Can I take entrance exams at several Med Unis?

Do school grades or the grade on the school-leaving certificate count for the entrance exam?
No, Austria does not have a numerus clausus policy, so grades from school do not have any influence on the awarding of places in a degree program. All that counts is the number of points earned on the MedAT-H/Z.
