GP Stage 3

Are there a number of tutors teaching the course at the same time?
There are two tutors who run the morning session. This involves an interactive lecture on each aspect of the selection centre (including the new scenarios for 2011). There are examples of these simulated scenarios within these sessions. There is a mock written prioritisation exercise after this. The afternoon is run by more tutors who facilitate the small group teaching.
 
What is the maximum number of students per course?
There is one tutor, one actor and a maximum of 5 candidates in each consulting room. You are not taught in groups of more than this.
 
How much time is devoted to practising role-play scenarios on the course?
The afternoon session (1.30pm to 5.30pm) is dedicated to practising the role-plays where you are given written feedback on each one by your tutor.

How many role-play scenarios does each candidate get to practice with the actor?
Each candidate practises a minimum of 3 scenarios and everyone gets to do one with a patient, a healthcare professional and a relative.

Has the course been updated in line with the new assessment process?
This course is fully updated for the new format. By the end of the day you will have carried out each element (written and 3 simulations). This replicates the experience you can expect at the selection centre, and you are given detailed individual feedback.
