Student Testimonials

Our Mock OSCE Course was a success, hear it straight from the students!!

This is what the students say…..

Hanifah Akhtar, 2018:

‘I took part in the stage 2 and osce courses. Both have me a brilliant insight on what to expect, especially the osce course. They were definitely worth it.

I particularly liked the detailed handouts with lots of useful information about what can be asked for the competencies. They covered a wide scope to ensure we are prepared for assessors questions.

The course instructors are very helpful and give all the information we need.

I’m glad I signed up to the courses- they were vital to the success of my pre registration year. I managed to paas first time in January 2018’

‘Optom academy is an excellent team of tutors who can help you pass your OSCEs. I found them very useful in guiding me on my weaknesses in order for me to successfully get through OSCEs. From group sessions to one to one sessions, definitely a course I recommend. You also get good feedback and a good sense of what the real OSCES will feel like.’

Mariam Bhojani BSc MCOptom 2017

‘Optom Academy really helped me get through my pre-reg in 2016/2017. The lecture notes were extremely useful for all the pre reg visits for stage 1 and I still use them today as a qualified optometrist as useful go to revision.
Shamina also helped me throughout my stage 2 by observing my sight test, CL fitting and aftercare and critiquing at the end what I can do better to improve. She gave me the confidence to pass and get September OSCE’s which I was aiming for.

The Optom Academy OSCE course was also a great help. It was set up like a real life OSCE examination with different stations in different rooms with examiners. This was the best help for me as it made me realise what areas I struggled on and what areas I needed to improve on for my final OSCE examination. Without going to a mock OSCE like Optom Academy’s I wouldn’t have passed first time. So thank you! :)’

Optom Academy Mock Osce course was one of the most accurate representations of the real College of Optometrist Osce’s. It was well structured and receiving one to one feedback from supervisors / examiners proved to be incredibly useful in helping me prepare for my exams.
I would definitely recommend it to all pre-registration optometrists!’
