MRCOG Part II underwent major rework in 2015. In 2016, there was a new change – The written exam has been disconnected from the OSCEs! We believe this is a good thing.
The format of the exam was totally changed in 2015. The paper is split into two types of questions – EMQs and SBAs (single best answer). The SBAs are single-best-answer type. EMQs are typical extended matching questions with a Lead In, Options and Stems. You will be faced with 100 SBAs and 100 EMQs. However, the weightage for EMQs is higher at 60% of your total score. GEM focuses on the EMQs and SBAs as we feel that with good overall preparation and targeted EMQ preparation, you are looking at a comfortable pass. We will discuss SBAs at the Course as well and give you insight from candidates who have sat for the exam previously.
Gynaepedia Examination Masterclass
Gynaepedia Examination Masterclass is an interactive two-day course held at Torquay, Devon. The course is very intense and deconstructs the anatomy of MRCOG II. We aim to unravel the mystery behind EMQs as knowing your enemy is the first step towards ultimate victory. The days are split between Obstetrics & Gynaecology. Hot topics are covered first, followed by important favourites of the College. The emphasis is to do as many Questions that we can through the day to give you practice. More importantly, we modify your approach to the Questions so that you can swiftly tackle them on D-Day. The content is heavily audited to reflect College favourites. There are no theoretical lectures. All topics are discussed in Q&A format. By the end of the course, you will have devised a technique which can translate into a high score for the exam. We aim to equip you with confidence as you face your first Questions on the day of the Exam.
The Masterclass is highly individualised. Quality is imperative which is why we have limited seats. We leave no one behind and the Course aims to get you through the Exam with a high score.
