The global score interprets as; 0–50 = very poor; 51–100 = many problems; 101–150 = more positive than negative; 151–200= excellent.The DREEM questionnaires were given to students followed by a brief explanation of the study, including anonymity. The scores were interpreted using McAleer and Roff‟s guide. Results: The overall response rate for 73 students was 100%.The mean score for perception of learning and academic skills was 23 (6.133) and 24 (8.108) respectively depicting plenty of problems.
