How to pass the Part 2 MRCOG Examination – Volume 2
This article is the Volume 2 of “How to pass the Part 2 MRCOG Examination” series that consists of three volumes. This volume discusses the “Level 2 analysis: How are you Tested?” comprehensively.
This volume provides a comprehensive coverage of the structure and process of the Part 2 MRCOG Examination that the candidates must understand thoroughly to learn the rule of the game. In fact it is more important than reading as you need to know the format and distribution of the marks in different components of the examination and their significance. It also includes in depth analysis of the distribution of marks in different components of the examination e.g. EMQs, MCQs and SAQs, and strategies to maximise the marks obtained in the examination. There is guidance about the marks candidates should aim for to qualify for the OSCEs. This guidance would be very useful to plan your strategy and prepare for the examination.
The format of the Part 2 MRCOG examination has changed significantly since March 2011. Since then the emphasis has shifted substantially from the SAQs to the EMQs primarily and the MCQs to a lesser extent. This means that the candidates need to modify their approach towards the examination. Several candidates, especially who have appeared in the examination before, but have been unsuccessful, are frightened and confused about how to prepare efficiently given the enormity of changes in the format.
Volume 3 of “How to pass the Part 2 MRCOG Examination” series highlights the preparation, answering techniques and tips for different formats e.g. EMQs, MCQs, SAQs and OSCEs to improve the candidates’ performance in the examination.
This effort is meant to guide and help the prospective candidates prepare well so that they would be in a better shape when they appear in the examination. Over the years, hundreds of candidates have benefited by following these methods.
The candidates would also find it helpful to use the examination and trainee materials provided in the MCQs, EMQs, SAQs, OSCEs, Examination, Career, Trainee, Health sections of themedideas.com in the form of Banks, Tests, Articles etc.
