  1. Dear Zoran,

    Thanks for the info.Any MCQ books for  this exam?.

    How long is the exam and how many questions ,please?

    Kind Regards,

    Catatonic

  2. Hi Tom, I would encourage you to sit at the earliest.There are a lot of variables in preparation i.e your posting, personal circumstances, learning style. Nevertheless,it's not too optimistic.You could start early now if you have time! All the best Catatonic
  3. Hi Fishtail, Mostly you will be told where you will be starting without options. I would send a urgent request to the deanery as you never know!. Kind Regards, Cata
  4. Dear All, Could anybody share their DGM clinical exam experience,please? Thanks -Catatonic
  5. Hi , DGM query- if anybody else has appeared or anybody else is preparing,I would appreciate you reply. Could you tell me whether they had ECG's or Xray's to interpret ,please?. How are the questions in general? I am unsure what to expect in the exam and I want to focus my effort in relevant questions. Thanks for your help. Cata

  7. Hi Hal, It is difficult to compare training at different levels in different countries but a focused approach to pass CASC may help your eligibilty for ST4.It is difficult to answer whether you may or may not be elgibile unlesss you try and the rules may change during the time you apply. It really depends why you want to do an CCT ? The usual pathway is to enter core training like other many overseas canditates inspite of their previous psychiatry qualification.Currently,it is much more easier to get into core training as visa is relatively flexible especially with current royal college recruitment drive. All the best , Catatonic
  8. Hi, It depends what you want,if it's a training post you want,you will get it if you are appointable. There is no harm in attempting exams but money,time, and effort generally are to be taken into consideration. Having a Part A may be an advantage for an interview but it is not essential . The theory papers have reduced in no,you may have more time during your training to attempt exams, All the best,Please see attached eligibilty criteria http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/pdf/MRCPsych Exams Eligibility Criteria and Regulations effective 14 January 2015.pdf
  9. Hi Surgical SHO, I support vertigo's post as the priority would be finish core training and exams which in itself can be challenging. There are always positives and negatives in changing carers but Psychiatry as a carer has it's own challenges. You will only know when you try it. Good Luck Catatonic
  10. Hi, I don't think swap is allowed in national recruitment. Good Luck, CA
  11. I am glad you know where you'r going I would suggest you to go BMJ careers fair as there were some stalls from Middle East.They were keen to recruit post MRCPsych. USA and UAE aren't that far anyway.............just two letters! All the best
  12. Congratulations on your success. I admire your perseverance and support.
  13. Hi, Click the guidance documents which will open up a list. The last choice will be interview questions 2015. best Wishes
  14. All options are reasonable if you can manage a work life balance.
  15. Hi, Have you contacted the Sec 12(2) approval panel in your region? It's quicker with Membership but without membership this may be delayed due to paperwork required. Good luck
