How To Score 100% In The GP Stage 3 Selection Centre
Advice & Insight From GP Stage 3 Specialists
I have compiled 5 Key GP Stage 3 Selection Centre Tips that helped me to score 52/52 (100%) in the GP Stage 3 Selection Centre.
Prepare Your Preparation
The very best candidates start preparing for GP Stage 3 before Selection Centre invitations are dispatched. I would recommend taking a one week break after completing GP Stage 2 (MSRA), and thereafter commence GP Stage 3 Preparation.
The ‘Candidate Context’ is almost always the same for all Simulation Exercises, with the exception of the consultation setting and type (Patient/Relative/Healthcare Professional). Focus on this key information only and save yourself thirty seconds/Simulation Exercise
Written Prioritisation Exercises Reflection
The reflection questions are almost identical every year. As such, I would recommend preparing pre-rehearsed reflection answers which can be applied to the specific scenarios (or if you attend a GP Stage 3 Selection Centre Course, these will be provided to you).

Know What You're Being Assessed On
Every Mark Matters
The GP Stage 3 Selection Centre can be a challenging day, especially if you like to dwell on previous exercises and scenarios. With four distinct exercises (3 Simulation Exercises and 1 Written Prioritisation Exercise), you essentially have four opportunities to impress. Each examiner will have no idea about your performance on previous stations, so make the most of the (comparatively generous) 5 minutes between each Simulation Exercise to solely focus on the next Simulation Exercise, and put any thoughts regarding the last exercise to one side. Outside each Simulation Exercise, it will make clear who the consultation is with allowing you to adjust your mindset and consultation style accordingly.
