Alhamdulillah, I have come to the end of my MRCPsych journey after passing the CASC exam in Hong Kong in October 2019.
Since then, I have received quite a lot of personal messages via Facebook messenger and IG messenger asking about my journey throughout my Part A, Part B and CASC attempts. People have asked about what I did to pass my exams and if there are any tips I could share to pass Part A, Part B and CASC.
Insya Allah, in this section of my blog, I will try to write in greater details regarding my preparation for passing my exams. These are not tips, by any stretch of the imagination. In my opinion, there are no hard and fast rules regarding the best way to prepare for each part of the exams. It depends on a lot of factors; your personality, your style of studying, your other commitments etc etc. I will only be telling you what I did…. but I do not guarantee that it will work for everyone. Our lifestyles and commitments and preferences differ. If you have more time, you can do more than I did. If you have less time, you might have no choice but to do less. Trust that Allah will help you when you do the best that you can and utilize all the resources that you have at your disposal that Allah has blessed you with. Allah rewards us for our efforts, regardless. He knows our limitation and our weaknesses. What matters is to put in your best effort so that you will qualify for Allah’s help.
It is not just the outcome that matters… it is the journey that makes you the wiser person that you are now compared to how you were when you first began.
Throughout the years, I had written some blog posts that are related to the exams. I will post the links down below. And you can check those out first. Later on, I will create more pages under this MRCPsych Journey page to write about Part A, Part B and CASC in greater details. All the best in your journey, guys. May Allah grant us success not just in this life, but also in the hereafter.
Much love and may Allah bless all of us.
