The requirements for the Programmes in Medicine and Dental Medicine in English for the 2018 admission tests in Chemistry and Biology will consist of FIVE sections:
Section A: Multiple-Choice Questions
Four proposed answers will be given for every question, as candidates should mark only ONE answer. All questions carry equal marks. If the candidate marks more than one answer, he/she will receive NO MARKS for that question. No marks will be deducted for wrong answers.

The candidates will be asked to match each item from column 1 with those given in column 2.
Section D: True/False Questions
These questions require a candidate to assess whether the presented statement is true or false.
