SJT Online Crash Course

Secure the Foundation Programme of your choice – The UK’s most effective and affordable SJT course


The Situational Judgement Test is an exam sat by all final-year UK medical students and plays a major part in the selection process for entry to Foundation Programme.

The importance of this exam cannot be overstated and from personal experience we have found that adequate support and guidance is often lacking.

We developed our own methods to tackle the SJT and want to share this to help students achieve their full potential.

Our course has been designed by a team of Doctors who have scored highly in their SJT examination and tested with up-to-date guidance, providing valuable and clear insight.

The course will be delivered by a Doctor who has experience with teaching SJTs and scored 47.6/50 in their examination.

We wish to share our passion for teaching and help alleviate stress surrounding preparation for the SJT, a crucial exam which decides your future.

“Great speaker. Succint and relevant information- more so than Emedica course. Everything was explained well and clearly. Good that you had a focused section on the new question types, particularly helpful that you went through some of the answers that you as a group felt were right, given that the new questions we had been provided with had no explanations attached’

Ellie Trip – Final Year Medical Student

The information was concise, excellently delivered and I really enjoyed this course. I cannot praise the speaker enough. Prompt start and stuck to timing throughout. My SJT exam is close and this was invaluable.
