specialist ST question writers

11 posts in this topic

I have known people sending questions to certain agencies, which help with writing the answers for ST questions. Isn't it illegal to do that? Whatever happens to the anti plagiarism software? Here we r, spending hours, doing nothing else, but scratching our heads to write good answers, while some people sit back, carry on with life as normal, while people help them out with answering quetions for a certain fee! This whole selection process is a sham!

This is the website which writes the answers for u

It must be a very seasonal business!

On another note, the risk is just not worth taking as other people may have very similar/identical answers and this could cause all sorts of trouble.  It's also likely to mess you up at the interview.

So I don't think that money answereth all things.

I can't imagine anyone crafting an answer as good as what we could come up with on our own given our expertise in ourselves. The questions demand so much detail and info from personal experience that I hope more people HAVE used that service, I would feel more confident in getting shortlisted. I don't believe psychiatry trainees are that way inclined.

I would completely agree with you if this form was the decider but the fact is even the best form will only buy you the chance of an interview, with four to one odds of a job. Those people can sham the form but they still have the interview. If you get someone else to write your scenarios then you will get caught out by a left field question in the interview. Unless you had actually been there and lived the experience you will not be able answer quick enough and they will see through you. Add to that the worry of sitting there wondering if the plagerism software is going to catch you out, or going to interview knowing the application is not really all your work. The interview will be stressful enough without wondering if they are going to catch you out on your dodgy application.

Those who go for that option thinking its the easy way out of this are ignoring the stress that lies ahead. MTAS is sending us all up shit creek, personally I would like to know that I made my own paddle and wasn't relying on somebody elses handywork. Especially as this company won't care what happens to you once they have your money.

Its so appaling that some of our colleagues use proffessionals to write the answers for them!!But I wonder how can u get that 'personal touch' to your questions asking a complete stranger to fill in your form?

I think colleagues who are doing this are taking a chance with their applications.Lets see if the antiplagiarism software the MMC has is any good :)

I think this form is logically and cleverly designed ,,,if i have to do home work for my school going boy ,,it does match the mental and chronological age,,so every person gives a very unique personalised touch and feeling to the reader.....if some one else helps you chances are that u will be under immense adrenaline rush ..cant say much any comments

raja, perhaps u can write to MTAS and ask whether it is legal! If they say it is, then fine. If they say it isn't- well what the hell r they going to do about it? :o However I agree with the others that there is nothing better than personal experience and I would be able to write any answer better myself, than relying on somebody who I have never met in life

First the Disclaimer : I havent used the specialized services, nor do I intend to.

I think it is perfectly legal. They are seeking help and writing answers. If the whole answer is actually written by others, then morally and legally it is questionable.

Professional help never hurts ( apart for the purse!)

I would not do it, cause I dont feel it is necessary. If it becomes a necessity and it is cheap, who knows?

At the end of the day we never stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Any new system will soon have people devising ways to circumvent it. As far as i am concerned this system has left more gaps to circumvent and allow quite incapable individuals getting posts.

smells like a good old-fashioned cash-in, breeding on the fear which has been created and the anxieties of the day. Good luck to all who have searched within their own experience to answer these beasts.
