Feedback from our previous AKT preparation courses:
This 1 day course will help you assess your readiness and prepare for the AKT examination. By working through our 4 teaching mocks, which are done in a timed environment with screen layouts similar to the real exam, you will get used to the time pressures, question formats and key techniques to get through your AKT.
After each teaching mock, we will go through the answers and have rapid reviews of the key knowledge / topics / current guidelines you need to be aware of. The 4 mocks combined cover 200 questions in the same proportion as the real AKT - 160 clinical, 20 evidence based practice, and 20 organisational / admin. This will give you a realistic idea of your performance, giving you a clear idea of which topics to focus on for your last week of revision.

after the course - this has 200 AKT questions in the current exam format
with feedback and explanations.
