Oxfordpsych CASC Online Mock Exam format - NOW ONLINE 

Oxfordpsych CASC online Mock Exams are designed to fully replicate the RCPsych CASC examinations.  They provide you with a perfect platform to practice stations in exam conditions using an online platform.

Over the weekend, there are four CASC Online Mock Exams, one in the morning and one in the afternoon on both days. Each half day exam contains 16 stations, eight stations in the new format with four minute reading time and a focus on management, followed by eight short instruction stations with the usual ninety second reading time, and a mix of history and assessment stations. Each Mock exam will cover a range of specialities, according to the RCPsych CASC blueprint. Both Mock Exams each day will contain different sets of stations. 

Feedback is written and focuses on the skills, competencies and domains being assessed in RCPsych CASC


"I found the Mock CASC Exam really useful - it helped reduce my anxiety and have an idea of what to expect. I passed the same number of stations as in the real exam, so I think it is a good reflection of the real thing. I would recommend the Mock to everyone." Sheffield 2016

Oxfordpsych CASC online mock learning outcomes:

By the end of the online Mock CASC Exam, you will be able to:

1. Reflect on how you performed across 16 stations, looking for patterns of areas to improve from the written feedback.

2. Consider the effect of sustained concentration on you own focus and attention, and your ability to adapt to the requirements of each station, including the ability to remain resilient when things don't go as expected.

3. Identify areas for further revision, based on the content of scenarios and feedback received.

4. Appraise how much anxiety influences your own performance and to reflect on positive strategies to minimise any negative effect.

5. Compare the CASC experience to that of clinical practice, and focus on demonstrating the skills and competencies of the everyday work environment in a confident and senior manner.
