Speedwell’s eSystem exam software has been chosen by two new Medical Schools.

Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) School of Medicine and Sunderland Medical School – the first of five new medical schools to open under the government initiative to boost the numbers of doctors training across England – have both chosen Speedwell to help with their assessment requirements.

ARU School of Medicine welcomed their first cohort of students in September 2018. Prior to this, they engaged Speedwell to help with their admissions interviews which were run in mini multiple interview (MMI) format. Before rolling out the software to online single best answer (SBA) exams as the course progressed.

Jo Colbert, Undergraduate Assessment Manager at ARU School of Medicine, says:

“Speedwell’s eSystem has performed to all our expectations. It’s allowed us to confidently deliver a fully automated programme of online interviews and exams straight away – exactly as we wanted”

In August 2019, Sunderland Medical School confirmed that Speedwell’s eSystem would be used by the Medical school. Initially for organising their question bank and then for running SBA and OSCE exams in their brand-new state of the art facilities.

Marina Sawdon, Academic Assessment and Quality Lead at Sunderland Medical School, comments:

“We are excited to be working with Speedwell in all aspects of our knowledge and skills exams in Medicine; from authoring to delivery and post-exam analysis. Using Speedwell for our SBA and clinical OSCE exams will ensure we have a streamlined, up-to-date digital exam system that this generation of students expect”

Rob Dear, Joint CEO for Speedwell says:

“We are delighted to be working with these two new Medical Schools to deliver their examinations. We have been supplying exam software to Royal Colleges and Medical Schools for over 30 years, so we have the knowledge and expertise needed to ensure that high stakes exams run smoothly and efficiently”

With our eSystem software, you get all of the benefits associated with the streamlined exam management as well as the flexibility to customise the software to suit individual requirements. This together with the intuitive interface is making eSystem the obvious choice for many institutions”
