MDANZ exam questions Part II

The AMSS conducted a survey asking for student opinion regarding the use of the Medical Deans Australia and New Zealand (MDANZ) MCQs and how they wish to be incorporated in exams. The results showed a roughly even split between the two options of a single 4 hour MCQ paper and a separate 1 hour MDANZ paper in addition to the 3 hour MCQ. Attached is the report detailing these results.

Following this the faculty has elected to deliver the MDANZ questions in a separate paper. They are now seeking feedback whether students prefer the exam to be:

  1. On the same day as the MCQ/SCT exam (eg. Paper 2 from 9am-12pm and Paper 3 from 2-3pm)
  2. At least two days after Paper 2 (N.B. the Uni does not allow exams on consecutive days)

Medical Deans Australia and New Zealand exam questions

Fifth Year students please read the following information carefully. Your thoughts and opinions will likely impact the way the Medical School moves forward with their decision regarding your end of year assessment! Sixth Year or Honours students who have completed their final exams are also very welcome to comment given your recent experiences.
