The predictors of success in the Jordan Medical Board Exam (JMBE) were studied using retrospective analysis of the examinees records.
Information on demographic and educational achievements were obtained on all candidates between the period 1983 to 1988 (n = 3654).
Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to adjust for possible confounding factors affecting the results of the exam.
The findings showed that the overall exam pass rate was 24%, a value which varied widely depending upon the candidates'country from which the basic medical degree was obtained, as well as the country of specialization.
The chances of passing the exam decreased with increased number of attempts.
The country of specialization remained the most important predictor of success after adjustment of the other factors.
