The best practice for passing this exam is to practice as many questions as you can. Try our sample questions which are in the style of the exam by clicking on the 'practice mcqs' link . The sample questions are referenced to the evidence source, and curriculum linked. There also handy links attached to the questions to relevant important documents such as NICE guidance summaries, GMC guidance, DVLA guidance etc.


Try to identify the areas that you are weakest in. Improvement in these areas is likely to lead to the biggest improvement in your total score, provided the topics carries a significant proportion of the total mark. nb candidates tend to like practicing areas they are already good at because they feel reassured by being able to answer questions correctly.  However the improvement is small because new knowledge is not being acquired.

  • Identify your weak areas and tackle these early
