The study was done by General Medical Council on 5,000 candidates, after ethnic minority students complained that the exam was unfair, the BBC reported.
Aneez Esmail, an expert on racism in the NHS who led the investigation, said that "unconscious bias" could explain the findings.
Esmail stated that he thinks that this may be happening without even realizing and the results are being assessed in a different way, and there is no specific bias towards white British graduates.
He added that its all unconscious stuff that goes on which everybody needs to be aware of.
