I found the weekend course to be a thoroughly enjoyable and extremely useful experience. It taught me key ways of structuring CASC stations to enable me to function at my best during the stations and gave me confidence. Thank you again.
The course is fantastic and gives a great approach to tackling the CASC.
I attended the Birmingham CASC weekend course in August 2019. This was run professionally with a wide range of excellent and relevant case examples, and plenty of opportunity to practice as well as obtain personalised feedback on my performance. I felt that I really improved throughout the 2 day intensive course both in my exam technique in addition to confidence in demonstrating my knowledge under exam conditions. The actors were of a high standard and psychiatrist facilitators were all approachable and understanding about what is required to pass the CASC. I would recommend the course to anyone sitting their MRCPsych CASC exam.
I managed to pass the CASC (all stations!) and found the course to be excellent in terms of preparation.
Dear Dr Mishra, I just wanted to let you know that I passed the CASC (all 16 stations) & am hugely hugely thrilled and very thankful. I want to say a massive thank you to you for all your help and the great encouragement you gave me on the Birmingham CASC weekend course at the end of the summer. In the actual exam as you suggested, I imagined all of the scenarios were absolutely real (not an exam at all) & purely focussed on trying my best to help the ‘patient’ in front of me. It was an amazing help to do this & seems to have worked. I found both the course and all your videos & tutorials invaluable - especially your introductory talks at the beginning too on trying to get the right mindset. Overall I just wanted to say how grateful I am and so very thankful for all your input and really appreciated the very supportive, kind & ‘safe’ environment of the course and of course all those on your team who helped, taught & acted.
