FGDP(UK) Scotland’s tuition groups are among the most successful in the UK. They are also unique in that they offer monthly tuition evenings designed to build knowledge. This approach is designed to provide candidates with long-term learning as opposed to one-off, intensive sessions.
Great preparation for the MJDF
I joined the West of Scotland MJDF exam study group because I was keen to sit the exam to help me further my career and I hoped the study group would provide some direction for my preparation for the first and second parts.
A few of my friends were in a similar position and they decided to join also. The group has been invaluable in preparing me for Part 1 of the exam. The study evenings have been really well planned by the tutors, who have clearly put in a huge amount of effort to provide useful study materials and give tips on exam technique. Almost every topic which was included in the study evenings before the Part 1 exam was in the paper-so there were very few nasty surprises on the day!
As well as the study evenings, the forum posts have been helpful; I liked that papers were posted about specific topics which were to be discussed at the next study evening and then further reading material provided afterwards. This allowed me to prepare for each study evening and get the maximum benefit from them.
The mock exam before Part 2 of the exam was very useful preparation also, as it was in the same OSCE-based style that the exam will be. Some of the stations were very challenging, particularly the actor-based ones. It was good to have the opportunity to experience this style of exam before sitting the real thing and it made the prospect of sitting part 2 less daunting.
I would definitely recommend the course to anyone considering sitting the MJDF exam, not only for the content of the study evenings. It was a chance to catch up with friends on a regular basis and everyone supported each other through what can often be a very stressful experience.
