GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE SITTING!
It's a big day on Thursday for everyone finishing up from the current fellowship course - the fellowship written!
Preparing for the big day is exactly what the course is all about. It's natural to be a bit scared the day before the exam, but we want you to think about the exam in the context of the fellowship course.
"Above all, we want you to remember the immortal words of Douglas Adams: Don't Panic!"
This is the time when you have to remind yourself of how much you do know….and you do know a huge amount! As we have taught in the face to face days and the course itself it's important to think about what you're doing on the day, not just charge blindly at the exam.
Remember, with good technique you can usually reduce an MCQ to a binary choice at worst, even if you have no idea of what the answer actually is. There are specific techniques for putting the odds in your favour.
The EMQ should be straightforward. Narrow down the field and give yourself the best chance.
Make your SAQ answers consultant level. Maximize the details you include so that you give yourself the highest chance of scoring marks. Remember the common and "high yield" xrays, ECGs and gases you've been taught. If you are stuck, there's a good chance these will help you.
YOU HAVE PRACTICED ALL OF THIS AS PART OF YOUR FELLOWSHIP COURSE.
Above all, we want you to remember the immortal words of Douglas Adams: Don't Panic!
The exam is about preparation, work and thought. You've done all this as part of the course.
