Thank you very much Dr Mishra for this great website. I have passed the CASC first attempt because this website helped me in many ways. First, it had videos for even the rare stations (e.g financial capacity, TLE etc.) and they ended up coming in the exam. Second, providing the actual sentences to be asked to the patient was very important to someone like me, an overseas graduate. Third, your reply to the emails and your detailed answers to my questions and support was really of great help. The fact that I’m an oversees graduate, my first language is not English and I’m not a trainee and I passed the first attempt means that the CASC is not impossible, but easily achievable with the right support. Thanks again.
These videos definitely gave me the edge and made the difference between passing the CASC or failing it narrowly. I particularly recommend it for Staff Grades who are not in a regular study group and also for Trainees to watch when taking a break from practicing stations. The videos are of a very good quality and Dr Mishra’s style of interviewing is excellent. It was indeed an investment that proved to be well worth it.
Having recently passed the CASC I wanted to say how helpful I found PasstheCASC.com (now on birminghamcourse.co.uk) as a revision tool. The videos were a great way of revising on my own at home when I couldn’t practice with a group. I found it really helpful to be able to see an example of some particularly tricky stations where I didn’t have a clue how to tackle it myself beforehand. I could also use the website to study when I was tired after a busy day at work. I would definitely recommend this as a useful resource for revision and it was the only online resource I used in my preparation for the exam
I found PasstheCASC.com (now birminghamcourse.co.uk) to be a fantastic resource to supplement group practice. It helped me with general skills like the pacing and how to formulate your questions but also really helped with breaking down the tricky stations that you hear about but wouldn’t begin to know how to approach. I would highly recommend this site to anyone sitting CASC and think it makes understanding and preparing for the exam a lot easier.
It was a big challenge for me specially as an international trainee who was graduated from an international country, but those videos helped me to have good structures for different stations and to be able to manage the time even with long stations.
