In one of the final oral exams while he was at the Starfleet Medical Academy, Julian Bashir incorrectly identified a preganglionic fiber as a postganglionic nerve. The error meant Bashir lost the title of valedictorian to Elizabeth Lense and became salutatorian of the graduating class. (DS9 episodes: "Q-Less", "Explorers")
Bashir mentioned his failure in discerning between a preganglionic fiber and a postganglionic nerve to Jadzia Dax, Benjamin Sisko and Kira Nerys when he first met them on the way to, and on, Deep Space 9 in 2369. (DS9 novelization: Emissary)
In 2371, while Bashir was in a coma after a telepathic attack by the Lethean criminal Altovar, an imaginary version of the Lethean claimed Bashir gave the wrong answer on purpose. (DS9 episode: "Distant Voices")
