AKT special podcast

Our latest podcast is a joint RCGP and InnovAiT podcast special to help prepare you for the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) exam for MRCGP. Over 35 minutes we hear about successful revision techniques, processes and top tips from trainees, trainers and the RCGP deputy lead for the AKT.

Dr Laura Armitage, an ST2 in Oxford, interviews Dr Rachel Brettell, an ST2 in the Thames Valley, about revising for and sitting the exam with the extra challenge of being a new mother.
Dr Faraz Mughal, a ST3 in the West Midlands, provides learning points from his recent experience sitting the AKT.
Dr Martin Sutcliffe, an ST2 in Dewsbury, Wakefield and Pontefract VTS, interviews his training programme director, Dr John Featherstone, about his experience of the AKT in preparation for becoming a CSA examiner.

Dr Simon Glew, Brighton GP, interviews Dr Chris Elfes, RCGP deputy lead for the AKT, about how the exam is written and structured, how fairness is maintained across sittings, setting pass rates, what provisions are available for candidates with learning difficulties, the differential pass rate between International and UK graduates and his take on revision courses.
