Sorry to hear ur bad news Sobia. Crack on for October now, mmooney gave some good study resources earlier in the thread. Shell out for a 'popular' revision package and use the mocks too. Focus on the qus and not the notes. YOU WILL PASS, it's a matter of time.

Hi


I passed, though I do think it was a bit of a freak event.

I'd agree with MMooney in not relying too heavily on notes/courses. But the caveat is that for those of us who trained outside the UK, the material isn't necessarily part of one's daily practice. So just to repeat what others have said, it makes sense to read around the topic. Courses (mrcpsychmentor in my case) helps to give one some idea of the syllabus (I tend to glaze over while reading the syllabus list).

The other thing which I discovered for the first time this time is that the college seems to rely quite heavily on its set of previous questions, so collating the questions here into a document and reading through those topics would be a good first step. I'd meant to, but the effort lost steam at some point. (I'd made a start with Oct 15, but it's very patchy). There's another document on the April 2015 thread that's probably worth everyone's while.

A lot of people undermine the massive the impact of MRCpsychmentor in paper B. I personally used only MRCpsych mentor, spmm mocks and stat videos to passed April paper B.

I have never used superego resources and hence it would be unfair for me to positively or negatively comment about it.

I used mrcpsych mentor and it was very useful.  Especially for core psychiatry. Good quality questions and descriptions. For  statistics its not that helpful. Also use maudsley and oxford handbook or  any other text books for reference.
