I then followed your tips and focused on high yield topics, GP admin and stats over the last week or so and I think this made all the difference. I scored 80% on Stats and 95% on GP admin/Organisational areas..Dr A A - AKT January 2013
"I just wanted to let you know that I passed my exam in October with 87%
>I had scored 79% in the mock exam at the course and 81% in the Emedica mock exam post attending the course.As I had returned to training in general practice, only three weeks prior to taking the exam, after having had a 10 yr break, this was a pleasant and welcome surprise. The course did cover some really useful material and the timed mock exam after the course was what really made me feel that maybe I CAN DO IT! Many thanks for your advice, especially about taking a break to relax during the exam itself! This was invaluable and helped me to refocus." !!<Dr S A - AKT October 2012

"Thank you very much for all your advice, guidance and enthusiasm which I believe greatly contributed to me passing my AKT at the first attempt, despite being heavily pregnant at the time!!! I found the Emedica AKT preparation course very useful in helping me to focus my revision.
I also found the mock tests particularly useful and at the same level as the exam itself. The mock exam that you made available after the course was also a great revision tool
and definitely highlighted the importance of good time keeping in the AKT exam! I will definitely be recommending this course to my colleagues!" Dr A S ST2 London
