Paper A - What Royal college of Psychiatry expect from us

6 posts in this topic

Dear friends....

I recently appeared for Paper A exam....and many of you must have also sat recently...

What do you think about paper A(i)

What do you all think  RCPsych---exam board expects from us

Recently they have combined Paper 1(Ai) & 2(Aii) to make Paper A-  doubling the syllabus for us to appear all in one go, in one day

On top of that they made paper A(i) so tough that many of us, even the ones with best of their preparation, found so difficult to solve...

I am sure, if this paper is given to  the faculty members or teaching consultants to solve, even they might find it diificult to solve in 90 minutes.....

We, trainees, do have regular teaching (MRCPsych teaching course) organised locally or by the deanery...but I dont think that the standard of teaching matches the standard of exam at all....If they expect high standard of knowledge from their trainees...why cant  they teach us to that high standard.

what are your thoughts about this?

It would be really helpful if someone can guide a bit about paper A, its revision and courses.
