Final tips
• Multiple practice questions help to highlight
favourite topics
• RCOG are loving statistics at the moment (Mr.
Griffiths to blame)
• Making notes without attempting questions is
likely to be working hard not smart
• Lots of people fail first time and then know it
better in the long term
