Trainees will need 6 months solid exam preparation and it is recommended that once trainees have decided on the timing of their exam then they should start revision ASAP by working through the RCoA e-LA section of the Primary FRCA exam and the recommended text books. http://www.rcoa.ac.uk/e-la
It is the Schools suggestion that trainees appointed in February should attempt the November MCQ giving them 9 months of solid preparation. If a trainee should be unsuccessful, then they have the opportunity of resitting the MCQ exam in February.
Trainees appointed in August, should attempt the MCQ in September or November.
