High and Low, just like the sea waves
This year’s score results have seen a couple of changes in non-EU candidates. One of the most distinguished aspects is “COVID-19” effects, which seemingly filtered out some of the “bubbles” created by the “late joining applicants” from some countries. Also, Padova and Siena have seen quite an increase of average score range of their “applicants,” apart from the accepted ones. Therefore, the simple “high and low” scores as well as our “adjusted average” scores of each program seem to be more flattened than previous years.
Furthermore, for the majority of the universities, the non-EU test takers are strongly recommended to aim to score more than 50 points just to be on the safe side. Also, those universities with “lower” threshold scores of non-EU have witnessed “gradually increasing” tendency for the last 5 years, approximately.
Even though we do NOT consider some other important statistical figures such as standard deviation due to “statistically small” size of each university application data with non-EU students, one can easily consider “outliers” in terms of the “lowest/threshold” scores of each university, and this may alarm those who probably estimate “the preparatory efforts” to successfully take the IMAT, by assuming “General Knowledge” may work “for me” on the day of the exam.
