I am very happy to share this testimonial after I have passed the MRCOG ; It took me quite a while to start writing it, as my journey with BeMRCOG started off in 2020, and I was afraid not to do Asma enough justice..
I came across the BeMRCOG website by chance, thankfully, as I’m an IMG and I was looking for a renowned online preparation course for the MRCOG ; The design of the website and the various courses and workshops offered attracted me instantly and I subscribed without any hesitation.
My first experience was the Group practice course back in 2020 (July-August), that introduced me to the whole concept of the exam ; Actually the advice, tips, modules’ flashcards, methodology and literally the philosophy of this new approach of teaching of Asma helped understand the mindset of the modules, therefore allowing to perform well in any station in the exam even if the topic was little or not known at all. This in itself is a great achievement of this course. And not to forget the lovely moderators Ummarah and Meeta whose feedbacks helped in improving the way I dealt with the scenarios, and avoiding pitfalls.
Afterwards, I enrolled in the workshops, starting with the Communication skills Workshop, then the Information gathering workshop, Empathy workshop, Clinical Governance workshop, Interpersonal Skills Workshop, and later on the master course. These all shaped my approach not only to the exam, but sincerely to my day to day practice, which reflected in the positive feedbacks I received from my own patients. And this is something unique to BeMRCOG and Asma and for which I am deeply grateful.
I also subscribed to the 1 to 1 sessions with Asma, which I must confess were a little stressful especially at the beginning, but I realized that they offer an unbeatable platform for practising, with valuable personalized feedbacks. Moreover, Asma is also a talented actress since she moves from a simulated patient to another, putting you in the real setting of the exam. In fact, on D-day, you get the feeling of déjà vu, so you feel comfortable while performing and perform even better.
Finally, my take home message and advice is to join the beMRCOG family, as I believe it is the royal path to the MRCOG.
Wishing you all the best of luck, and thank you beMRCOG !
Dr Sharon Davidesko (Master course, crash revision course and audiobook)
I completed all three courses in 2.5 months in preparation for my MRCOG part 3 and can confirm that they really hit the mark.
I passed on my first try and would highly recommend using these courses as a main source for preparing for this exam.
The interaction with other candidates, moderators and Asma made studying more interesting and kept my motivation at its highest.
The course material provided a comprehensive revision of the syllabus including UK systems and the module mindsets prepared me even for unrevised topics that appeared in my exam stations.
I am so glad to announce this immensely exciting news that with the grace of Allah, I have passed MRCOG on my second attempt with high scores. I am proud of being guided by Dr. Asma in my journey. Initially, when I cleared part-two I assumed that all courses were similar then, I engaged in an empathy workshop and mock, which helped me develop my ability to reflect on myself. I then made the decision to join the Be-MRCOG board. Dr. Asma guided me to read the scenario outside the cubicle and understand the module mindset. The module mindset, self reflection, feedback, and chronology of events are the core aspects of Be-MRCOG, to name a few highlights. Finally, I'm sure that enrolling in Dr. Asma's courses will result in success.
Dr Syeda Khanda Tahseen (St3 recorded workshop, live webinar, Audiobook, 1-1 practice sessions, )
If i start my testimonial by saying this that this is THE BEST course that prepares you extremely well for such a high stake Obs& Gynae ST3 interview it wouldn't be wrong. This course helped me to achieve Rank 7 and getting offer from my 1st preference. 1-1 practice sessions were extremely helpful. I want to massively thank all the great people involved in this course but a big round of applause for Dr Naqi who is the course leader and is extremely experienced in conducting interview courses. I wish you all the very best for the future endeavors.
PS if you are struggling to get in to training or if you don't know how and where to start, trust me , this course is your best bet!
I am extremely happy to write this testimonial for Dr.Asma and her team. Preparing for MRCOG part 3 needs smart preparation with proper orientation that would be possible by understanding of the UK systems and patients journey. I needed a coaching that actually teaches what the exam is about and how to tackle each station instead of just memorizing the templates. After thorough research, I found out about Dr Asma at the last minute when there was a very short time of 1 month before the exam. I am forever grateful to Dr Asma, who teaches us the approach to each module as well as each domain. She is strictly disciplined and also pushes us to practice what we are learning, and that is needed. I also took up the empathy workshop where the approach to the patient is taught, which helps you for a lifetime. I should have joined her a bit early in my preparation . Dr. Asma individualizes your learning needs and is always ready to offer further support. Thank you team BeMRCOG.
I attended the GPC, Ecourse and subscribed for the Audiobook. Undoubtedly both were excellent and helped me to improve my confidence and communication skills. E-cource enhanced my understanding of the module mindset. GPC helped me improve my practice for exam tasks. Audiobook was fantastic because I had the opportunity to listen to Asma discussing very important tasks related to exam in a domain-based manner. Asma is a great mentor and because of her support and guidance, I was able to succeed in my MRCOG 3 exam in February 2023. I am thankful to Asma and her team for leading me to the road of success. I strongly recommend her courses especially for non UK based candidates who are relatively unaware of the UK system.
Dr Bandula kumara Brahmana mudiyanselage (Master course + Crash Revision Group, Empathy Training Workshop, Communication skills course, Prioritisation Audiobook, One-to-One session, 2 days Private Mock circuit 2022)
Hurrah!!! I am immensely proud of my exceptional achievement… I am qualified to be a member of Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, one of the prestigious associations in the world.
I subscribed to Master course & Crash Revision Group, Empathy Training Workshop, Communication skills course, Prioritisation Audiobook, One-to-One session and 2 Days Private Mock circuit(2022), and they are highly recommended to anyone who wants to face MRCOG part 3 with great confidence and invariably very high success rate.
As a Non-UK based trainee, I am pretty sure my communication skills were not up to the standard before I went through two most important courses :Empathy Training Workshop and Communication skills course which upgraded my communication skills to reach the expected standards in MRCOG part 3 exam. Honestly speaking, it changed even my routine clinical practice which made my life easy specially in handling difficult patients and patients with hidden agendas.
Thank you Dr Asma for identifying my weaknesses and correctly modifying the Private One-to-One sessions to correct those weaknesses only within few days. After the One-to-One sessions and reading the Master course contents I feel I mastered at least 50% of the consultation model which helped me to successfully navigate the initial 1-2 minutes of the discussion, which I consider as the GOLDEN 1-2 MINUTES!. I believe that any candidate who can correctly navigate through this GOLDEN 1-2 MINUTES of discussion, he/ she will manage the rest the discussion without any issue for sure.
I recommend master course for all Non-UK based trainees as it gives a very clear understanding of UK system which will help to address necessary points in the exam specially in applied clinical knowledge and patient safety domains.
I challenge that nobody can find any course anywhere which is very comprehensive than the BeMRCOG Prioritisation audiobook. The labour ward prioritisation and Gynaecology theatre cases discussion in this audio book gave me the full understanding of how to answer those questions correctly ( I completed only 7 rooms out of 10 in labour ward prioritisation in the exam, but amazingly I survived as I followed the same technique discussed in this audiobook).
Finally, if anyone wants to identify their weaknesses and brush up the exam performance skills in a short period of time , the highly recommended platform is Crash Revision Group.
Thank you again Dr Asma and the BeMRCOG team , giving me and my colleagues very comprehensive feedbacks and even making very encouraging 14 modules assessment chart for all domains assessed in the part 3 MRCOG exam. That really improved my confidence and also encouraged me to keep that confidence until I complete the proper examination successfully.
Dr Shana Marie Buttigieg (Smart Intensive Course (2 month group practise) for MRCOG Part 3 and the MBR course )
I followed the Smart Intensive Course (2 month group practise) for MRCOG Part 3 as well as the MBR course as part of my preparation for the EBCOG Part 2 exam.
I was highly recommended this course by my fellow colleagues who have previously followed similar BeMRCOG courses and who have all managed to pass this exam on the first attempt. I am very happy to have taken their advice and did this course with Dr Asma as I have also managed to pass this exam on my first attempt. BeMRCOG not only helped me to prepare very well for the exam, but I believe that through these courses I have acquired precious communication skills that will help me communicate better with my patients and colleagues and which I will surely use in my personal relationships. The group tasks and live sessions ensure targeted learning and the one to one sessions are exceptional for focused and individually tailored learning and feedback. I felt well prepared for the exam and I was able to sit the exam with confidence.
I must thank Dr Asma for helping me to be successful in this exam. She truly cares about the student and she makes sure that the individual gets the best out of her courses.
I highly recommend Dr Asma and the BeMRCOG team for a high quality, professional and exceptional learning experience!
Dr Sadia Aziz (Information Gathering workshop, Empathy Workshop, Communication skills Workshop, Clinical Governance workshop, SIC Course, one to one session , 2 DAYS Mock circuit ,MBR Series)
Its an honour for me to write testimonial on page of BeMRCOG. This moment is a dream come true. I remember reading testimonials of successful candidates and thinking would I ever be able to write one . Loads of Thanks to Asma and her team for converting this dream to reality for me.The great quality of Asma is that she totally transforms you in a different person who is not only ready to face exam , but look at life from different and positive perspective.
