About

This intensive, one-day course is specifically designed for candidates appearing for the exam on Tuesday, 12th January 2021. Delivered by Professor Enoch, the convenor of the renowned and highly regarded Cardiff MRCS OSCE courses, this course is suitable for delegates who have completed adequate prior revision and wish to brush-up on the entire exam syllabus in one day. The course will help the delegate to consolidate his/her revision, clarify key concepts and will run through 100s of SBA questions.

There will not be any lectures. Rather, the entire day will instead focus on ‘rapid fire’ discussion of the SBA questions and answers that are most likely to appear in the exam. The course will only highlight the ‘must know’ areas and take the delegate through the core topics in Applied Basic Sciences (ABS) and Principles of Surgery in General (PoSG). The course will also informthe delegate regarding the topics to focus in the last 2 weeks before the exam on 12th January 2021. This revision day is considered to be worth 35 hours of individual revision.
