Part One Tutorial Programs

NEW INFORMATION Click Here

Updated on February 5, 2010

Introduction

The Part One syllabus is huge !!! Requiring in depth knowledge in...

There is too much information to possibly learn from didactic teaching, that's what 2 years of Medical School was devoted to !! Instead the tutorials are an opportunity for candidates to teach each other on small sections of the syllabus. Also candidates are asked to try and create multi-choice questions so as to get used to reviewing information as an exam question


PROGRAM FOR 2010.1 EXAM

THE RULES

No MCQs No tutorial.

EIGHT REFERENCED QUESTIONS PER PERSON

To pass the exam you have to do 1000's of MCQs. In order to do this we need to build up a bank of questions and practice creating and answering likely MCQ topics. NO MCQs means you haven't prepared / read anything about the days topic. There is NO new learning at the tutorials only review / revision of material already learned.
