Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is SPMM?

SPMM stands for Success in Psychiatric Membership Masterclass. SPMM Course has a long history of providing focused exam revision courses for the British MRCPsych exams through weekend lecture courses. When the Royal College of Psychiatrists introduced a completely new exam format in 2008, SPMM launched an online revision module that closely matched the new exams. This resource was an immediate success, providing a trustworthy study material and meticulously compiled Q-Bank for the trainees. Today, we are proud to say that there are very few trainees in the UK who dare to appear for the MRCPsych exams without using our revision materials!

  • Why should I choose SPMM for FRANZCP?
The modified curriculum for FRANZCP for 2012 Fellowship is very exhaustive and stipulates a restricted time period for clearing the required exams before further progression. At present there is scarcely any revision material for the 2014 written exam.  At SPMM we believe that if you practice with a fresh, purpose-written, syllabus-matched Question Bank with well-referenced answers,  you will not go wrong - no matter what question is thrown at you in the exam. To enable this we have made the course tailored for the needs of 2012 Fellowship candidates, with no assumption of any previous revision. Unlike other courses, we do not wander away from your target of FRANZCP exams - not even for a minute! 
Further, our courses are always priced at a very nominal rate: you don't have to pay us a lot for your own hard-work!
