Exemptions from the entrance examination

In addition to transfers from other universities exemption from the entrance examination can be obtained if an equivalent of the British A-level certificate can be provided with high scores in Biology and Chemistry. If only one of these subjects has been completed satisfactorily, an entrance examination from the other subject only, is possible. Moreover, the basic study section of French veterinary schools (“Classe Preparatoire BCPST”) also entitles the applicant to be accepted without an entrance examination.
