A record number of students – 433, to be exact – have registered to take the admissions test to enter the University of Iceland’s programs in medicine and physiotherapy, RÚV reports. There has never before been such a large group of applicants to these programs.
Three hundred and forty-four students have registered to take the medical program entrance exam, which is an increase of 21 students over last year. The physiotherapy program has 99 applicants, which is only one more than last year. All of the applicants take the same test.
The medical program will admit 60 students; 35 students will be admitted to physiotherapy. How many students are admitted to each program depends on how many residency spots are open in hospitals.
