Abstract
To investigate the academic status of students and to analyze the trend of students' academic achievement in a new local college of medicine and probes into the key control factors that affect the students' academic failure. Academic cleaning, questionnaire investigation and interview were used to analyze the status of students' failure, college teaching management and students' management, and the descriptive analysis method was used to analyze the data. 1. Failure status. The number and failure rate of students in a medical school for the academic year 2014-2018 generally showed an upward trend, with the highest number in the next academic year 2017-2018. The failure rate of clinical medicine and nursing were 32.6 percent and 28.1 percent respectively. 2. Fail course. The first four degree courses were physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology, systematic anatomy, preventive medicine. 3. Major cause of failure. The main reasons for failure were that the learning methods were not correct and the knowledge points were more resistance, the teaching method of teachers were monotonous and boring, the experimental equipment were insufficient, the guidance of experimental teachers was not enough, the study room was not enough, and the management mode of students' education was not appropriate. The number of students transferred to major was too large. 4. Students' attitude to failing and teaching expectation. 88.5percent students should learn lessons and review them carefully after failing, and the reform of teachers' teaching methods expected by students in turn was curriculum integration, mixed type, MOOCs, case type, flipping class, Problem-based learning (PBL). The failure rate of students in a certain medical college was increasing. The failure of degree course was more serious, the students' learning method was impertinence, the degree course was difficult, the teaching is monotonous, and the teaching guarantee condition was insufficient. The main reason of failure was that the student management mode was not suitable and the ratio of students to teachers was too high.
