AKT Exam Preparation Workshop 

Thursday 14th and Thursday 21st January 2021  (09:30 - 12:30)

This workshop runs over two half days and requires attendance on both half days

The workshop aims to provide an understanding of the working of the AKT examination and how to prepare for it using the core objectives outlined below:

•          To share a broad overview of the AKT examination in the wider context of general practice

•          To help candidates appreciate how questions are typically constructed and presented

•          To encourage candidates to find successful learning and revision strategies and to enhance their examination technique

•          To highlight the impact of dyslexia and how the exam can accommodate this and other disabilities

Please note that this course will offer many insights on how to be successful in the AKT but the tutors do not have access to the RCGP question bank and do not ‘teach’ on hot topics or clinical medicine.

The sessions are held three times a year allowing you the time needed to put into practice the techniques learnt prior to sitting the exam.
