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 FindingsLikely DiagnosisDifferentialFurther 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 30 September 2021. After this date the exams and cases will no longer be accessible. 

These practice exams are in no way approved or endorsed by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists. We, Radiopedia Events Pty Ltd, have created these practice exams independently based on available information and the experience of our radiologists. While we have taken great effort to produce a useful resource for candidates, we cannot take any responsibility for actual examination performance. 

The cases used in these eFilm Practice Exams are (almost) the same as those featured in our FRCR 2b Reporting Practice Exams and so we would recommend only registering for one of the two and not both. These exams contain 8 cases compared to 6 cases in the FRCR practice exams, with Obstetric and Gynecology cases accounting for most of the differences.
