Revision aids for the situational judgment test
Some of the most popular resources you can use to prepare for the SJT are reviewed
- By: Joe Dixon
All final year medical students take the situational judgment test (SJT) as part of their application to the foundation programme. The official line from the UK Foundation Programme Office is that you don’t need to revise for the SJT, but half of your application rests on your score so many medical students do not leave taking the test to chance.
Since the introduction of the SJT in 2013, the marketplace has been flooded with resources claiming to help students do well. Having recently taken the SJT and gained a training place at the deanery of my choice, I know the importance of preparing for the exam. You need to know what questions to expect and how to answer them. With the help of some of my fellow final year students, I have reviewed the pros and cons of some of the most popular revision aids.
