The BFE is the clone of the "BNE-SIDES" used by all students of French medical faculties to prepare for ECNi.


With several thousand hours of training, the French Training Bank (BFE) allows students from European and non-European faculties to train on the same content as students from French faculties preparing for the computerized National Classing Examinations. (ECNi) organized each year by France.

More than a training bank, the BFE is a real digital assistant to support students in ECNi training or to complete their face-to-face training.

Many features developed by the UNESS International teams make it possible to monitor performance, replay questions, deepen knowledge, print question sets and student responses, etc.
