Results

On the results day, you will be emailed by the FEO.

They ask you to log into the

Imperial e-service:

http://

www.imperial.ac.uk/studenteservice

Look for them under the

‘Academic Record’

tab.

Prior to the release of results, the FEO release the pass-marks on the intranet under the exam links.

The Top 3 of each year AND the top of each exam paper will get a prize

Slide7

Resits

DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THESE UNTIL AFTER YOUR RESULTS, OR IF YOU DEFINITELY THINK THE PAPERS WENT DISASTROUSLY BAD.

If you do end up not getting the pass marks, you will be automatically entered into the Summer Resits.

The dates will be released closer to the time of the summative exams, but they normally take place

over the 2

nd

week of August.

The percentage of those who resit is relatively normal compared to other medical schools.

Slide8

Type of Questions

SBA

– Single Best Answer

EMQ

– Extended Matching Questions

SAQ

– Short Answer Questions

EMQs

and

SBAs

are the type of questions you will come across your years at medical school.

However multiple choice doesn’t distinguish whether people actually understand concepts presented in Y1&2, so that is why we also do

SAQs

- they are the questions you ‘have to think about’.

Slide9

SBA – Single Best Answer

Multiple choice questions that ask you for the

‘BEST’

answer out of 5.

If they’re mean, they can put two answers that are very similar to each other.

Best Method:

Process of Elimination

Go through each option and figure out if you think it’s true or false or a ?.

You’ll most likely end up with having to choose between 2.

INTELLEGENTLY GUESS IF YOU DON’T KNOW!

Slide10

SBA example

Where in the cell does the TCA cycle occur?*

The Cytoplasm

The Mitochondrial Matrix

In the Inter-mitochondrial-membrane space

On Rough ER

In the Nucleus

* Taken from the Metabolism Self Test on learn.imperial.ac.uk

Slide11

EMQ – Extended Matching Questions

Similar to Mix-And-Match Questions.

Normally involves definitions.

5 Questions per list of 10 options.

Options can be used:

ONCE, MORE THAN ONE, OR NOT AT ALL.

A lot of options you can eliminate just because

1. they are from a different topic or

2. you know

that it

definitely isn’t

the answer.

Slide12

EMQ Example

T CellB CellNatural Killer CellNeutrophilMacrophageLangerhans CellFollicular CellBasophilEosinophilPancreatic Beta Cell

Questions

Associated with CD4+ or CD8+

Contains Multi-Segmented Nucleus

Widely Spread throughout the skin

Secretes Insulin

* Taken from the

Immunology

Self Test on learn.imperial.ac.uk

Slide13

SAQ – Short Answer Questions

These rely on you understand the topic than just remembering facts for SBA and EMQs

More writing!

Can be compared to A level Biology

You get an initial 1 or 2 marker question then more expanded questions which require ‘longer’ answers i.e. a paragraph of writing

Can be used test across topics

– Obvious links!

e.g. Immunology and Microbiology

Slide14

SAQ - Example

Name the process that makes glucose from other substrates (1 mark)

List 3 different substrates that could be used (3 marks)

Explain how Adrenaline and Insulin influence the blood sugar levels (6 marks)

What other major hormone is involved in the homeostasis of blood sugar levels? (1 mark)

Answers are not the best, because I made this from the top of head.

Slide15

Year 1 Formative

Monday 9 January 2012, 2pm – 4pm

For MCD:

(Advised 80 minutes)

32 SBA – Advised 40 minutes

2 EMQ – Advised 10 minutes

2 SAQ – Advised 30 minutes

For FCP:

40 minutes of SAQ & SBAs.

Topics:

MCD – Everything including

practicals

FCP – Clinical Communications, Society & Health, parts of First Clinical Attachment.

Slide16

GE1 Formative

Tuesday 31 January 2012, 2pm – 5pm

Exam arrangements will be sent to you by 17

th

Jan.

Society & Health:

6 items

Regulatory Systems:

21 items

Support Systems:

31 items

Cellular and Molecular Sciences:

38 items

Anatomy:

44 items

Hopefully a SAQ consists of 10 items, EMQ (5 questions with one list of options) = 5 items and a SBA = 1 item

Only Support System will have a SAQ.

Slide17

The Exams

SBA & EMQs are marked by machine by something similar to the math’s challenge or the BMAT.Put your NAME & Candidate Number down.Make sure you’re using the right side for SBA and EMQs (EMQ are the longer ones)

Slide18

Tips 1

Other than a good night sleep etc…

Make sure you have

spare pens and HB pencils

!

Bring some water

or some snack that isn’t noisy to eat!

Wear comfortable clothes

Comfort Breaks

BEFORE

the exam

– No need to waste time during the exam unless you’re bursting.

Stay calm

, you know what you’re doing.

Slide19

Tips 2

Make sure you

know how much time

you want to spend on SAQ, EMQ or SBA.

Choose which ever you want to do first but I would advise

GLANCE over what topics the SAQs are on

, so that whilst doing the EMQ/SBAs your brain is subconsciously working out stuff for the SAQs, plus you can also figure out if you need to allocate more time for them.

Guess if you don’t know it!

Slide20

Tips 3

READ THE QUESTION

, then read it

again.

I’ve made this mistake so many times.

For SBA/EMQ –

Mark on the question sheet your answer

, then transfer the answers to the answer sheet.

If you skip a question, give yourself a note to remind you of it later and make sure to skip it on the answer sheet too!

I put a

massive highlighted circle

around the SBAs I skipped.

I know someone who lost 50% of their SBA answers

because they realised 5 minutes before the end they only had 39 answers to 40 questions. In addition, they didn’t mark on the question paper what they put the answer as.
