We are aware of the impending changes to the structure of the Final FRCA SOE Examination from December 2018 and we plan to make adjustments to the format of our Final Viva Courses, particularly the Final Viva Practice Weekend.

 As the new format of the exam has not yet been put into practice we currently have little intelligence of the new Long Case & Short Case-Science Questions. As we gather Feedbacks from Candidates we can make any necessary adjustments to better reflect the structure of the Questions down at the College.

 However, Candidates should appreciate that all material & content that they will encounter during their time spent on the Courses will still be pertinent to their Final FRCA Preparation as the syllabus will remain unchanged.

Essentially this is a 5 1/2 day course of Intense Shared Revision

The Candidates study together in small groups covering:
An extensive collection of Verbatim RCOA Feedbacks in;
Long Cases
Short Cases
The Clinical Sciences – Anatomy/Physiology/Pharmacology/Physics

Plus, as a form of relief from the Group Study, there are sessions on:
Interpretation of X-Rays
Pulmonary Function Tests
Sleep Studies
Anatomy Playtime
Physics Quizzes
ECG Playtime
Data Case Playtime

All the Booklet Fodder used on the Course for the Group Work reflects the London Examination.

A principle value of the course is that it alerts examination candidates to the Viva Topics that might appear in London plus the manner and form in which they might appear, this often as an alarming surprise.

Thus, the course exposes gaps/weaknesses while allowing a few weeks ahead to address & repair same.

A persistent theme in the feedback from candidates is the assertion that the course fosters a far greater amount and degree of revision than could be managed when working alone or intermittently elsewhere.

This course is NOT a course in Viva Presentation & Practice.
It is a course to prepare candidates for questions possible in the SOEs.
The Course for Viva Presentation & Practice is The Final Viva Weekend (23rd – 25th November 2018)
