If you're just about to go into your final year of study, the SJT will be fast appearing on your horizon.
Doing well in the exam could be the deciding factor in getting placed in your first-choice foundation school – so it's vital that you give yourself ample time to prepare and practise.
The MDU has a range of resources to help you get ahead.
It's often said that you can't 'study' for your SJT, as rather than testing your clinical knowledge it's designed to test your decision-making and the professional attributes you need to work as a foundation doctor.
You certainly can't cram for the test, or learn the answers by rote. But there are many things you can do to make sure you are able to tackle the exam with confidence.
