  9. 9. Conclusions: When should Finals be sat at King’s? • Finals should be sat closer to January in the final year But why? 1. Opportunity for students to re-sit in year  enabling students to continue to foundation posts. 2. Discrete preparation for practice module towards the end of final year. @therajivsethi @carneyprof #ASMEASM2015
  10. 10. How has this work impacted MBBS Curriculum 2020? • Finals will be sat in December/ January of final year • A discrete preparation for practice module towards the end of final year • The Elective will take place Feb–April of final year with re-sit opportunity after this period.
  11. 11. How does this affect UK Medical Education? • There is no correlation between timing of finals and self-reported preparation for practice. • UK Medical Licensing Exam • Further work required to assess preparation for practice curricula at medical schools @therajivsethi @carneyprof #ASMEASM2015