Now coming towards my journey with BeMRCOG , I took Empathy workshop, communication skills workshop, information gathering workshop , clinical Governance workshop, Smart Inten-sive course, one to one session , Two day mock circuit ,MBR series.I trusted BeMRCOG and Asma to guide me to the path of success.Each day with BeMRCOG was truly worth it , I learnt what was needed , practiced and followed all instructions.There were moments of despair , frustration and lack of confidence in myself and my preparation but I always remembered Asma’s motivational words and kept practicing .She puts immense effort in making sure that her students become successful.Without her it would not have been possible for me.I learnt from every course I took.These course not only teach you to pass exam but also change you into true professional who is honest, resilient ,efficient leader ,vigilant team member and knows how to communicates.It changes your life .I recommend BeMRCOG to everyone ,it’s a life changing experience.
Dr Susan Thabet (Group practice, communication skills, empathy, information gathering workshops, audiobook, mock circuit, one to one sessions and MBR )
Bemrcog was the light at the end of the tunnel for me. I had this idea of no one can pass part 3 without UK experience; but with the guidance and experience that I have had with this platform my beliefs have changed. I totally relied on the materials and courses of BeMRCOG during my preparation mainly the audiobook which is a true masterpiece, added to that the MBR, mock circuit and one to one sessions. What is unique about Asma’s courses and teaching is that it improves the way of thinking and not to give information to memorise and reproduce, it worked by helping me build a module mindset and a smart way to think and solve problems that might be encountered during the exam setting or in my daily practice. Empathy and meeting the patient concerns are a very important aspects of the consultation that might be forgotten or ignored and if we practiced them in the right way it can definitely take the consultation into the next level, and this is what I have learnt with BeMRCOG and applied into my daily practice. The module mindset that you’re going to build with BeMRCOG is unique and will not be found elsewhere. I passed my part 3 on first attempt with no UK work experience and I’m proud to be a part of BeMRCG family.
Dr Saima gull Bashir (E course, group practice, clinical governance workshop,empathy workshop,information gathering workshop, Audio book, one to one sessions.)
It has been immense pleasure to write down this testimonial after passing MRCOG part 3. This couldnt be possible without continous support and guidance from Asma. E course helps me in understanding modules mind set and domains , in group practise more clarity of how to apply module mindset in practise and deep understanding of domains. Audio book is mind blowing , because Asma explained very important topics from exam point of view in details alongwith how system works in NHS. So that being a candidate with no work experience in UK can easily understands NHS referral system and UK laws . I also attended empathy workshop, information gathering workshop that improves my communication with patient and information gathering domain. In Clinical governance workshop , practical knowledge of Risk management , audit , research and quality improvement very helpfull in understanding these topics by actually practising them in workshop. Finally one to one sessions after all preparation ,in which Asma keenly observe my performance and point out mistakes to brush up more. I conclude by saying some words regarding Asma. She is a great mentor indeed who help her students personally to get through this exam .I am thankfull to Asma for helping me self lessly . I strongly recommend Asma courses especially non UK based candidates .
Thank you Ms Naqi!
Hello everyone, I’m Suyasha Vyas, I was lucky enough to get the first rank in ST 3 obstetrics and gynaecology training entrance exam this year.
I attended the interview preparation course as well as the one on one practice course organised by BeMRCOG. It helped me feel well prepared for the interview and my one on one session was really instrumental in fine tuning my technique and improving my attitude and confidence. I did not feel spoon fed and my answers did not end up being stilted because the course emphasises very rightly on developing the right approach.
I believe all of us at this stage have similar level of capability, it is communication and how we present ourselves that makes a huge difference and can help us make it through.
Would definitely recommend these courses by BeMRCOG, feel very grateful for the effort put in by the team.
Dr Monis Gajdhar (Part3 mrcog workshop and immersion course audiobook)
I am delighted to say that I cleared Part 3 MRCOG in first attempt .I highly recommend immersion course audiobook and the workshop (mock circuit ) conducted by Dr Asma Naqi . It helps in clearing many concepts and the way to approach this exam .
Dr Razan abukhaizaran (E-course, Smart Intensive course , Empathy Workshop, Information Gathering Workshop, Communication Skills Workshop, Clinical Governance Workshop, 1-1 sessions, Mock Circuit, Privet Mock Circuit, Immersion Audiobook)
I am Razan Abukhaizaran from Palestine. I did all my clinical training in obstetrics and gynecology in Palestine. I have never done any clinical work in the UK. To the best of my knowledge, no one from Palestine has applied for this exam in the last years with no UK practice. Therefore, this exam was a real challenge to me. Due to the hard work and BeMRCOG as well as dedication of Asma, I was able to pass my first attempt with a score of 82%. In this letter, I will talk about my experience and how I prepared for this exam. I heard a lot about BeMRCOG and decided to give it a try. After my first meeting with Asma, I decided that I would commit myself to this group and follow her advice. So, I signed up for the ultimate package courses and started attending various courses such as communication, information gathering, and empathy workshops. After that, I realized that an important key to passing this exam was to follow the consultation model, ICE, and listening to patients. This was so true that through my real exam in one of the stations one of the patients thanked me for being understanding and emphatic. An important remaining part for me was to know more about the NHS system in the UK, which was beautifully illustrated in the audiobook. We call it the masterpiece. All the topics of previous recalls expected questions and reactions from role players in different scenarios were also nicely explained. My final preparation was to practice what I have learned. I was able to do that by joining the Smart intensive course, one-to-one sessions, and finally attending the mock circuit workshop. I am glad to say that through our group practice I met these wonderful people from all over the world who were also helpful and supportive during this stressful period. Finally, I would say I feel so lucky I knew about BeMRCOG. I believe that, through your group, Palestine will be soon full of MRCOG people.
Dr Sapna Vinit Amin (Be MRCOG part 3 GPC, one to one, Communication skills, Information gathering, Mock test, Audio book)
B MRCOG BKM MRCOG!! Hi Friends, I finally cleared my MRCOG recently( May 2022) The first and foremost course I joined in building my castle of MRCOG was Be MRCOG Foundation should be strong enough to sustain the extremes and longevity and success of any structure Asma's Be MRCOG gave me this base Around this root, MRCOG dream started growing with stem, leaves, flowers and ultimately I got the FRUIT Be MRCOG course is theme based, overseas candidates nightmare converted to sweet dreams and module mindset approach makes us reach and achieve this the most toughest goal and sees to that we sail smoothly Communication skills, history taking workshops r like garden and terrace of this castle Audiobook is an altogether awesome something else!! It's a tree house 🏡 Cherry on top of a cake Mentors Asma, Ummarah, Meeta, Tasneem polished us from raw stones to this precious gem we r having on our crowns today My study buddies stood at my sides all the time like supporting pillars at my smooth and rough seasons I am extremely greatful to Asma for carving a path for me in this dream come true journey My sincere heartfelt thanks to Asma and team They leave no stone unturned and lead us through almost holding our hands, when we stagger or fall I have no doubt in that, who joins this course will achieve their dreams, by not just becoming MRCOG members, but also will be the finest human beings with empathy and perceptive of the others mind and emotions I highly recommend to join Be MRCOG course and live ur dream of castle MRCOG, happily ever after
I must say BeMRCOG has been a life changing experience for me. It has opened my eyes, removed the various mental blind spots that I didn't even know existed and has metamorphed me into a butterfly ready to fly.
The way they focus on domain wise Knowledge, Skills, attitude and situational awareness is really amazing. Group discussions helped me to develop a strong module based mindset and when the mindset is strong then no matter what cases are thrown at you, with a decent background knowledge you will be able to tick all the domains and excel.
Audiobook- What to say about it. It's simply a masterpiece of our dear Asma. It's a treasure box where the mentor herself is performing all the hot cases.
The top striking feature is that in each case before performing, Asma teaches us how to decode the scenarios, know what is being expected from us and how to make best use of those 2 minutes which if done right everything else will fall into place in the coming 10 minutes.
The other striking feature is that we get a crystal clear understanding of the UK systems and how things work here.
Finally the communication techniques, through all the cases she has covered deeply how to show sensitivity, empathy, address ideas,concerns, expectations, pick up hidden agendas, focussed information gathering and do information sharing tailored according to the patients needs. Module mindsets helps you to safely tick all the points in various domains required to pass.
We do have knowledge but how to apply it depending on the patient's requirements and keeping pt safety in mind is the game really and BeMRCOG helps you to master this.
Thank you Dear Asma and my BeMRCOG family for helping me to create a strong foundation base for myself and for earning the prestigious title "MRCOG"🙏🙏.
