HUMANITAS TEST: Dates, Places and Modalities

The Humanitas University of Milan, known for its excellence in medical and scientific education, has published the announcement for the HUMAT tests for the 2024/2025 and 2025/2026 academic years!

Humanitas University medicine test – HUMAT

To the surprise of many, the announcement presents little changes compared to the previous year, in which small changes brought it closer to the Italian TOLC MED. The changes introduced in the Humanitas medicine test for 2024, which have been operational since 2023, include:

  • Taking the tests on two separate dates per year, in February and March. Students have the freedom to attend both sessions or only one;
  • The possibility for students from the Italian fourth year of high school to sit for the test. The results obtained in these tests will be recognised and valid for the ranking list of the year in which they graduate;
  • The ranking will be based on the highest score obtained from all the sessions the student participated in, ranging from a minimum of 1 test to a maximum of 4.

For aspiring students, this continuity can be a safety net: they know what to expect and can prepare accordingly without worrying about unexpected changes or new requirements. However, it is always advisable to read every detail of the call for applications carefully, even if the variations are minimal, to ensure you get all the essential information. In conclusion, the Humanitas University of Milan once again confirms its dedication to excellence and transparency in medical and scientific education.

Humanitas medicine test questions 

The HUMAT medicine test at Humanitas will be held online, home-based. Before proceeding, it is essential to prepare yourself: at least two days beforehand, you will have to install the Proctor Exam plugin on Google Chrome, which ensures proper surveillance during the test, and complete a check of your device to ensure that video, audio and connection are optimal. Shortly before the test, you will receive an email with details and instructions for identification, which you must complete one hour before the test. This step also includes a check of your environment. In due time, you will receive the link to start. The test is the same for all candidates regardless of nationality and consists of 60 questions with 4 answer options each, only one of which is correct. The total duration is 2 hours, divided into two sections of 1 hour each: the first on scientific principles and the second on academic comprehension skills.  In detail, the scientific section is divided into:

  • 10 Procedural Thinking questions
  • 10 Mathematical Thinking
  • 10 Visual Thinking.

After completing the first section, you cannot go back. During the test, you may only use two sheets of paper and a pen for notes, which the examiners will check before you begin. The use of telephones, books, notes and headphones will be forbidden. You may not go to the toilet for the duration of the test. Non-compliance with these rules will result in disqualification.
