Course Format

Mock exams were sent prior to the course. The course took the format of 6 days of lectures to a large audience of 100 to 150 people in a lecture theatre, at times you would work through MCQs or have a lecture followed by relevant questions. Time was made available after the lecture to ask questions. 90% of lecturers were consultants.Most evenings you were given some practice papers, though answers were not discussed written answers with explanations.


A well run course which offered good insight into how to approach the best of five format questions, I found the course improved my score by 5-10%. The central location was handy for socialisation in the evenings. I would recommend taking the ‘food option’, which is taken by the majority, as this helps group bonding and facilitates discussion of questions over food.

Would you recommend this course?

Yes, Excellent folder of questions, notes and explanations. If you can’t go on the course then at least get hold of someone else’s folder!

Overall 4.5/5

  2. I was very diaappointed when I Joined the pasttest course and found that some of the Lecturers were so unprofessional that they were unable to hide their haitred to others. For example; The endocrinologist gave ‘Examlpe’by pointing to one of the students saying ‘ If a car hit this laydy and then she died and had postmortum exam. what will be the colour of her adrenal gland, then the bloody old man asked one of the (what he thinks white coloure female) and she answred ; brown coloure and the continued wasting the time regarding this bloody issue. It was so discussting, I will never go to pstest course again. Mind YOU i TOLD ALL MY FRIENDS OVERSEAS about this and no one will go to this course.
