    Wishing all who are preparing for the September part 1 exam, the very best.

    Remember to go through the 1999-2001 past MCQ booklet; more than 80% of the March, 2012
    Mcqs were repeats, though some were slightly altered. If you do well here you’re sure of almost ½ of
    the total score. I went through that book more than twice.

    For the SBA’s, clinical experience is crucial but not mandatory. The questions were very lengthy, but I think it was a strategy to distract us. Each question had a central theme. Find it!

    Some of the March, 2012 past questions have been recalled under the following threads;
    “Recall MRCOG 1 questions†and “ MRCOG part 1 March, 2012 experience.â€

    More March 2012 themes/questions:
