@santa I would say read and PRACTICE stations. Spend the first few weeks doing this and the last few weeks of revision watching videos. Most of the videos are produced by people with no current knowledge of the exams, they are only useful for revision.

 

on the day of the exam stay calm and and do your best

Hi!

 I am preparing for the CASC in September, and have been worrying about this too.

As an overseas doctor I could sit in Hong Kong or the UK.

Any guidance on this would be really welcome.. I've already done the math; that's not really what I'm asking about. Someone told me that exams conducted outside the UK tend to be harder.

Do you think that might in fact be true??

Hi!

Does anyone have guidance on what online materials to pick? 

I plan on getting the SPMM online course asap. 

I was wondering about the online course offered by Passthecasc . com. They have online feedback on offer. 

Does anyone have any experience with it? Is it useful to get?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Saumya I bought the Spmm videos but there arent many. Theres only 63 and some of them are not that good. Ive bought the pass the Casc module now for 3 months. Thats a lot better. You can book 3x 90 mins sessions with Dr Mishra who runs the course.

Hi all,

I studied for CASC by regularly practicing stations with friends from a book called Pass The CASC (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/1498707890/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488701670&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=casc&dpPl=1&dpID=41U%2BxOB4VsL&ref=plSrch). It provides brief scenarios and an excellent marking scheme for each. I found getting used to 7 and 10 minutes helpful and also getting comfortable with making mistakes infront of others!

I also used the SPMM videos but I found the associated handouts a bit too much to read through. As its a practical exam I felt practicing clinical skills was key. If you've passed A and B the knowledge is there, its just a case of conveying it to a patient in a simplistic way.

 

I didnt go on any courses but we did a practice CASC here in Edinburgh. I wouldn't recommend the Pass the CASC book by Dr Moodliar, I found it to be a bit overinclusive in terms of their approaches to stations and I'm sorry to say that it was poorly written!

 

Practice. Practice. Practice. Keep calm and you'll be fine.

 

Happy to speak further with anyone if it'd be helpful. Good luck!
