Undergraduate medical education is currently undergoing extensive re-evaluation with new core educational objectives being defined. Consequently, new exam systems have also been designed to test the objectives. Objective structured practical examination (OSPE) is one of them. We conducted OSPE in a regular batch of 64 students. The batch was divided into 4 groups, one group taking the conventional practical exam and the other groups OSPE with minor variations. Different aspects were compared and analyzed and we found that OSPE was more objective, measured practical skills better, had a wide discrimination index and eliminated examiner bias. The questionnaire given to the students revealed a high acceptance rate among them.
