RANZCR clinical radiology multiple choice examination

Last revised by Dr Joshua Yap on 24 Aug 2022

The RANZCR clinical radiology multiple choice examination is part of the RANZCR Phase 2 examinations. It is one of two components comprising the clinical radiology written examinations, with the other component being the case reporting examination

Trainees have a maximum of three consecutive opportunities to complete both clinical radiology written examinations. Both examinations must be sat together on the first attempt, however if a trainee fails one of the two examinations, they are only required to resit that failed examination at their next opportunity. The overall passing score is normally set at 60% however the passing standard for each case may vary from this percentage.

The examination is typically attempted in the third year of training after completion of (or together with) the pathology examination.


The examination is 2 hours in duration and consists of 100 multiple choice questions, each with a stem and 5 possible answers. Each question is worth 1 mark.

Since August 2012 the examination has been delivered electronically. Currently it is delivered on the Practique system via online proctoring.
