Tips on the Oral Certifying Exam

On the Otolaryngology Oral exam the prompts are generally very straightforward. Most test takers have spent the past four to five years learning the core content, so the cases will not come as a surprise. In many ways, the test is configured to make sure that learners communicate effectively and can ask the right questions.

On the real exam, each section has approximately 3 cases and typically the cases are balanced between easy and difficult. Most learners have indicated that the hardest cases can appear in general ENT, so we have presented a series of challenging cases in that category.

Most importantly, the Oral exams have a very high pass rate. (Estimated over 95%) Use the BoardVitals practice guidelines, review high level concepts, sleep well before the exam and you’ll be fine. Good luck!
