ABSTRACT
It is not well known in Korea if the entrance examination score has any predictive validity on the graduation score and national licensure examination. In addition, the gender effects of the three scores were investigated. The study was conducted using two years data of the three scores. The three scores from students of class of 98 and 99 were collected. Students who could not complete the medical education in four years were excluded. Also students who could not pass the national licensure examination were excluded as well. Correlations among the three scores were calculated and gender effect was examined by t- test. For the statistical process, SPSS 9.0 was used. The correlation between the scores of the entrance examination and graduation examination is not significant at 5% level. The correlation between the scores of the entrance examination and national licensure examination is not significant at 5% level. The correlation between graduation examination and national licensure examination;0.635 is highly significant at 0.1% level. The score difference between male and female at the entrance examination was not significant at 5% level. The score difference between male and female at the graduation examination and national licensure examination was highly significant at 0.1% level.
