Lowest satisfaction levels were reported towards the following items; receiving sufficient information on how to prepare for the examination 29.3%, the efficiency of registration process 24.0%, length of time waiting in reception area 21.3%, confidentiality, and privacy of the service 34.7%. On the other hand, 98% of participants were satisfied with the experience of staff.