I am addicted to all your workshops and hope to learn a lot from you in the future as well. As I said earlier it is an addiction that you can not get over with 😍.
Dr Monis Gajdhar (part3 mrcog workshop and immersion course audiobook)
I am delighted to say that I cleared Part 3 MRCOG in first attempt .I highly recommend immersion course audiobook and the workshop (mock circuit ) conducted by Dr Asma Naqi .
It helps in clearing many concepts and the way to approach this exam .
Dr Sadaf Khalil (E- course ,group practice Mrcog part 3)
Thank you so much Asma.
Bemrcog courses and workshops not only helped me in passing exam but developed some positive traits in my personality which will keep helping me for future endeavors and overcoming challenges of life.
Most part of my success owes to BeMRCOG.
It was 3 days before the interview when I came across an advertisement on FB by BeMRCOG. This was my one and only chance and I wanted to leave no stone unturned, so I went ahead and subscribed to the ST3 interview workshop, as well as theirone-on-one training session.
I was well prepared for the interview, but the competition (1 in 10 to 1 in 17) is immense, hence there is no room for error.
This course helped me structure my answers and I learnt which parts of the answer I should focus on, in the limited time available. The one-on-one session had a more personal approach and with the feedback provided I improved upon certain areas for the final push. It mirrored the actual interview, and this helpedcalm my nerves down for the real day.
The course is extremely well run. Ms. Naqi’s approach was clear and concise. I’m grateful for facilitating me secure the 9th position.
P.S. - This course does not provide ready-madematerial, but it brings the best out of oneself. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone preparing for the ST3 Obstetrics Gynecology interviews.
Dr Huda Saleem Abbasi (E-course, Smart Intensive course , Group Practice, Empathy Workshop, Communication Skills Workshop, 1-1 sessions, Mock Circuit, Immersion Audiobook)
I am quite excited to be the one writing this testimonial. i still remember when after passing my Part 2 exam in 2020, i came across the BeMRCOG webpage and i was going through the testimonials and envying all those who have passed this exam. Luckily today i am doing the same.
The biggest hesitation that i had before giving this exam was no work experience in UK and that used to make me think that it would be very difficult to pass without any working in UK. This fear was addressed after i joined the BeMRCOG. It is such a structured exam preparation method that it made me very confident in exam. This Feb 2022 exam was my first experience. i have not taken any courses other than BeMRCOG. I cannot express hoe lucky i am to get the guidance of Asma Naqi. In my experience very few people or courses can provide you the approach to prepare for an exam which is tailored to your needs. However, Asma and her team personally interview you and her 1/1 sessions help you understand what are your actual weakpoints and where work needs to be done.
I can not praise enough the role Asma and BeMRCOG has played in my success. i would like to take this opportunity to talk a little bit about my top recommendation out of all the courses that i have done in BeMRCOG and their benefits in my opinion:
its actually the base which gives structure to your consultations
2) Group practice:
its very important to have this practice as i can say that it makes your right reflexes during the exam. Every performance will get feedbacks which will exponentially increase your learning. Not to forget the non technical skills that one can learn in this.
3) 1 to 1 session:
one of my fav, they wil help you very easily imagine yourself in exam and very essential for the preparation.
4) Communication skills workshop and Empathy workshop:
trust me in this one you will never know its significance unless you take these. They are going to change the outlook of this exam for you.
5) Mock circuit:
complete simulation of the real exam.
6) Audiobook immersion course:
now this one for me is the GAME CHANGER and SHOW STOPPER. This is my fav one. its immensely helpful and helps you deal with any possible siuation that can arise during the exam in any scenario or consultation.
To sum it up, i am extremely thankful fro all the efforts of the mentor and her team for making this possible for me to get through this exam. She has been a constant source of guidance and motivation for me. I am very glad to to be the member of this beautiful family.
I would recommend everyone who wants to be a MRCOG to get these courses and you will not regret it.
Dr Dr Shazia Durrani (Group practice with E course)
The journey to get MRCOG is long, hectic as well as unclear being overseas Candidates . To make it smooth and understandable you need support in form of a dedicated mentor and study buddy in addition to continue family support . I am grateful to find Dr Asma at BeMRCOG at the beginning of my preparation period , who taught me Module mind set , Communication style and how to practice empathy and these are the basic pillars of Exam format , moreover I learned few basic fundamentals of good humanity and professionalism , I believe and am extremely thankful to her for my success of clearing this challenging part 3 in first attempt .She is properly trained from UK and well experienced Mentor no doubt , I am proud of her knowledge and capabilities and can strongly recommend to those who are starting from scratch to appear in part 3 Exams , you will get the concept and basic theme of Exam which no one can guide you . Bundle of thanks to dear Asma for being main part of my Success Story . I wish her best of luck for her future endeavors.
Dr Banurekha Natarajan (Group practice with e course, Information gathering workshop)
I am happy to write to share my experience with beMRCOG ,that helped me to pass the part 3 MRCOG in the first attempt. The group practice was intense and the feedbacks fron moderators Ummarah and Fathima were focussed, domain wise and mapped to the exam. The standards set by Asma are essential not only for the exam but for any student in a professional course like medicine. I have sometimes felt that this is how medicine has to be taught and learnt. Kudos to Asma and her team
Dr humera riz (Group practice with E course Empathy training workshop, information gatgering workshop, smart intensive course and mock circuit)
I feel honoured to give testimonial on Bemarcog page. I have passed my mrcog3 of Feb2022 in first attempt Alhamdulillah. The credit after Allah Almighty and my family goes to Dr Asma and her amazing team of co moderators. My journey with Bemrcog Started in Feb 2020 when one of my good friend Dr Amarah recommended me to join the group practice course for part 3. After that i became a part of Bemrcog family. Initially i was clueless about part 3 but Asma awesome mentoring style gave me new perspective. It was an eye opener for me especially the empathy workshop. The feedbacks of Dr Asma, umarah and Fatima were always up to the mark and helped me to improve myself. The module mindset is very important to understand which Asma focuses a lot. It broadened my vision. The Audio book is phenomenal. The concise and crisp concepts make preparation for exam very systematic and clear. Its a blessing especially for international medical graduates. I will recommend my friends and colleagues to join the Bemrcog Family. Asma is an amazing mentor who always works with her utmost dedication.
Thank you Asma, Umarah and Fatima for the guidance and feedback, which helped me to fulfill my dream
All the best.
Dr MOMINA ZULFEEN (E course, smart intensive course and one-one sessions)
It gives me immense joy to pen this testimonial for Dr.Asma and her team.
Preparing for Mrcog part 3 is no easy task and needs smart preparation unlike other exams. I had enrolled on another platform but was very disappointed with my preparations and needed a coaching that actually teaches what the exam is about and how to tackle each station, instead of just memorizing the templates. After thorough research and listening to feedbacks, I found this platform, as I needed to clear on my first attempt. I am forever grateful to Dr Asma, who dragged me out of the deep misconceptions i dwelled in. She is strict and thats needed. Asma has a special technique of learning which will let you perform any task irrespective of the topic. That confidence is needed for the finals. The group practice is fun as well, made great friends. Support is constant and the preparation wont seem as stressful. I felt this is important especially if you are a busy person. I also took up the one to one courses, found them extremely beneficial, as Asma indiviualizes your learning needs and sets you right on track. I am short of words to show my true appreciation, i hope this testimonial benefits those seeking for quality education. Trust me, all skills we learn here are for life. Thank you team BeMRCOG.
Dr uzma Batool (Mrcog 3 GPC,AUDIOBOOK,1-1SESSIONS)
It is a moment of immense pleasure for me to write testimonial on this page .I have found all the courses extremely valuable to understand the requirements for the part3 exam .Being an overseas candidate and never having any uk residency experience ,Asma's course actually gave me a thorough insight .
Audiobook is a masterpiece which gives a precise and comprehensive evidence based knowledge for maximum exam based scenarios and of course one to one one sessions with Asma naqi helped me alot to improve communication skills .Asma is an exceptional teacher and a great mentor to support throughout your journey .I personally recommend highly for all the students and in particular overseas students to take BEMRCOG preparatory courses .Thank you Asma and Bemrcog team for everything you have done for me to achieve my goal of getting MRCOG degree with a good score (85%).
Am so happy to write this testimonial for Asma.I passed part 3 in the very first time.I am a non uk candidate, and I never thought I would win so fast.Asma amazingly used many teaching tools to make me learn fast , and effectively.Her focus on " module mindset " for every station was the secret formula for success.Asma is a gifted teacher.She can change an average student into the smartest candidate at the exam event.
