AbstractThe objective of this study was to examine the students' views on a transitional course for Asian freshers in a revised medical curriculum. Data were collected through the year-end questionnaire distributed to all first-year students over three academic years from 1997 to 2000. The students considered the transitional course had encouraged them to become more active and self-directed although there were different views about its overall effectiveness. Students appeared uncertain as to the depth in which they were expected to master the subjects, thus leading them to call for more clearly stated learning objectives to help relieve the anxiety they had towards the examinations. Lectures and self-assessment exercises were seen to be providing the general guides for that.
