This section of the website contains practice short answer questions broken down by sub-specialty from the Final FRCA syllabus intended as a resource for the written paper.

They are a combination of past paper question stems and newly created stems based on the syllabus or on recent guidelines/publications.

They are more detailed than questions likely to be encountered in the written paper, and so if completed, answer unseen, would be expected to take longer than the 15 minutes allocated per question in the SAQ paper of the Final FRCA. They are a revision exercise as well as practice SAQs.

The original components of the questions themselves have been created by Dr C Shevlin and registrar tutors participating in the Final FRCA course.

The model answers have been provided by ST3s/4s participating in the course 2012-2017 as part of a FRCA writers' club exercise.

It is intended to be an ongoing developing resource with participants answering a different question on a fortnightly to three-weekly basis.

Thanks to all who are helping out. Answers are credited to their relevant author.