Dr Darrell Fernando (SIC, Mock Circuit Workshop, 1-1 Sessions, Full Audiobook, Empathy Workshop)
Today marks a historical date for me. I passed my MRCOG Part 3. Coming from Indonesia, I am the first candidate to sit for MRCOG Part 3 without any previous work experience or exposure to the NHS in UK. I stumbled upon beMRCOG when I was looking for a course for the exam. AND IT WAS THE BEST DECISION EVER. Asma's guidance, courses, and mentoring has helped me a lot. The Audiobook is the final cherry on top, it is a masterpiece. I had only 2.5 months of preparation for Part 3, and I passed my Part 2 in 2019. It was a huge gap, but Asma had complete faith in me and kept motivating me.
If you are looking for a course for MRCOG, look no further. You don't need other courses as well. Just follow Asma's guidance, what she recommends you, and you are in excellent hands. The bonus is having a new family of friends that are also going through the same process as you.
I am really happy - and Asma can also be proud that she helped the first MRCOG graduate from Indonesia that has never been to the UK.
Dr misbah jabeen (GPC,workshop,one to one session,information gathering session)
AlhamduliAllah I am feeling extremely delighted to write this testimonial today and I feel proud to say that I didn’t go for any online long term course other than BeMRCOG.With continuous support and supervision of Dr Asma ,I achieved it.BeMrcog make sure you achieve your goal.Dr Asma’s way of teaching absolutely matches what is required to pass this exam.Only requirement is full dedication and sticking on what is being tought.This course is unique of teaching module mindset and fully making you aware of what is expected of this exam.Dr Asma put so much of her effort to make sure we understand basic concepts.No one else does that at this stage of our life.Even my husband sometimes listening of how she is teaching from far has appreciated that.I am extremely thankful to Dr Asma and all her team .
I am so glad I took this workshop, it really is a game-changer. Empathy is something we all think we know but we probably don't. Dr Asma does a tremendously good job at introducing concepts and also giving real-life examples. The quality of education is beyond exceptional. According to me, it is a must for anyone appearing for MRCOG and it also doubles as an important life skill in clinical work.
Thank you Dr Asma and beMRCOG team
I had the good fortune to stumble upon this platform while looking for courses for my Part 3 MRCOG exam and I didn’t regret it. I signed up for the GPC (now the Smart Intensive Course) and got a personal call from Asma to set our goals and explain the road ahead. I have to tell you, you need to be dedicated to this course because you’ll get a very dedicated team giving you specific feedback on your performance and how to improve it. You’ll practice all modules with a team of candidates who become good friends by the end of the course and you go on practicing together even after the course is finished. I also did the Mock circuit which was a two day exam style practice which again sets you in the exam situation so you’re familiar with what to expect. I have recommended this course to my friends and would recommend it to anyone planning to sit the Part 3 exam. Thank you Asma and the great time for your help in this journey.
Hello All! I want to express my deepest gratitude for bemrcog and DrASMA NAQI for conducting such an organized EBCOG workshop which helped the candidates to overcome with first attempt . Alhamdullilah I am also one the candidate joined her workshop with a vague idea of real exam but within that 2 days she did her best to give us maximum about exam pattern . I recommend her EBCOG workshop for all EBCOG aspirants . Thank you ASMA for being an exemplary and visionary mentor.
After several 1-on-1 sessions with Asma, she recommended me to join the Empathy Workshop to take my consultations further. Initially I was hesitant, and I thought I already had Empathy. But then I discussed with Asma and it was part of my learning needs, so I joined. and I DID NOT REGRET a single thing. Even though it is recorded, you can still get into the mood and situation of the workshop. It tells so many important and PRACTICAL points to elevate your consultation, not only for the MRCOG exam, but also for daily practice. After that workshop my 1-on-1 sessions have improved and I am more relaxed when talking to patients or role players. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, even medical students!
I gave my EBCOG exams in Nov 2021 and I took two days crash course for the same . There was sudden change in the pattern of exam ,which was announced couple of days before exams hence I didn’t know how to go about it and this crash course really streamlined my final preparation and gave me an extra edge while performing my osce with lots of confidence. I highly recommend this course to everyone who is planning to write European board osce exam . Thank you Dr Asma for the course

In this testimony I will share my journey with BeMRCOG. Actually, I took few days to write my testimony as I wanted to find the right words to tell about this high standard teaching platform. With the dedication and extreme support from brilliant mentor, Dr. Asma Naqi, and the amazing co-moderators (Dr. Ummarah and Dr. Meeta)I managed to pass part 3 from first attempt without the need to subscribe to any other platform. I am so grateful to the effort that Asma and her team put and that lead to my success.
I felt so lucky joining BeMRCOG. I subscribed first to E-course which is a self-study course that introduced me to part 3 syllabus and helped me understand the domains. Then I registered to Group Practice Course and here where the magic started. At the beginning, I thought that part 3 is all about knowledge and guidelines. However, when I went through an intensive 8 weeks of group practice, I realized that part 3 is nothing except communication and non-technical skills. Group practice is a unique course where mindset is the main domain and where everything at the end are put together and makes sense. It is indeed a life changer. This splendid high standard teaching style made my learning experience enjoyable and memorable. At the end of the group practice, I got hooked to Bemrcog and subscribed to all other courses offered by Asma.
I learned from Communication Skills Course how to deal with all types of patient’s attitudes and how communication with an examiner is completely different than a consultant.
I went through Information Gathering and Empathy Workshops and they helped me with the structure of the consultation.
Clinical governance was a hidden area to me until I subscribed to the intellectually structured Clinical Governance Course.
I definitely subscribed to Mock Circuit which surprisingly had a real simulated patient and a lay examiner. Lots of structured feedbacks were given at this circuit that helped me in my final preparation.
Audiobook as well was a turning point that polished and refined my skills, helped me; understand more about the modules, what to expect from the patient or the examiner, and the most important thing how to anticipate patient’s or examiner’s questions and decode the tasks at the 2-minute preparation time of each station.
Speaking Star Course helped me with my English proficiency and my responses to patients.
Lots and lots of techniques and tips I gained from joining BeMRCOG. In addition, many other free courses were generously given by Dr. Asma during Covid-19 period to ease the stress of the candidates and to keep them on the right track.
For my final preparation I must say that I am very thankful to Dr. Asma who conducted 1-1 Sessions and Privet Mock Circuit with me while she was traveling. She put every effort possible to push me into success. Without her I would not have made it.
I enjoyed every single course and learned a lot from each one of them. BeMRCOG courses although structured to pass MRCOG, however, they added a lot to my personality, communication, and career.
I would recommend and advise anyone who wants to pass part 3 to join BeMRCOG and to subscribe to the Ultimate Package, which includes most of the mentioned courses, and then not to worry as success will be on the horizon.
Thank you once more Dr. Asma for all your effort that contributed to my success on part3.
To me taking MRCOG exam has been a learning process,and through this journey i came across Bemrcog at the last step.The huge favour it has done to me was to take off my fear of taking the exam(with no clinical experience in NHS ,being out of practice for good 5 years).I really like the way the whole team works on building your capacity to tackle the case scenaios from different modules.I believe that is the best part as it makes you keep your neurons alive during the stressful hours of exam,so that you can take the shock of having odd(rare )scenarios. Apart from that group practice also helps in non academic support for the exam(coming across people from different workplace settings and learning from them etc).I owe huge thanks to Asma,Umarrah and Maryam for helping me and keeping me motivated throughout this journey.
In preparation for EBCOG Part 2 exam I took BeMRCOG Part 3 course. It was an eye-opening experience for me when it came to identifying and putting into practice Advanced Communication Skills and Clinical Governance (Part of Ultimate package, also available as separate Workshops).
I learnt in a structured way when and what to expect in challenging interpersonal communication situations, and it gave me confidence that I could handle them both with empathy and professionalism.
Additionally, Clinical governance workshop boosted my arsenal of knowledge and skills, that resulted in a deeper understanding of importance of CG and swift connection of facts (instead of just learning the Audit/Risk management/Quality improvement or critical appraisal etc. steps by heart).
Besides workshops, Group Practice was an enjoyable experience based on simulation techniques. Additionally, it guided me with a quality feedback from talented and dilligent BeMRCOG workers.
Last but not least, Dr Asma was a great mentor that individually approached preparation plan and her experience in teaching shone through.
Thank you BeMRCOG from the successful EBCOG candidate:)
Dr Silvaine Dalli (Supreme package with all the workshops, Audiobook)
I stumbled on BeMRCOG during a google search and I have never looked back. I cannot recommend Dr Asma Naqi's teaching and mentoring enough, she has not only really prepared me really well for my final exams but has even moulded me into a better doctor. She took me from a shy person who hates talking in public to someone who can confidently carry out a consultation without any hiccups. My communication skills have improved a lot and now consultations with patients are smoother and a better experience for all involved. During the exam I felt in control and able to do the tasks confidently, all thanks to Asma. I'm only sorry I did not stumble upon her before when preparing for my written exams.
Dr Mario Refalo (Ultimate Package for MRCOG Part 3 and Immersion Course Audiobook. )
My study buddy stumbled on BeMRCOG on a google search, merely a year ago. Who would have told me that this would be a life changer for me in many different camps.
