The continuous study during course period could have a significant role in half-life Course Information. This study aimed to investigate the effect of regular class exams on the final scores obtained of body fluids and renal physiology course in two medical and pharmacy groups. The teacher and the curriculum were quite similar to the selected population. This study was performed in the first semester of the academic year in 2012-2013. According to the survey, only pharmacy students were willing to participate in regular class exams. In addition to the final test, pharmacy students also took part in three tests while medical students only participated in the final test. The number of long answer essay-questions and short answer essay-questions in each class exam were identical (4 in each). Final test questions were also quite similar in both studied groups. Furthermore, the results showed that the total score of pharmacy students and their final score were significantly higher in comparison to medical students. In addition, the percentage of both exam acceptance and higher quality score in pharmacy students were higher than medical students. Thus, regular exams being held during course period could have a significant impact on final scores, quality scores, and percentage of acceptance in kidney physiology test.
