"Dear Mr Pathak and Safeena,
A heartfelt email to say a huge thank you for your help in passing my MRCS.
To put it bluntly I completely underestimated the exam, I booked it on a whim when I was preparing for my Cst/ST1 interviews given I was already revising however I hadn’t realised the magnitude of the syllabus. I was sitting down to revise and not knowing which way to turn, there was too much looking at me.
I found your course on the internet the night before it started, Safeena got straight back to me and assured me you could help.
I wish that I had found you earlier and had time to look over the material prior to the course however it was incredibly useful all the same.
Mr Pathak has a unique way of teaching in a really memorable way to incite deep-seated learning, such as Union Jack at T12 or thumbs up at C6, I’m sure I’ll remember these for life!
The course fostered a welcoming and accommodating ethos. From here I met 2 revision buddies who I practised on a regular basis with coming up to the exam, this was invaluable. The WhatsApp group also offered a wealth of support from others who were going through the exam at the same time and you were both just wonderful when I had a wobble pre-exam…thank you for not letting me pull out last minute!
The session with the critical care actor was excellent practice, demonstrating the types of questions, depth of knowledge required and giving exam-like experience.
It is obvious how much time, dedication and thought has gone into creating this unique MRCS course which I have already recommended to many. The course makes the exam feel manageable, gives you a support network and all the resources required to pass. Most importantly, by enrolling on this course I found people who cared which is incredibly important at what can be a very stressful time. I am incredibly grateful, I genuinely feel I owe my pass to this course.
Thank you so very much" - FY2, Lancashire

MRCS Part B: Reviews
Part B Skills/Communication/Examination course:
This course in particular was massively useful for me. Being busy at work it is often difficult to set time aside to actually practise scenarios with colleagues and this course is an excellent way of being able to practise communication skills in an exam style format.
Mr Pathak is able to closely replicate the style of the exam and also provides very useful feedback which you can use to perfect your technique.
Definitely revise for this one like an exam to get the most out of it! The professional actor was great, even using props to dress up and really simulate real life patients and put you under that extra bit of pressure like you get in the exam.
There are also critical care stations led by a consultant who again gives you constructive feedback and gives you a real sense of how these stations go in the exam (useful as we often concentrate only on anatomy/pathology/skills) and is great to practise your viva skills.
I couldn’t recommend these courses enough.
Practice really is key to this exam and these courses are a great way to do that.
Mr Pathak and Safeena are incredibly supportive and will do everything they can to help you in your preparation.
The group sizes are small enough so you get plenty of practice, but also great as you are able to learn from other candidates and pick up styles/phases which may be useful to you.
I’m not usually a person for courses, but in hindsight I am so glad I attended these – if you are in two minds, just book it now. You won’t regret it! Good luck!
