The research community was the University of Khartoum and the research sample consisted of the Faculty of Science. The Faculty was deliberately selected because of the many medical reports presented thereto. A comprehensive survey was conducted on all medical reports issued in one academic year, from the start-up to the end of the supplementary and alternative examinations. A comparison between the numbers of reports between the faculty of science and faculty of economic was conducted. One of the general findings is that there is significant difference between the percentage of reports in the faculties of science of the universities of Khartoum. In both universities, the percentage of reports issued during the final examinations is significantly greater than that during the academic year. Also, reports of female students are greater in number than those of male students; and external reports exceed internal ones.
