Doctor Poo?

Maybe, once. :-) The PhD thesis is a bit more further, but absolutorium is the goal till June.

Is the absolutorium a key "preliminary defence" exam done around halfway through the PhD process? (In Brazil we call that qualficação/qualification.)

PhD absolutorium (University of Miskolc):

6 successful semesters:
8 exams (for example, Physical Chemistry was one of them)
8 other courses of research, ended by a written study of 10-25 pages (literature collection, measurement evaluation etc.)
definite amount and level of publication
definite amount of teaching students
4 semesters of research at the Department
three end-term presentations (oral) and report (written)

After PhD absolutorium:

second language exam (for me, it will be German)
two papers published in journals with Impact Factor (one in Hungarian, one in English)
a master exam called "szigorlat" (complex exam of all related scientific topics)
PhD dissertation with at least 3-4 theses
PhD dissertation defence

I think it is not a "preliminary defence" yet, but it is around halfway according to my observation of other students/would-be-doctors.

It is slightly different indeed. For the programs I am familiar with here there isn't necessarily such a large list of mandatory things to be done and there is a single major examination/presentation to a panel of professors halfway through.

That is a typical Hungarian feature...

When you drive home from abroad (Germany and Czech Republic) without a driving license (having lost it, got a piece of toilet paper from the Prague Hungarian embassy which is totally invalid for driving), you just start to feel that before university exams, you wasn't really afraid enough of being failed...  :-X
