commiserations guys

I passed but the others who sat it with me and who had done the SPMM course and question bank etc failed, some for the second and third time

I would reiterate not to waste money on the courses and go by the syllabus checking each item off as you cover it, that's what I did for paper A in December and this one, both passed first time, didn't leave a single item out on the syllabus

It must have been a toughie if only 44% passed

I got 75.8% overall, awful score in C&A but then again I haven't done that post yet, otherwise all good. Most people did better than me in the critical appraisal but then again I didn't do a course, but still shows you don't need to to pass. 

I used the Oxford Handbook, Maudsley and Drs Guide to Critical Appraisal and two good MCQ books, Best of Five MCQs and paper 3 and Paper B 600 MCQs, both free from the library

has anyone requested for a remark? It costs £130 pounds, and sounds like a bit of a rip-off, but I failed by 0.1%... 

 

Would you guys do it?

i just rang the examinations team at RCPsych. They advised not to as it was very unlikely for the results to change. He said that the answer sheets are marked by a machine, and when they are remarked, they are done by hand. He said that he had been doing it for 4 years, and has never seen marks change. 

 

I think i'd rather just resit the exam. Don't think I want to go through the anxiety of waiting for the remark, only to get the same marks back again!

I passed this time around, in my second attempt.

It felt a lot easier than the exam in October 2015, although perhaps that was because I was better prepared.

 CA was my weakest point; most people had done better than me..
