BALADRON-ROMERO, Jaime et al. Results obtained in the 2021 MIR test according to nationality and academic scale. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2022, vol.25, n.5, pp.205-213.  Epub 19-Dic-2022. ISSN 2014-9840.


In Spain, access to specialized medical training is done through the MIR test. This test is convened annually since 1978 by the Ministries of Health and Education and Vocational Training. Thus, taking into account both the result obtained in the test and the average degree scale, an order number is assigned to doctors who want to access a training position as specialists. The objective of this work is the analysis of the results obtained by the doctors who took the 2021 test based on their academic scale and whether they are Spanish or foreign.

Materials and methods.

For this research, the official public information regarding the academic scale, nationality and the results obtained in the test by all the applicants presented to has been employed.


The 90.61% of those doctors that obtained in their degrees an average mark of 9 or more can be found among the 5,000 first order numbers, the same happen to the 79.59% of those who obtained a mark from 8 to 8.99, the 42.21% of those with a mark from 7 to 7.00 and only the 7.16% of those doctors with an average mark in their degrees under 7.


This study confirms that there is a direct relationship between the marks obtained in their degree of doctors aspiring to a specialized medical training position and the result they obtain in the MIR test, beyond the weighting of this on the final grade of the MIR test.
