Exams 2, 3 and 4 will be held online on Saturday evenings/Sunday mornings over three weeks commencing 3 August 2019 (see exam dates).

Each practice exam is designed for self-assessment with each case accompanied by a detailed scoring template and five example answers typed by real candidates under exam conditions (read more).

Online Exam Format
Each practice exam will consist of 8 cases drawn from different radiology subspecialties, and may be single or multimodality. Cases will be generally pitched at a higher difficulty than the actual exam to challenge your answer technique and to extend your knowledge.
Each case has BACK, MENU and NEXT buttons to facilitate navigation through the exam. It is recommended that candidates set up a split screen with the practice exam in one window and a word processing document in another window with Findings, Likely Diagnosis, Differential, Further Management or Investigation as headings to type answers under.
While we have allowed a 3 hour window on Saturday evenings and again on Sunday mornings for registrants to access each practice exam, candidates should try to restrict themselves to no more than 120 minutes (15 minutes per case) in order to best simulate the actual eFilm reading exam. Note: only one device may access the exam per registered user account at any time
Scoring templates and example answers
Registrants will not submit their answers to Radiopaedia for marking. Instead, you will receive detailed scoring templates for each case and scored example answers provided by five real candidates each of whom went on to sit the RANZCR eFilm Exam within two weeks of completing these practice exams (see results summary at top of page). It is our experience that the scoring templates and example answers provide an excellent mechanism for self-assessment and improvement.
The case scoring templates and example answers for exams 2, 3 and 4 will be available directly after the Sunday morning session, and will be accessible up until the next week's practice exam. After practice exam 4, the answers for all four practice exams (32 cases in total) will be accessible for viewing up until Friday 30 August 2019. After this date the exams and cases will no longer be accessible.
