 The Intensive Final Course

We run intensive revision courses aimed at basic science revision and clinical viva practice for the viva day of the final part of the FRCA. The course runs in the intermission between the written and viva, normally a few weeks before the vivas.

This exam is too important and expensive to take chances with your knowledge. Let us help you pass.

 We hold intensive 2 day courses in Bristol and Southampton that take place a few weeks before the final vivas are held.

The first day is dedicated to small group viva practice sessions in physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, and physics/equipment. We also aim to target your presentation of clinical information for the exam. The second day is a formal day in which we recreate the college exam conditions. Each candidate will do 6 clinical long cases, 12 clinical short cases and 6 full basic science vivas.

Each candidate has a mentor, with whom they can discuss the course, the candidates’ performance in the practice sessions and to get further advice. There is time allocated throughout the second day for formal feedback from the examiners.

It was pretty hard work but the exam will only be a sixth of that last day and the feedback I’ve just received is really helpful.