First and most importantly BeMRCOG and especially Dr Asma Naqi, has moulded me into a better human being, a better physician. I can now communicate better with patients and also with my friends in general. So I have seen massive positive improvements in my career and in my personal life.
Second - The Ultimate Package was truly the ultimate package - there is everything in it and together with the Immersion Course Audiobook they were the perfect knowledge bank and skills bank for me to pass the exam successfully on the get go. Therefore I will be forever grateful and in debt to BeMRCOG and to Dr Asma Naqi - for you have made this happen for me.
I will keep on recommending BeMRCOG for the rest of my life, till my last breath. This is it! This is the Best Platform for these exams - MRCOG and EBCOG .
THANK YOU !
Dr Asma assessed my needs before the course started and helpdesk was very much helpful .Modules are structured very well starting from brainstorming questions,audio of theory,simple notes, diagrams and lot of good SBAs to practice. There are lot of books,courses and social media groups available but with so much extra information outside basic OBS and gyne.Its not always possible to teach all basic sciences and to attend long classes for practicing doctors. BeMRCOG PART 1 COURSE made it simple,easy to read, understand the syllabus.
They mentioned in the introduction that course material is more than enough to crack the exam in one attempt.I revised 3 times as it became very easy to do after 1st reading.
I am very thankful to Asma ma'am and the whole team to give me a best start to the MRCOG journey.
I am very happy to write this testimonial for bemrcog. When I joined the course, I was a bit worried because my timings were very odd, but Dr Asma was very flexible. She gave me full attention in our private sessions. I found her techniques extremely helpful and my favourite is the 'module mindset' which is a life changer. I have a private practice and these techniques have resulted in a very good response from my patients. So, passing part 3 was just a small part of my extraordinary experience with Dr Asma. I would strongly recommend bemrcog courses to everyone who is looking for a high quality experience. Thank you.
Dr Zeinab Mohammad (Part 3 E-course, 1 to 1 sessions, Empathy Workshop, Information Gathering Workshop, CG Workshop. )
Dear Asma and BeMRCOG team,
I wanted to feedback on the totally brilliant experience I had with your courses after I have now passed my MRCOG. I joined this course after having failed twice with different other courses. Then there was a gap of almost two years because of covid. I had lost hope and confidence in myself when I joined this amazing team. Asma was extremely supportive in understanding my lack of confidence and very patient towards my slow uptake of her advice.
Soon after I did the workshops, it changed both my work and personal life in such a positive way. I have been able to employ the skills and tips I learnt, with great results almost immediately. Asma is very knowledgeable and experienced in what she does. She was able to tailor the one-to-one sessions to my individual needs as I took three cycles of these sessions with her. I also feel that the recorded workshops are extremely convenient and really something very unique. The experience with BeMRCOG from start to finish was faultless. I can see why BeMRCOG has been awarded the best online medical education programme! I have recommended the course to everyone I know.
Dr Bhavana Kasu (Empathy live workshop, Information gathering live workshop, Mock circuit)
I have attended live 1 day workshops on Empathy and IG conducted by Asma in Jan.2021 . These workshops immensely helped me for my part 3 mrcog preparation. I would recommend that its a must read for part 3 exam and also to mould yourself into a better individual. I will always be grateful to Asma for introducing me to what real 'Empathy' means in life. Her mock circuit with lay examiner and role players a week before rcog exam helped me understand how the real online exam is going to be. I wish Asma success in all her future endeavours.
This is a great course to set up your foundation and increase your understanding of the Part 3 exam. Its a dedicated course which gives one the real tricks that are needed for the real exam. Dr Asma works tirelessly to the benefit of her students, the course offers the inside view of the workings of the exam.
Dr sara mohamed (e-course / one to one mentoring / empathy workshop/ information gathering workshop/ mock circuit )
I am so delighted today to thank Bemrcog family lead by Asma Naqui for helping me through a difficult time in my life to achieve my goal and pass part 3. Asma is not only a proffesional mentor, she is an elder sister. she is sincere and confident. Neither can I describe her real efforts nor can I express my feelings as she believed in me and helped me in many different ways; finding me a spot in her schedule despite the very short notice, being patient with me and an attentive listener. I am really thankful that I had you in my way for RCOG. Although it happened late, you transformed me to be a better doctor in my own practice. I recommend all the courses Asma will advice you because she knows very well what you need. Simply, Asma is a person you can trust.
Dr Anna Henig (Part 3 E-course, 1 to 1 sessions, Empathy Workshop, Information Gathering Workshop, CG Workshop)
I am so happy to be writing this testimonial for BeMRCOG Part 3 courses after passing my exam in April 2021. This exam was the most difficult exam of my life, not just because of the prolonged waiting time due to Covid-pandemic but also because this was my last chance. I am a UK trainee and came across BeMRCOG courses when I had lost hope completely. I had attended several courses in the past but still failed the exam, so I did not have any high hopes. After joining, I had my needs assessment meeting with Dr Naqi, and she suggested a personalised learning plan for me. It involved doing some workshops with her alongside the one-to-one private sessions I was already having. Initially, I was a bit stubborn to adopt the small, subtle changes in my approach, particularly the ‘module-based approach over the topi-based approach. But just after three sessions, I found myself enjoying the sessions thoroughly. I must admit that I had to take three one-to-one circuits with Dr Naqi, but it was all worthwhile. Apart from exam preparation, Dr Naqi used to share very practical tips, and she has that aura of motivation and inspiration. I used to feel like I am talking to a friend instead of a tutor. She is a true mentor, and I can say that I have never met someone like her. Not just that she is an excellent teacher, she is a beautiful person inside out. I look up to her in so many ways and for so many things. I owe her so much and feel that words are not just enough. I wanted to pass this exam because I did not have the heart to let her down. She sat with me endlessly and so patiently dealt with my shortcomings. I would certainly recommend this course to everyone, not just for passing the exam, but for personal growth as well. I just wish I knew BeMRCOG a couple of years ago. Many thanks, Asma and the BeMRCOG team, for providing us with this wonderful platform.
I am very pleased to share my experience with you. I passed the MRCOG Part 3 exam on my first sitting. The exam was cancelled few times during the pandemic and it was extremely stressful but Dr Naqi was helpful and supportive all the way through. I seriously don’t know how I would have made it without her.
I am an O&G trainee in the UK. I found this course online and thought it would be a good start for the exam preparation. I was reluctant at first as it seemed to be targeting oversees candidates but I decided to give it a go. The eCourse seemed a little bit basic but after an online one to one assessment by Dr Asma Naqi we made a tailored plan for my learning. I booked one to one mentoring and worked through the module system designed by Dr Naqi using the eCourse as my base. It took me a while to get used to different than commonly used module mindset but once I understood it, it helped me work through any scenario, even in clinical situations I was not familiar with. I learned not to stress over the topic I did not know well, but to keep the structure of the consultation and still tick many boxes and achieve a good score.
Dr Naqi is the best mentor I could have imagined. She cares about every individual and tailors her teaching to the student. She gave me many useful tips and a lot of support. She directed me towards the workshops which helped me develop the skills I needed to master in order to pass the exam and become a better doctor. Skills I have learnt helped me massively in my day to day practice. My patient and colleague communication improved significantly and I am able to conduct successful consultations in shorter period of time.
I would recommend this course to anyone who plans to sit the exam and Dr Naqi as a tutor and educator in any aspect of your medical career.
I just finished my Empathy workshop. I must say it was a ride. I used to think I am Empathic, now I know I was only sympathetic. I used to think I did not need this workshop. But as always I trust Dr Asma Naqi blindly and therefore I joined. My journey through this workshop was one of enlightenment and of awe. I was so wrong thinking that I was empathic. The concepts that I have discovered and learnt are out of this world. This will definitely help me so much in the exam, but more importantly it will help me sooo much more in my professional and personal life. If anyone has not done this workshop yet, I advice you do a favour to yourself and join. You will be amazed at the techniques and steps you will learn. Treat yourself with this workshop, I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised and you will learn so so so much. I completely immersed myself in the workshop came out with 36 pages of notes. That means I wrote 36 pages of notes just to cover my very first 1-2 minutes into the consultation. So you can imagine what great deal I have learnt. So go on and discover it for yourself. Thank you Dr Asma Naqi this was amazing. Now I need to absorb it all in and start putting it into practice. Forever grateful. Now every course you have I will be joining, and now I do it because of first hand experience, and because of the huge change you brought in me. I WANT TO EVOLVE INTO A BETTER HUMAN BEING. THANK YOU.
The basis of MRCOG part 3 is communication!
and therefore this course is an excellent way to start preparation for mrcog part 3. They scrutinise the way you speak which includes your body language, your tone, your phrases and words to see if they are appropriate or not and give you clear, crisp and much needed feebacks that you will relish for your lifetime. I must congratulate and sincerely thanks my speaking buddy Yumnah who under the guidance of Dr Asma has taken personal pain in picking up these points and suggesting ideas to improvise so beautifully !! I would like to definately recommend this course to everyone i know!
