Changemaker: Abeelan Rasadurai Country of Implementation: Switzerland

Medical students in Switzerland have to undergo a rigorous one-day selection exam in order to be eligible to

study medicine.

From the official side, there is not enough exam preparation material to adequately prepare for this

important selection process. Private companies often take advantage of this insufficiency by appealing

to students with expensive exam preparation courses and booklets, often indicating that those commercial

resources are essential in order to pass the preselection exam.

A group of medical students wants to change that. NCWiki is a project to provide all the information and

exercises as open-source material for future medical candidates. Financial status should not play a role in

being selected to study medicine in Switzerland.
