I have passed my FRCS exit exam. Thank you! The course provided an ideal mock exam for the real FRCS. I did not need lectures, but real exam practice which the course provided, including honest and appropriate feedback. The course certainly helped me to gain confidence for the exam.
Ms Catherine Walter

Yes I passed the exam! I thought your course was brilliant preparation for the exam and provided a really accurate mock. Thank you very much.
Mr James Horwood
University College London




Yep - I passed the exam. The course was excellent and very close to the 'real' exam. I have recommended to other people doing the exam in the next 12 months.

I am very happy to tell you that I have been successful in the FRCS September Examination. It was my first attempt; thank God my final exam in life as well! I have no hesitation in stating that your course was extremely helpful and was a mirror image of real exam. Your course is a true experience of what to expect and helped me prepare myself accordingly. I did not do very well at the course and was given a very honest feedback by the faculty. I learnt what I needed to do and what areas I need to improve.

This mock FRCS Exit exam course is simulated full dress rehearsal on the section 2 of the actual exam, accepting it is conducted on a single day. The patients and topics are chosen from a variety of clinical scenarios that accurately reflect the curriculum. Academic viva and all the rest of the vivas are superbly organised and carefully timed. Feedback on performance including correct body language and useful tips and tricks for clinical and vivas immensely enhance candidate’s prospects to pass the real exam. One of the exceptional features of this course is that all the “examiners” are very experienced consultants including some from the Intercollegiate FRCS examiner’s panel. I would definitely recommend as excellent value for money and outstanding training for the exam.

The MOCK exam was very helpful. A mock exam three weeks prior to the actual exam provided me with an excellent opportunity to re?ect on my knowledge and exam technique, and plan exactly the same way I would want to present in the ‘rea’l examination.Your mock day was very much like the exam and I will highly recommend it.

It is modelled exactly like the exam and mentally prepares you for the exam day- invaluable for those giving the exam the first time. Faculty was excellent.Overall excellent course. Good value for money. Well conducted. I have already started recommending it to my colleagues. Thanks.

I passed the exam, although I don't know the marks for the individual sections as yet. I found the mock exam course to be very useful, particularly with regards to the style of questioning.

Relevant to exam. With more time (i.e., extra day), could have seen some more cases.

Good.

Thank you for your mail. I am very pleased to inform that I have passed. The mock exam was helpful. The best thing about it was its similarity to the real exam. Good variety of cases. I am sure it is hard work. The environment that you had created in Glamorgan hospital very well mimicked the environment that I faced in the real exam. My appreciation for everyone who has been behind it. 2 courses like this in a year will be helpful because I know there are many out there who are desperate for viva practice but please do not increase the fees (as was contemplated on the day of the course) because that is one of the strengths for this course.
