PasTest Launches New Online Interactive Examination Resource for Doctors

Market leader in postgraduate medical course material takes expertise online

PasTest, the UK market leader in professional medical revision and study aids, has launched PasTest Online, a comprehensive online and examination resource for doctors.

Launched initially for MRCP (Membership to the Royal College of Physicians) Part 1, PasTest Online is the latest addition to the PasTest revision range which also includes books and courses - no other competitor offers the same degree of expertise in all of these areas. PasTest has been researching and developing PasTest Online since 2002.

A subscription to PasTest Online gives access to PasTest’s comprehensive question database including over 1000 questions not found in any PasTest courses or books.

“With PasTest Online, studying for postgraduate qualifications can be fitted in whenever and wherever students have Internet access,” said Philip Curzon, chief executive of PasTest. “Our reputation rests on listening to the needs of our customers and adapting our products accordingly.”

The ‘Best of Five’ multiple choice questions offered by PasTest Online have been carefully reviewed by PasTest to accurately reflect the examination syllabus in style, choice and weighting of topics. Initially focused on MRCP Part 1, PasTest Online will be expanded to cover fully interactive question banks and aids for other key examinations.

“PasTest Online provides doctors with a comprehensive online and interactive examination resource which when combined with our courses and books delivers the most effective preparation for MRCP 1,” added Curzon.

PasTest Online is the most time-effective method of revision available for medical staff for key postgraduate qualifications. It has been designed to allow students to revise at their own pace, enabling candidates to choose from a variety of delivery methods suitable for different stages of the revision process. With the “My Performance”
option, PasTest Online also offers students detailed feedback on performance with personalised statistical data broken down by subject area.

PasTest Online uses the same in-depth knowledge and resources as PasTest’s offline resources and is fully compatible with PasTest’s range of courses and books.

How PasTest Online works
Examination candidates can subscribe to PasTest Online on a monthly basis - access costs £30 for one month, £50 for two months, £60 for three months and £70 for four months. Once candidates have subscribed, they are issued with a unique username and password, which they then use to log in, use the revision aids and access their personalised, updated progress reports.
