This study investigated the effects of gender and nationality on performance in various aspects of the undergraduate final examination in psychiatry. Results in all sections of the final examination were analysed in the case of 140 students from the same year.
There were no statistically significant differences between performances by males and females, however non-nationals performed less well in all aspects of the examination.
Teaching programmes need to identify which aspects of the undergraduate course cause particular difficulty for non-nationals. This information would usefully inform future developments in undergraduate teaching.
