eFilm Reading Practice Exams - Online
February 2021 Practice Exams
Radiopaedia has scheduled four online practice exams intended for individuals sitting the RANZCR eFilm Reading Exam Series 1, 2021. Exam 1 is available now and can be taken at any time before 13 February 2021. Exams 2, 3 and 4 will be held online on Saturday evenings/Sunday mornings over three weeks commencing 13 February 2021 (see exam dates).
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN FOR SERIES 2, 2021 IN EARLY APRIL
Each practice exam is designed for self-assessment with each case accompanied by a detailed scoring template and five example answers typed by real candidates under exam conditions (read more). Our test candidate results (%) for each practice exam and corresponding actual RANZCR eFilm reading exam score are shown below. All candidates passed the actual exam, except candidate 5.

Practice exams 2, 3 and 4 will be delivered online via Radiopaedia on Saturday evenings (7 pm to 10 pm AEDT) and repeated again on Sunday mornings (7 am to 10 am AEDT) over three consecutive weeks.

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 Findings, Likely Diagnosis, Differential, Further 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 31 March 2021. After this date the exams and cases will no longer be accessible.
DisclaimerThese 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.
