I will share tips from diary kept by one of my colleagues who passed the MRCPH recently ……….
Stations in which there is no pre station reading (Clinicals/development/video): keep your exam paper ready in your hand and jump right into the door, when the bell rings. (Don’t *ram* into it),
Moment the bell rings your time has already started.
for development – go to the beach/mall with a fellow student. Do a visual development assessment for every child there.
These days when you cannot go out and neither your children go to school – practice with them – normal precautions are advised ….. Not advocating but ‘incentives’ can some times do wonders …
Obviously keep a distance. Have development tables with you.
– breathe Mrcpch as much as you can prior to exams. Communicate in real life for all Medical /non medical scenarios. Counsel friends in a tough time. Even if enemy is having a tough / good time counsel them, let them talk, but finish in 6 min then repeat what you’ve discussed and arrange a further meeting.
Night before exam mentally prepare yourself at do what you are going to do in each station.
Optimise examination technique using pillow cases plus minus pillows!
