Results: The highest failure rate occurred at the OSCE’s station that measured physical examination skills (20 - 36%). The lowest was appeared at the station which measured communication and patient education (9.66%). Dental Radiology was a learning content that has the highest failure rate (20,37%) during the period had been analyzed. Furthermore, there was 1 – 4 stations on each period of OSCE National Competency exam in 2012 – 2013 that has co-efficiency of variation >30 %. Conclusion: The failure rates can demonstrate the learning content that require an evaluation. The evaluation of between-group variation could be an early indication of unequal candidate’s ability.
