    As the founder of this website, I can assure
    "any exam related stuffs would be completely free to access for life"

    Why spend a fortune when each one of us can help each other.
    I nearly spent£2000 a year and managed to fail CASC successfully.:mad:
    Few tips
    Sometimes luck matters, some might call it "communication skills"
    When the time come your will pass
    Share your knowledge and save YOUR MONEY TO TAKE YOUR FAMILY FOR A HOLIDAY.
    I attended the following courses
    SPMM champion £1500
    RCPsych course - £350
    Hertforshire mock £50
    I found all useful, but the most is the Hertforshire mock run by STs. This is my personal impression. I heard there is casc mock run by Maudsley trust in London.

    Expensive mocks are useful.
    But equally there are other cacs mocks done locally by various trusts for £50
    I know of few- like in Essex, Hertfordshire.
    I and other colleagues attended the casc mock run by Hertfordshire ST's trainees.
    All my fellow colleagues found it very useful including myself. Well organised with consultant feedbacks.
    I hope this continues to help the future colleagues.

    Trainees in HEEoE (Health Eduction East of England Deanery - former Eastern Deanery) are so privileged to attend up to 9 days of Deanery funded casc training course before each CASC exam. I hope the funding continues and the trainees do appreciate it.
    These sessions are run and organised by consultant Dr Albert Michael with feedbacks from consultants and professional role players. The venues can be anywhere within HEEoE.
    Thanks to his unprecedented commitments to train the future psychiatrists is priceless.
    If I was CT1, I would select Suffolk as I heard most of the consultants in Suffolk are also casc examiners.
    In September 2015 CASC , there was 100% pass rate in that region.
    Suffolk is part of NSFT- Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust.

    Yesterday I attended a CASC mock in London - CAMDEN AND ISLINGTON NHS FOUNDATION TRUST, London NW1 0P, run by STs.
    I would rate this mock as excellent and give 5 stars.
    In spite of only costing £100 each, there were professional role players.
    The general feedback session from examiners and role players was very useful.
    The individual feedbacks on the marking sheets by senior colleagues was excellent.
    As always there is room for improvements, hence to consider the candidates feedbacks.
    I am sure this mock would be popular in future, I hope the mock fee continues to remain reasonable, esp. when Mr Hunt is cutting down the poor junior doctors salaries.

    UPDATE on 29 Nov 2017
    Now I understand the fee is £300 from a each flyover.

    Thanks. What do you mean by 'it's a test only'? Is it not a mock exam?

    Yesterday I attended a casc mock in Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow

    Only £50 each (thanks to fellow colleagues with their excellent talents to role play as real patients, esp. the manic patient);)
    I found it very useful and great
    We had individual feedbacks from high quality examiners - great

    I am sure the organisers would act on the candidates feedbacks and hope this continues.
