Examination Cell

The Examination Cell is a centralized cell for the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) and is an integral division of Department for Educational Development (DED) and helps to conduct and analyze Aga Khan University Medical College (AKU-MC) Undergraduate (UG) and Postgraduate (PG), and School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM) examinations.

Question Bank

All question formats (MCQs, OSCEs, ATPs, SAQs, Structured Viva Questions) are secured in a centralized Question Data Bank (QB). The QB stores questions that have been reviewed and accepted by the content experts and DED faculty for content and construct. Availability of the reviewed and accepted questions in the Data Bank allows faculty to design a high quality question paper according to the objectives and Table of Specifications (TOS) for the examination easily.

It is the responsibility of the Exam Coordinator to extract the questions from the QB according to the TOS and arrange exam paper review meeting with the DED and other relevant faculty before submission of the final paper to the Examination Cell. No changes are allowed in the Examination Paper (content and sequence) after the paper has been submitted to the Examination Cell.
