Typed answers in the Essay Exam Update

According to the November 2017 Training Newsletter the College is actively considering a computer based essay exam.


At present the College are "not satisfied that the examination vendor can supply services that meet the College’s requirements" which is not surprising as it would seem to me that this is a much bigger challenge than delivering an MCQ exam on-line.


Here at Prepare4RANZCP we are ready to go and will be accepting typed essay and modified essay submissions as soon as we hear a definite announcement from the College.


I am sure some of the challenges that the College are facing include whether to allow or disable spelling checking and grammar checking, and whether you allow any writing on paper (essay planning), and if so, what you do with the paper at the end of the exam?

Feedback from recent Courses

"I passed the Essay type with CEQ 74% and MEQ 60%. I must thank you for all the incredible feedback you provided.

The CEQ I attempted exactly as you had guided me via practice ones. I was left with only 32 mins to attempt it but I took about 4 to plan it and rest to write it in simple short sentences - worked fine I guess.

You are fabulous !!!!!"


"I especially appreciated the lecture style CAP tutorial.


I think the obscure and random nature of some of the questions in the prep course (more so in the EMQ) gave a good preparation for the strange questions that came up in the exam.


One of the things that I found difficult to get my head around in the exam was that the questions were not grouped by topic, so you'd have one question on phenomenology, next on management of D&A.


It was a little disconcerting, so perhaps let people know to expect that (especially if they are used to doing the paper-based practice past papers). The questions also were not grouped, so most of them had a whole new set of answers for each question (so you couldn't even eliminate answers based on what you'd already used)"


"The exam was very hard. There were numerous clinical questions which were quite ambiguous and there were also many questions on psychotherapy. There were many unheard-of names in psychotherapy and these were to be matched with a single technical word or phrase associated with the person. The CAP questions were qualitative analysis and the other one was a case-control of some sort."


"I am a Sydney registrar who undertook your essay exam course. Just wanted to let you know that I passed comfortably, and am very thankful for your guidance and support along the way. My essay writing improved dramatically by using the skills I learned in the course, and I ended up scoring especially highly in the CEQ."


"I would like to share my joy with you. I have passed the MCQ exam in August 17. Your MCQ course, particularly the CAP has been very helpful for this exam. Thank you very much for your support."


" Thank you for your amazing course. You picked the last question (on pseudoseizures) which was very helpful!"


"Thank you so much for all your feedback , ongoing support and motivation! I really appreciated the personal feedback. I think I did much better than last time, finished 2 min early :-)"


"I especially appreciated the essay feedback, all I hope for now is that I have passed.."


"I thought I'd let you know I got through the MEQ/CEQ. I so appreciate all your help with the preparation"


"I think your course is one of the best preparations available out there, especially when working remote with no training program/ trainees in the service."


"Your course has been very useful for me as a candidate trained in a different country, especially regarding the broader humanistic and cultural perspectives relevant to the RANZCP."


"Not sure if you included this in your course already, but avoiding having too much fluid before the exam is important, so that you don't waste time busting or in the bathroom!"


"I failed but it's quite ok.  Some tweaking to do for next time. Also I need to actually complete the online courses next time."
