Sign up for Buddy Match Round 2 – Revision scheme for MRCPCH clinical exam October 2023

This scheme aims to provide candidates sitting the MRCPCH clinical exam with peer-to-peer revision practice opportunities in the run up to the exam. It works around your own existing schedules and working patterns to match candidates with the same availability.

This next round of the scheme runs from 25th September until 15th October 2023. Each and every day of this period there are 3 Buddy Match revision sessions (10:00-11:00, 14:00-15:00 and 19:00-20:00).

Please fill in the form below to register and let us know your availability for each of the sessions. We will then provide you with the dates and sessions where you have been matched successfully, along with Teams Link to sign up to.

We will aim to match you with a variety of peers, to maximise your learning from each other. If there are 3 candidates available for a session there will be someone in reserve in case of someone cancelling. This will be decided based on giving preference to those candidates with fewer matches.
