Mock Examinations

At Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), we run an MRCPCH mock exam twice a year, which is based on the MRCPCH clinical examination format.You will be able to experience the exam conditions and gain valuable experience on communication skills, history taking, clinical examination, child development assessment and time management.