DR KRITIKA VATS
Dr Nasrin Balla Mohamed Khalafalla (MRCOG SPEAKING STAR)
I was looking for a course to improve my fluency, pronunciation, vocabulary and confidence to speak and communicate in English and Speaking Star course more than helpful. My study partner (Yumna) under the supervision of Dr Asma, identified my language problems and smartly guided me through the course. I gained an immediate improvement in my language as well as my communication skills. They took the time to understand my needs as an exam candidate and gave me a few amazing tips and plans to practice as much as i can. I wholeheartedly recommend, Speaking Star Course to everyone I know.

Dr RAHAMATHUNNISA Kareem (MRCOG Part 2 E-Course and Question Bank)
Hello Dear Friends
I Dr Rahamathunnisa Kareem Mohammed I started my journey for Mrcog in 2017 after my 2unsuccessful attempts in 2016. Being a non UK candidate it was a tough task for me to know about the UK practice
When I saw the post of Dr Asma Naqi in Bemrcog web site I felt this will be the best pathway for me to be MRCOG. Her lectures are full of motivation will give self confidence and will give a strong foundation about ethics clinical governance and very important is How to approach a patient and how we can be a Safe Doctor and what are our defects in present practice
To be honest with you all I have faced failure many times but only this attempt was the first attempt where I gave full 8mths for this exam. I came out of the exam hall crying because it was the toughest exam and so many important guidelines which we feel sure one question will come not even a single question came
And most of the questions were clinical governance in indirect way.
I took Dr Asma’s course in 2017. I studied from the course but I had not prepared good notes as advised. Without analysing this I jumped from this course to other courses which were training about SBAs emqs etc. I took Mrcpi when I failed Mrcpi, later again I came back to this course and I attended debriefing meeting of Dr Asma in which she supported me a lot and adviced me not to switch from one exam to other.
This was the first step for my success.
Please check where you are lacking where are your defects because even we have excellent mentors like Dr Asma but unless we realise our mistake we will not be able to complete this task of part 2.
Please make good notes and try to concise them as much as possible. Please Read Repeatedly because what I found in this attempt was I was able to complete only my notes of guidelines, this course and I was able to finish only 2 books the new Andrew and get through. In fact when I went for the exam I felt ya Allah I have done only few Recalls few books what am I going to do?? And on top exam was sooo tough
But please don't give up. Believe only in yourself Don't distract yourself by attending too many courses have your basic concepts strong
please avoid having many study partners just stick to one who's matching your frequency and whenever you are not able to answer a question in your clinical practice please go back to your notes and guidelines and please don't feel Bad that you are forgetting because it's human tendency to forget and some are really gifted with strong memory but I use to forget a lot but still I am thankful to almighty because he gave me strength to go back and Read again and again
please give full 6 to 8mths only for this exam avoiding all social gatherings etc because it's Really very traumatic if we don't give sufficient time than later we are Depressed because we couldn't do this time and again to swim up to bring back our mindset to Read again it takes a minimum of one to two mths again to end up with difficulty in completing portion etc so please
Dedicate yourself fully and I am sure God will help you to Do it and try to Read the motivation blogs written by Dr Asma because whenever I wanted to give up I used to Read the unforgettable experience of Asma with her patient Ummardaraz 😰
Dr Sweeti Pawar (Part 2 ,CG and statistics workshop)
(Dr Sweeti Pawar)
Hi , I am glad to share my part 2 MRCOG success and must mention significant contribution of Asma and BeMRCOG family .The courses are aligned as per basic principles of teaching and learning along with syllabus .It not only helps you pass the exam but helps in your personality grooming .It stimulates your thought process ,analytical skills .It emphasises importance of planning and constructive efforts .Rather than spoon feeding , it provokes to crave for perfection in knowledge .In a way makes you independent in approaching any exam as principles are established .I am extremely thankful to Asma for being my mentor not only for exam but for almost all challenging situations in my life .
Dr RABIA BINTI MOHAMED SHAH Mohamed Shah (MRCOG Part 3 E-Course & One-to-One Sessions)
Thank you very much bemrcog for helping me pass the part 3 Mrcog exams in November.
I subscribed for the one on one sessions with Dr. Asma Naqi.
Included in the package was the e-course.
The e-course itself is a fantastic resource.
I only wish that I had read and listened to this e-course for my part 2.
The e-course gives in depth explanation of all the difficult parts of the part 3 including clinical governance and tips on handling difficult patients and how to approach each module.
Overall, it is an extremely helpful resource for the exam and even for my own clinical practice.
Now, as regards the one on one with Dr. Asma. I had a total of 7 sessions in all.
We managed to cover the entire 14 modules.
The sessions cleared all my doubts and queries about the examination and gave me a clear picture of how to approach each module.
Thank you very much Dr. Asma.
My heartfelt gratitude for all the help and effort that you have put in to help me get through this exam.
I am very grateful to this amazingly excellent platform that prepared me very well for the part 3 Mrcog exam in a very short time and very happy that I have passed. I want to thank Dr.Asma Naqi and all the co-moderators who have put in their hardwork and dedication into this practice. and it shows from the way this course has been planned. It is very comprehensive and on point with its tasks esp the domains we need to work on during our practice. The moderators gave a very detailed non jugdemental feedback on the practice that helped me learn from not on only mine but others' mistakes as well. A must course for all those who are struggling to pass the exam. Thank you and good luck. keep up the excellent work.
Fortunately I passed MRCOG part 3 in the first go. I would especially recommend BEMRCOG group practice to overseas candidates since it probably is the only course that develops the right mindset and perspective of a competent ST5 over a period of 6 -8 weeks by aiming for a behavioural change. It is quite intensive and would be ideal for someone who wants to give part 3 their best shot and get over with it in the first attempt.
Dr Sreenisha Somini (MRCOG Part-3 E-Course & Group Practice)
Hello everyone, I am Dr Sreenisha .By Gods grace I cleared MRCOG Part3 in first attempt held in Nov 2019 . I owe all my success to the entire BeMRCOG family Dr Asma naqi and Co-moderators Fatima Minisha, Maryam , ummarah Training during group practice helped me for facing the stress of part 3 exam . In the beginning i struggled to cope up with timing and pattern of group practice then gradually came in to the flow . Asmas module based flash cards helped me a lot during exam . The Bemrcog team worked day and night to prepare us for the big day . Winding up live sessions were really good to clarify our doubts and thoughts . They were with us to guide through the right path .Thanking you Asma and BeMRCOG team once again for this tremendous support . I would definitely recommend your course for my colleagues too.
Hello, I am Preeti Poghe, I would like to thank Asma for forming a base of my success…
She was the one who taught from the very basics….but nothing spoonfed….I started thinking about stations rather than learning(mugging) them….One thing that she has built up is the 360 degrees approach….I was very tunnel visioned…couldn’t think out of the box..which is actually the reason why many candidates fail…I would highly recommend her course…
Thank you Asma ….. and all the best everyone!!!
I am Dr. Fahmida Kamran from Pakistan currently working in Brunei. I joined BeMRCOG for part 2 preparation when I was struggling for proper guidance. During my search I found BeMRCOG course and subscribed for it in 2016. Dr. Asma has formulated 14 modules that are simplified, easy to understand and exam oriented. The way Dr. Asma teaches is very professional and encouraging. She always advised for structured study module wise and encouraged to make my own notes, so I followed her advise and find it very helpful for my preparation. With kind support and encouragement of Dr. Asma I was able to pass my part 2 easily. I joined the group for part 3 but couldn't continue due to personal reasons but whatever I learnt in few sessions by Dr. Asma was very helpful to pass my part 3 also in November 2019.
I strongly recommend BeMRCOG e-course and live workshops to all MRCOG candidates as it will help them to get success in exam.
I want to thank Dr. Asma as she is a great mentor for me and a nice human being.
I have joined be mrcog family from July 2018 and learned alot from the group practice which was supervised by Dr. Asma .I understood the concept of the exam and what are the domains and modules from her course materials and feedback .My words never enough to thanks her .I remember her efforts and words to motivate each member in the group .I aknowledge that her way of teaching help me in understanding the exam and clear it from 1st attempt .I do recommend be mrcog course and espitially dr.Asma as a mentor to all candidates who plan for part3 mrcog. Best wishes to bemrcog family🙏🏻
Dr. Nasir Asma'a al-razi
I am Dr Soe Soe Wai from Myanmar. I really wanna say thank you to beMrcog for passing my part 3 exam in November 2019 in one stroke. Actually I have subscribed E course from beMrcog which gave me great support for my study period. Also clinical governance course and 2 days workshop are very helpful indeed. Hearty thanks to Dr Ashma and beMrcog.
