hi Melissa

I attended the mock in Birmingham in Dec 2016 and it was a superb experience as they were very organised and kept the new stations like FAMILY THERAPY, SEROTONIN SYNDROME, PREGNANT LADY WITH SODIUM VALPROATE .

I will check if they are organising again then I will definitely go on 8th January.

yes I have just now checked examzguru.com and they are conducting the mock.

Thank you so much Melissa for letting me know.

god bless you.
