  22. I found the EMQs more difficult than the MCQs - did feel like I was randomly guessing in a couple. Overall I thought the paper covered all the topics quite well - I didn't feel like I'd 'wasted time' spending too much revision on one topic for example. I thought the questions were reasonable and unambiguous (something I was worried about). Either you knew the answer or you didn't. I can't remember most of the topics but it looks like you've covered a lot of them. How did you find the exam?
  23. Hard to know what to make of this sitting. Mixed bag of reactions afterwards. Some of the things that came up: * Trancylpromine question * Varenciline question * MOA of Aripiprazole * Splicing * Personality disorders - ICD-10 definitions ect. At least three different questions, including an EMQ. * Valproate - % congenital abnormalities; % developmental delay (2 seperate questions) * Freud - Phallic Stage * Social Learning Theory and Gender theory * At least 2-3 Kohlberg questions * Camberwell Family Interview * High EE family * Duloxetine * Erikson's stages (EMQ) * Kubler-Ross (1 question) * Classical vs Operant Conditioning * Long question on minimum time to diagnose manic episode, delusional disorder, schizophrenia in ICD-10 * DSM-5 schizophrenia question * Most potent TCA in overdose? * Basal Ganglia EMQ * Which of these is a reward pathway (mesolimbic, mesocortical, tubuloinfundibular, incertohypothalamic and one other) * Where to find Lewy Bodies in Parkinson's * Earliest gross pathology in Alzheimers on neuroimaging * Gedankenlautwerden - definition * Anti-NDMA Recepter Encephalitis - Which Ig? * Strange Situation Experiment * Last area of the brain to fully develop? * EMQ on prejudice * A couple of questions on actuarial risk assessment, and the HCR-20 * Which antipsychotic is metabolised by CYP2A6 (? apparently them all. I may have read this question wrong) * What induces CYP1A2 (smoking) * Which of 5 laws was a Gestalt Law of Perception (Proximity) * Neuropathology of Huntington's * A few questions on the neuropathology of Alzheimer's * James-Lange Theory * Monotropy * Marcia's Identity Theories (EMQ) Anyone remember any others (or exact questions, for that matter)
  24. Hi, wanted to know if anyone who’s taken the exam has noted a correlation between their marks on the Mock and the actual paper - was it similar or was there a big difference? eg if you’re getting 60% on the mock, would you expect similar on the actual paper?
  25. How did you do on the mocks compared to the actual exam? Does the Score correlate well? eg if you were scoring 60% on the mocks would you expect 60 ish on exam