Dr Sarwat Jabeen (E Course.CG Workshop.2 Days Workshop for part 3 Mrcog.)
Finally the day came and I’m writing my testimonial after passing part 3 in first attempt.My journey started with BeMRCOG a year before when I subscribed the e courses for part 3.I attended the group practice and workshops.Passing part 3 in first attempt was my biggest dream ,thinking impossible though.I want to thank Asma and BeMRCOG team especially Fathima and Ummarah who helped me seeing my dreams coming true.They worked hard day and night to provide the guidance at the highest level.Their valuable advises and feedback on the performance of course candidates gave me the utmost chances for improvement.This was the only one online preparatory course that I attended and had greatest level of satisfaction at the end.Asma’s marvelous mentoring made all of my concepts for achieving success in such a challenging exam so clear that I was able to accomplish it with little practice only in day to day life.She made it so easier for us that I found no difficulty in attempting most of the stations without practicing recalls .At the end I would like to say that I was lucky enough who got a chance to learn from BeMRCOG and was a part of team for little period of time that’s a matter of great privilege for me.
Alhamdullah I passed mrcog part 3 from the first attempted.
I would like to thank BeMRCOG family Asma and co-moderators for the great effort done for us.
It was difficult to cope with the group practice at the first time and I really struggled with it at the beginning, but once I got used to the rules it changed all my concept about the mrcog exam...
The difference of this course from courses that they don’t do recalls or individual cases,, but they go with the modules and flash cards, so I just needed to use that flash card for that module.
So by the end of the 6 weeks group practice course, I ended with 14 flash cards I revised before the exam.
Other difference is that this course is not a spoon feeding course,, Asma knows how to extract the information from you by active discussion in the group at the end of the day and highlight the important points in each modules .
Am really proud of what I’ve achieved finally..
Thank you Asma , Maryam and Fatima, you are really great team ...
Dr saba omer (part 3 e course, group practise and 2 days workshop)
Just the day before the results i was going through the long list of testimonials for bemrcog n i really wished that im also able to write a testimonial for bemrcog and here i am,writing, after passing my part 3 exam in the first attempt by the grace of GOd who guided me to start my mrcog journey with bemrcog.
For me mrcog only seemed like a faint dream because of the general view that only the few lucky n exceptional ppl are able to pass in the first attempt😊.and the few challenges for me when i started my preperation in july were i didnt have a study partner throughout, i was out of practise for about 8 months so i felt that could be a disadvantage and 3rd i had recently been unable to pass the much easier MRCPI osce.bemrcog course helped me overcome these uncertainities.
this course changes your thinking and your approach relevant to the preperation , without you even realizing it.and its all because of the effective and advanved teaching methods used by Asma. because Asma has a huge experience of teaching ,she recognizes each student's individual needs and though she appears very strict, but that is all to help unlearn the fixed behaviors and learn afresh what is required for mrcog osce.
Also the bemrcog is unique in the sense that it focuses on modules rather than recalls, extensive exercises on understanding the domains, direct feebacks, self reflections and encourages independant effort, so by the end of this course all these things become your reflex to much extent.
the group practice onnwhatsapp is also a great interactive learning place where the co moderators give individual feedbacks and also share their experiences.
i also attended the 2 day workshop which i found very helpful because it was my first rehearsal of a live circuit session, it helped overcome anxiety and fear of performing live , and also recieved valuable feedbacks from asma.
all in all i would highly recommend bemrcog course for starters as it gives a very strong foundation.this course must not be confused with other courses, which merely give ready made materials and solved recalls.
doing recalls is nodoubt important but if you have a strong base and understanding of the modules and the domains (which i got from bemrcog), one can easily do the new stations aswell.
im really thank ful to Asma and the comoderators fathima and ummarah.may God bless them with alot.
I am very delighted to pass my MRCOG in the first attempt- thanks to BeMRCOG. Asma and co-moderatos go an extra mile to help. I found the BeMRCOG team always there to help, encourage and support. This course is unique and focuses on Modules rather than individual cases. Once I was taught how to approach and what is expected from the candidate in a particular Module, rest became straightforward. In my opinion, BeMRCOG is equally useful for both local and international candidates. I have been practicing in the UK but before this course, I had no idea what is expected from me in the exam and how to approach it, all thanks to the dedication of Asma and her team.
I registered or the part3 ecourse and 1-1 with dr Asma ,just 11 days before my EBCOG OSCE exam. Dr Asmas dedication to helping me is truly exceptional.it was like she was taking the exam herself! She devoted her time and with the help of her e course I Aced EFOG exam. I honestly believe I couldn’t have done it without her help and guidance .i will take up her courses for part 2 and 3 MRCOG definitely .Dont hesitate to register ,this is a course that works , I recommend also work shop or sessions with dr Asma because she is a phenomenal teacher. All the best
I subscribed statistics course in May this year and found it very descriptive, practical and easy to understand. Although had to rush in few elements at the end of course because of end date deadline but most of it was quite informative.
I even followed steps of workbook and all this helped me pass my MFSRH part one exam. I am hoping to re subscribe this course before my next part and hopefully solidify my existing knowledge on statistics once and for all.
Thank you team Bemrcog
I joined Be MRCOG after my failed attempt in January 2019 and believe me within 4 months of joining Bemrcog I have cleared MRCOG part 2 exam.This course basically cleared my concepts and gave me confidence how to approach the exam.My special thanks to Dr Asma my mentor.She helped me to overcome my weakness and fear.This course is very good for for Non UK candidates. She keeps a track on your study and guide you in a write direction.I give my credit of clearing MRCOG part 2 to her.
Dr Nithya Jagadeesan (PART 3 Group practice,E-Course,Online workshop)
This is one of the happy moments I have been longing for years.I joined BeMRCOG family after my failed attempt in November 2018. I remember this chinese proverb whenever someone asks about Asma's teaching.Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day.Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Asma never teaches in question and answer format. She teaches the concepts, how to approach each and every module , what is expected in each domain and the communication theme. This was very new to me being an overseas candidate( India). Six weeks of group practice with live sessions changed my outlook towards the exam, I evolved slowly towards the attitude needed to approach the exam.Self reflective practice as suggested by Asma helps to identify one's positive and negative points.I am extremely thankful to my mentors Asma, Fatima, Maryam who spent their valuable time in tracking my progress and motivating me.Special thanks once again. Happy to be a part of BeMRCOG Alumini.
Dr Surekha Vatikutti (MRCOG Part 3 and group practice )
Dear friends, I am Surekha Vatikutti, passed MRCOG in april’19.Passing this exam was my biggest dream ever and thanks to Dr Asma and BeMRCOG team for making this happen. This was my second attempt, first attempt I totally didn’t have a clue about the domains and I failed miserably. At this stage I joined this course,e tutorials helped me a lot to get an insight into the domains and group practice with the feedback was the best. My advise would be please participate actively in the group practice , work hard , practice, practice and definitely you will reach your goal
Dr Shahida Tasneem (Part 3 e-course, WhatsApp Group Practice, Part 3 Workshop, Clinical Governance Workshop )
So the time has come for testimonial for BeMRCOG for which I have waited for almost one year. It is difficult to describe the whole year story of emotions and hardships, only what I feel at the end are immense thoughts of gratitude to Asma Naqi for all the push and pulls throughout this journey. In my opinion there are so many things in this course which make it very unique and most beneficial. This is only course which gives you concept of modules and domains and whole preparation is module wise instead of station wise. This thing helps in a way that candidate can have an idea of answer key and even can predict the next question of role player. All other groups will only work on stations and topics but the candidate can never learn the basic skills of each particular station which is being checked there by college. This is the only course which works on communication themes like dealing with difficult and angry patient and breaking bad news and the candidate can get maximum marks by reproducing the theme of communication of the task. No other person gives you an idea of competencies, emergency management, team working, leadership skills and clinical governance of which the overseas candidate are typically ignorant of. Six week group activity guides for each of above mentioned skills and Asma keeps performance track of each participant. E-tutorials are the only written directions about part 3 which I have come across during whole exam preparation, which cannot be found in any other place. Feedbacks given by Asma , Fatima and Maryam are priceless features of this platform. Asma is a trained teacher and is very well aware of UK system being presently working there in UK and is also well aware of overseas candidate weakness being herself overseas doctor. Above all she takes responsibility of each candidate , who joins the group and take him through learning process with full devotion. There is no doubt that her team especially Fatima and Maryam are real jewels in her team. Now after passing this exam I feel that Asma and her whole team will remain part of my life as I just love them and I always recommend to all who are preparing for this exam to stick with BeMRCOG. Thanks Asma , Fatima, Maryam and whole Bemrcog team.
