This paper presents a new strategy to organize the entrance examination at the Universities. It is based on the idea of free movement inside the university, following the interest and success of each student individually. It guarantees in addition that each discipline and department will get students with relevant basic education without any compromises. The strategy is very liberal and gives a student a possibility to choose his/her field by taking into account their own interest, but is then strict with all the requirements set for the education. It will also smooth all compulsory courses, which do not support directly the objective of major studies.
