MRCS PART B OSCE COURSES

MRCS Part B Testimonial 
FY2, June 2022

MRCS Part B results - June 2022

 "Dear Mr Pathak, 

 

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

 

Congratulations from SMASHING Education.

"

I think this course was excellent and clearly very well planned and thought out.

 

Mr Pathak is very knowledgeable, but also good at breaking down complex topics so that they can be understood. He presented the material in an organised manner and chooses key high yield areas to focus on, which makes revision easier.

 

I felt that I was able to ask all the questions I needed to. I liked the fact that we were quizzed on critical care by an ICU consultant, and really enjoyed working with the actor. I liked how interactive the course was, and the fact that the question and answer style trained us from the beginning to get used to the exam structure.

 

I know I still have work to do, but it doesn’t feel like an overwhelming amount. I am extremely grateful for all the time and effort clearly put in to preparing this course!

The ICU consultant was excellent. He gave extremely helpful feedback and chose good scenarios
The actor was fantastic . He made the communication scenarios very lifelike and also gave helpful feedback.
