Introduction: One of the main duties of universities in Iran is training of general students. Therefore, the educational process of dental students of general dentistry should be evaluated and compared in all of these universities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the views of dental students in Isfahan, Yazd, Kashan in comprehensive science exams.
Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, 277 students of Medical Universities of Isfahan, Yazd and Kashan participated in the study. A data collection tool was a pre-made questionnaire, containing 26 questions in five options in seven areas. Data were analyzed by SPSS software, that is to say, One-way ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient T-test were used for data analysis.
Results: Comparison of mean scores in the University of the United University based on one-way ANOVA showed a significant difference in the benefit of the test (2. 894 ± 0. 94) (f =. 05, p =. 698), and the mean value (± 11. 55) / 3) (f = 717/3 = p <0. 05) between universities. Based on student admission quota at university and based on T-test, there was no significant difference as far as gender was considered. There was no significant difference between the males and females based on student admission quotas in the university and based on the T-test. There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of the content of the questions based on the one-way ANOVA test (p> 0. 05) ± 3. 09) (2. 362 f =, p <0. 05), and test benefits (2. 8 ± 0. 94) (f = 0. 059, p <0. 05).
Conclusion: In this study, although most students considered the basic science exam as essential for measuring information, they did not consider the test score to be a student's knowledge. Considering all the findings of the research, it seems that the revision of the basic science exam and its holding as a comprehensive dental exam in the late stages of the general course has more beneficial effects on the goals of the new dental curriculum.
