After two weeks of intense examminaton consisting of Written (MCQs, Theory), Practical and Oral (Viva) examinations, the D-day finally came. The results of the UNIZIK 2nd MBBS professional exams were released today.
Thankfully, it wasn’t as disastrous as that of UNN which quickly gained national attention due to the unprecedented failure rate but it was equally not very heartening.
This evening, after the customary board meeting, the Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences of the UNIZIK College of Health Sciences released the 2nd MB results. As usual, it was received with mixed feelings but with a general feeling of despair.
Here’s a brief analysis of the result:
Total Number of candidates = 120
21 JCIB [Join the class immediately below]
12 Double resit [Resit in 2 out of 3]
26 Single resit [Resit in 1 out of 3]
50 out of 120 passed straight [No resit]
Percentage pass: 41.6%
Only one distinction [Physiology]
The major fatality was Biochemistry. Only 44% of students passed. 66% had resit.
