The aspects connected with the timed theoretical-practical test and the criteria given by the students on this regard are approached aimed at assessing their level of satisfaction and the possible suggestions for its improvement. To this end, 134 students from the lst year of medicine and the baccalaureate degree program of the course 1997-1998 were selected. A survey was done to collect data. Strong psychical stress, difficulty in the rotations due to the established time, influence of the waiting time previous to the test and the type of test preferred by the student are among the studied parameters. These parameters were statistically studied and it was observed that 53,7% of the students suffered from a strong psychical stress. It was obtained a X2 of 9,23 for p<0,001 in relation to the time established from one rotation to the other, and a X2 of 20,3 for p<0,0001 regarding the waiting time and the assessment of relaxation methods. It was concluded that in spite of the results and the students? assessment, 99 prefer the timed theoretical-practical test, accounting for 73,9 %, independently of the suggestions given in the survey.
