Notes from the Director, Dr David Gray & Consultant Faculty Leads, Dr Iestyn Harrod & Dr Dominic Cliff:

The Course is only available to Candidates who are on the threshold of the Primary Examination.
It is pointless and wasteful of time, effort & money to come to this course unless intending to sit the Examination imminently and thus with having done sufficient work in preparation for the exam.
It should not be considered as a First Step in Revision or Preparation. 

The Course
Intensive Course of SBA & MCQ Analysis Group Work
Long Days – 12 hours a day – Evening Close 20.00
Hard Work – Casual Manner & Dress – Great Spirit
Camaraderie Galore – You should not come to this Course if you are not willing to work in a Group Environment

It is not a course of SBA & MCQ Practice. This can be done at home. It is a Course of Question Exposure, Analysis & Group Discussion.
It is important that trainees understand:
The course has no didactic input
Trainees should not come to the course expecting to be taught
Trainees should come to the course expecting to learn
As indeed they will.

A Note on Group Work:
It is advised that you reconsider your application to this course should you not be willing to work efficiently and in harmony within a Group Environment.
This is not a course for Individual Revision/Private Study.
The MSA strongly believes that the Group Work aspect of our Courses, if undertaken correctly, is a strong contributor to their success.
It is unfair to those members of a Group who are willing to ‘Play the Game’ if there are individuals who refuse to engage within their Group.
Anyone who comes to this course wanting to work as an individual will be asked to leave.

Re-Attending this Course
We do not think it is the best use of time or money to re-attend our Courses as much of the Material will be the same as you were exposed to previously.
However, unlike our Courses with Limited Places, we do allow re-attendance to the Primary MCQ/SBA Course with the above warning.
We would not want re-attending Candidates to leave feeling that they have not gained full benefit from their time and their money.
