A revision resource created by doctors for doctors.

Our Aims

Our aim is to provide MRCPsych students with a new breed of revision resource. More than just an up-to-date study tool, each course is designed with feedback at its heart. It takes more than repetition and revision to truly grasp a topic and that's why we developed courses that are built on progress tracking and evidence-based answers. Our question bank is packed with high quality, expertly written questions that are each partnered with evidence-centred answers that easily and clearly direct you to the textbooks, journals and guidelines you recognise. We're driven by finding ways to make revision more personalised, and so have created a variety of note taking and tagging tools that allow you to truly tailor your revision and its progress.

With these innovative features comes a new understanding of the courses themselves and that's something we continue to explore alongside our users.

Results

We want you to have a real-time idea of how your revision is progressing so we created our Progress report feature. With every topic comes the ability to assess where your weaknesses are and to tailor how and what you learn. Unlock expert notes, access the most up-to-date questions available and become part of the BC medical community.

User Feedback

We think our courses are pretty good but don't just take it from us! Why don't you check out what our existing users think?
