if the countries take advantage of the many opportunities in the state contract, to decide their own rules for admission. During a transitional period, such as the weighting of individual grades or selection interviews will not be, therefore, all of the selection criteria of the universities apply.
In the power of the state contract occurs only after the Finance Ministers 'conference, the Prime Ministers' conference, and the parliaments of the 16 countries.
