Description

Paper A covers both the scientific and theoretical basis of Psychiatry. Consisting of key aspects of psychology, basic neurosciences, Psychopharmacology and assessment, this paper is designed to cover the topics and formats you’re likely to expect from your Paper A examination.

Our Paper A course features over 1000s of questions of various formats and topics. Taking the form of Best of Fives and Extended Matching Items, these questions are structured to give you as relevant a revision resource as possible.

Every Birmingham Course is consistently updated to reflect the most recent Royal College syllabus. As knowledge bases expand so too does our scope and style of questioning.

Our team of expert clinicians and academics develop a comprehensive collection of questions that all offer evidence-based explanations. This means that every answer is supported with clear references to standard textbooks, journals, guidelines and more.

Using The Birmingham Course resource, your revision can take three forms - topic wise, timed tests, or 20/20 test - a test that randomly selects 20 questions from the topic and gives you a 20 minute period to complete. Detailed notes for each topic are available.
