Have you tried our A to Z Section?
Trainees in Paediatrics must pass their
exams to progress through the training programme. Detailed
information about the exams can be found on the
Exam preparation is included in the Paediatric Regional Education Programme
(PREP) at the end of each training day. Trainees in Wessex have
also produced a guide to
passing your Membership which is available to download.
In order to progress to
2 both parts of
Part 1 must be passed. It is worthwhile, therefore, to start taking
the part 1 exams as soon as the
1 year is started. Some will have
taken some exams prior to entering the specialty.
If you are struggling with your exams, please
let your educational supervisor and the deanery team know as we may
be able to help with your exam preparation technique.
If you have not passed your 1B when you are
due to move to
will remain in
posts and will be allowed up to 1 year additional training to
achieve this. If, despite an extra year in training, you are unable
to pass your exams, you are likely to be released from training
unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Likewise, in order to progress from
4 the clinical part 2 exam must be
passed. We do have some middle grade
3 posts and thus you may remain in
3 yet still do middle
grade posts for up to 1 additional year. If you have already had
extra time to pass previous exams this will be taken into account
as you can only have one extra year of training in total, to pass
Remember, if you are having trouble passing
exams, or if there are personal circumstances (e.g.
health, family etc, we don’t need details, obviously) hampering
your attempts, let the deanery team know early on so that we can
help sooner rather than later.
