What's in it for me? What are the benefits of taking a Mock OSCE?

Mock-OSCE.com has been created to help you improve your clinical communication skills, your self confidence and to prepare and enhance your ability to do well in clinical communications situations ahead of university OSCEs.

By completing a Mock OSCE, you will go through the remote OSCE process, understanding and experiencing ‘LIVE’ what it’s like to take part in a remote OSCE while also being assessed on your  performance. 

A scorecard and personalised feedback sheet will be provided after the Mock OSCE, so you are made aware of the areas you might need to improve and what went very well before the real thing.

A so called ‘station score’ and ‘competency score’ radar plot will be provided to inform you where you compare to other Mock OSCE participants (see below).
