Read the text and answer the question below:
Ancient Olympic Games The Ancient Olympic Games were held in Greece. It is believed that Heracles was the initiator of the games in honor of the Gods, especially Zeus. The legend says that it was Heracles who first called the Games "Olympic" and established the custom of holding them every four years. The games were a series of competitions held between representatives of several city-states and kingdoms in Ancient Greece. These games featured mainly athletic but also combat and chariot racing events. During the games, all conflicts among the participating city-states were postponed until the games were finished. The Olympic Games reached their zenith in the 6th and 5th centuries BC, but then gradually declined in importance as the Romans gained power and influence in Greece. While there is no scholarly consensus as to when the Games officially ended, the most commonly held date is 393 AD, when the emperor Theodosius I decreed that all pagan cults and practices be eliminated. Another date commonly cited is 426 AD, when his successor, Theodosius II, ordered the destruction of all Greek temples. After the demise of the Olympics, they were not held again until the late 19th century.
The Olympic Games were held again in:
A. the 5th century BC
B. the late 19th century
C. the year 393 AD
D. the year 426 AD
E. the 6th century

Syllabus for entrance examination. Human biology

Biology is the natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy. Biology is a vast subject containing many subdivisions, topics, and theories. Five unifying principles form the fundamental axioms of modern biology: cell theory, evolution, gene theory, energy, and homeostasis.
These fields of human biology are further divided based on the scale at which the organisms are studied and the methods used to study them: human anatomy analyses the morphology of organs, organ systems and of the entire body; biochemistry examines the rudimentary chemistry of life; molecular biology studies the complex interactions of systems of biological molecules, the molecular organization of the cell; genetics analyses the main mechanism, the morphological substrate and the methods used to examine heredity and variability of genetic information; physiology examines the physical and chemical functions of the tissues, organs, and organ systems of an organism; human ontogenesis evaluates the steps of human beings development, from the zygote formation until death.

Premed Israel

Premed  Israel

The Pre-med course for Medical Studies on behalf of the official representation, which has been in operation since 2010, has helped to prepare dozens of students for the admission examinations into the medical school, as well as for the pre-clinical years of their studies. Over the years, the students from the preparatory program were accepted to the university with 100% success and even excelled in their studies.

The preparatory course is considered intensive and demanding.


The purpose of the preparatory course is to enable the student to be accepted and excel in his studies.


Why is it worthwhile to study at pre-med course for Medical Studies?

The course was designed with the unique suitability for the University’s requirements in order to maximize the student's potential for knowledge and provide him with a broad knowledge base in core subjects: physics, chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology.

The unique learning method of the Pre-Med helps pass the entrance exam and of course significantly facilitates the student's pre-clinical years of study.

The language of study in the preparatory program is English, along with explanations in Hebrew, in order to strengthen the knowledge and understanding of the professional terms in the university's language of study.

Past experience shows that graduates of the pre-med course complete the pre-clinical years of their studies with greater success than students who come from other preparatory programs or without preparation at all.

Pre-med program has very high success rates, which are close to 100%.

The preparatory course is characterized by the fact that it fits exactly the needs of the university, according to the changing requirements from year to year, since it is developed from years of didactic experience and teaching.

It is recommended to listen to the opinions of pre-med program past graduates in order to be impressed by its quality.

The cost of the preparatory course is significantly lower than that of other preparatory schools in Israel, taking into consideration the economic burden facing the student and his family.

Life in Moldova

Where will I live?
University provides hostel accommodation immediately after arriving, so is not necessary to look for accommodation. There are 16 hostels with single/double/triple persons in a room accommodation. All hostels are equipped with kitchens, shower-rooms, and other facilities.
The hostels are located closely to academic buildings and some clinics. There are good transport links which assure connection between student's campus and other places in city.
The costs of accommodation range 126-140 Euros  per month depending upon the chosen accommodation.

What special Clothing do I need?
Because of the changing seasons, it is important to be prepared for changing weather. We recommend that clothing be cotton or a blend of cotton with a synthetic fiber for the warmer months, and wool or a blend of wool with a synthetic fiber for the colder months.
