The MRCS Part B OSCE 2-day online preparation course is suitable for delegates who have successfully completed the MRCS Part A examination. 
The online interactive course will cover the contents examined in all 13 stations. Each delegate will be examined for 9 minutes whilst being observed by other delegates. Constructive feedback will be given. Time will be available for group discussion too, we would strongly encourage delegates to be interactive.

MRCS Part B: Reviews


Excellent crash course covering the maximum possible information.

The explanations provided were concise and as detailed as necessary!

Loved the 1:1 focus and individualized pointers/feedback. 
Mr Pathak was extremely patient and approachable throughout.

The actor and anaesthetist are both great assets to this revision course and they provided the best possible simulation and personalized feedback. 


I would certainly recommend this course, especially for the individualized attention, supportive/mentoring vibe and the pointers from Mr Pathak, the actor and anaesthetist. 

Post Exam feedback: I am so happy that I have passed my Part B exam on the 1st sitting thanks to your course and all your support. Thank you so much for helping me prepare in such a short span of time!