It is always great when a journey comes to an end. The feeling of passing obstacles, overcoming negative emotions and finding a Gain after pain is very rewarding. When the dream of MRCOG started for me, i was feeling like i want to touch the sky while being burden with responsibilities, a bunch of them! I did not find any motivation to start going this way ; that's I passed part 1 exam on 2007, followed by a long period of hibernation till 2016, when i had the call in my brain '' it looks like i missed something! '' it was the ten years allowance between part 1 and 2! I urgently did my AOT and could book an exam just before the deadline. This was because i never knew anyone who could pass part 2 without working in UK, this was my experience at that time. I was extremely happy after sitting it with only 2 months light reading of the guidelines because i thought after sitting it, I can do it. It is no more that far as i felt all the time. I prepared well for the next attempt while still burden by work and family responsibilities and i had that passion pushing me: iam playing a very interesting and challenging game and iam absolutely ready to win that game. With Tears in my eye and a dancing heart i celebrated the pass in part 2 exam in that attempt and litterally felt the sky next to my fingers. The dream is doable. It was an amazing moment 💕💕.
Personally iam not a patient person who could tolerate to wait for long. I was pushed to go for part 3 exam 4 weeks only after my result. It was a very short time but i was overwhelmed with the shock of that moment. I surfed the internet for any help for part 3 exam and found very few. All what i knew was that 3 of my friends who worked in UK for years attempted it on the last occasion and all couldn't pass it. This was a second reason to directly go for it, Exploration. It is a hobby for someone who dares, yes, i should see it myself. At that time i knew about BeMRCOG and about Asma Naqi (who always asked me to call her just, Asma without dr 😊😊 ) and i felt i found the brain i was searching for. I felt many similarities between me and her. The work conditions before MRCOG in the gulf area, the self confidence, persistence and the amazing Helicopter viewing of anything . Asma was amazing in brainstorming, motivation, Debating and putting Rules. The IT team in BeMRCOG did a great job in the two days workshop to make it a real time experience . You see all and is seen by all at the same moment. They helped Asma in her battle to do what she exactly wants to. This was an eye opening, fear breaking and a real motivation to make me believe more and more that the dream is doable. Iam writing this testimonial willing heartedly, it could be inspiring for any of my colleagues to believe in themselves, and to enjoy their journey of MRCOG with a great person like Asma and the whole team of BeMRCOG ❤️❤️
Cairo, Egypt, passed MRCOG in April 2019 June 10 2019
It has been my dream to be a member of RCOG and I know the journey is not easy, and everyone has his/her own challenges. Hard word is the key to success. Getting good study materials and mentor have helped me in overcoming the challenges in this journey. BeMRCOG and Dr Asma made me understand about the exam and system in UK as well as the expectation from exam from all candidates. Definitely, beMRCOG and Dr Asma are part my journey and make my dream come true. Thank you so much.
Dear All, So happy to share my journey with Be- MRCOG family which started in october ,2017 with subscription for part 2 and ended now as i have cleared my part 3 .To be honest its not a esay journey especailly when you have no experinece working in UK .

Dr Uzma Sabir Aleem (Part 3 workshop.Part 3 Online course and Whats app group practice)
Hello all, this is Uzma Sabir Aleem.Alhamdollilah I am today standing among passed candidates and writing this testimonial. I joined bemrcog in March 2018 after passing part 2 in first attempt, without a clue about part 3. Bemrcog was the first course I took to begin my preparation for part 3. Asma is an amazing, very strict teacher, who guided me towards the right path which all part 3 candidates should follow specially the non UK candidates, She will not provide you with cooked material but will make you work hard and use your energy in finding it the right way. , honestly speaking there were times I thought of just quitting all this struggle and live peacefully, than I got strength from Asma. She will pick your weakness, help you overcome them, identify your strength, and work with you to polish them further.The online material and group practice all will help you to organize yourself in a structured way and get ready for part 3.My advice to all members taking her course is to follow her advice religiously and you will surely be a winner soon. She is a tough mentor, but she will never misguide you. Give it your best and leave rest to ALLAH.I am very thankful to Asma and all the team for helping Non UK candidates, and giving them a true insight of part 3 exam. Thanks God bless you.
Mr Help Desk (Raana Sami Mohmand (OBGYN Registrar KSA))
I never ever attended any course for mrcog.but for part 3 I just got recordings of WhatsApp group discussion of bemrcog.i didn’t prepare exam but on my way from Birmingham to London on exam day,I went through all those recordings and I applied in exam same rules and I passed exam Alhamdulilah.now I encourage others to join this group prep.
Dr Namrata Gaikwad (MRCOG Part 2, Part 3, Group practice )
Having never worked in UK, passing MRCOG was always an uphill task. Some people even claimed it to be impossible. But prior experience with Dr. Asma made me believe otherwise. E-course tutorials made me understand the module clearly with key words important in each module. Rigorous group practice helped it to be our second nature. I can't thank Dr. Asma enough. Thanks Dr. Asma, Dr. Fathima and whole BeMRCOG team.
Like most other overseas candidates I was lost regarding preparations for part 3. Becoming a part of the BeMRCOG family I gradually learnt the communication skills, the systems in the NHS and by way of extensive feedbacks by Dr. Asma and other members of the group and self reflection I was gradually able to understand how to tackle various stations. So I was able to get through in first attempt without even visiting the UK or taking other UK courses. This is a wonderful course for overseas candidates like me.
Dr Rachael Lobo (BeMRCOG part 3 E- course + Group Practice)
The dream to attain membership at the RCOG has finally been fulfilled !! I feel privileged to able to share my experience here regarding clearing the last step.I was blessed to have completed the first two steps in the first attempt and wanted to do so with part 3 also.
Being an exam candidate residing and practicing outside UK,one has to think of strategies to optimise the process of exam prep.My period of study was approximately 8 weeks in total ,alongside regular clinical duties and calls.
It was clear that doing course after course wasn't the answer.Its important to choose 1-2 online courses and 1 circuit course in the UK.For the latter,I chose the part 3 course held by the RCOG itself.For the online course,I chose only one :the package of BeMRCOG E- course + Group practice, which proved to be one of the best decisions in the process of my prep.
For the group study,Dr Asma Naqi has smartly divided the candidates into small sets ,so as to have maximum interaction and discussion.I was initially unsure about how much I would be able to participate,but Dr Asma and her team of wonderful moderators- Fathima and Maryam- have a knack! They know how to get you out of your shell and on the right track .This is not a spoon fed course.It gets you to use your best skills and work on your weak points, so that at the time of the exam you put your best foot forward.They familiarise you with the UK terminology, system and patient care. Its challenging and demanding,but worth it in the end.You learn from the daily discussions ,feedbacks and the alternative methods of teaching utilised.All the resources are available for review on the E- course at your convenience!The scheduled live sessions are extremely informative and not to be missed.You learn how to manage the module,regardless of the specific question thrown at you, based on your daily group practice.
Dr Asma Naqi is extremely supportive and analyses each candidate,helping them to work on their weak points.This course isn't easy, but then again neither is the exam and thats exactly why it gets you ready for showtime! Extremely thankful to Dr Asma,Fathima and Maryam for their untiring efforts and guidance.
Dr Bidisha Roychoudhury (MRCOG part 3Full ECourse and 2days live online workshop)
Well Dr Asma's was the first course I heard about after passing MRCOG part 2 and her course guided me how to start my preparation modulewise and paved the way for my final preparations.Dr Asma is a hard task master and tries to bring out the best from the students starting from day 1 ,this course is thus the stepping stone for becoming MRCOG.
Hi everyone, I am Gul Fatima and here I want to share my experience regarding part 3. I cleared it in 2nd attempt. Reason being I was very vague not knowing the exams at all. Fortunately, I came across BeMrcog course and I listened to Asma ' s tutorials and that very moment was game changing. Tutorials were extraordinarily simple but those were keys to unlock Mrcog quest for me. After that I joined group practice and I found Asma's way of teaching absolutely untraditional and innovative. It was quite hectic and grilling exercise but after attending it I was confident about exams. I almost attended all workshops and enjoyed them a lot . I am very lucky to be a part of this team . Apart from exam learning, I have learnt alot about other things which I can't explain. Coming back to part 3, here you are taught how to approach exams in a systematic and methodical way and how to crack exams even if you dont know each and every station. I highly recommend this course to those especially who have no idea about NHS system or part 3 exams.
Dr Mazkiah Buang (MRCOG Part 2: 1. Full E-course with question bank 2. 3 day-intensive course 3. Clinical governance 4. Doctors in difficulty MRCOG Part 3: 1. E-course 2. 2 day-workshop 3. Group practice 4. 1 to 1 session (1 session))
I passed my Part 2 and Part 3, thanks to Dr. Asma.
Thank you Tahira Bashir Solehria for introducing me to Dr. Asma.
To pass the exam, you need to, not only attend or subscribe to these courses, but you need to apply the techniques taught to you by Dr. Asma.
For Part 2:
1. Write your own notes
2. Do flowchart
3. Listen to Dr. Asma's audio (use bluetooth headphone for maximum benefit)
5. Practice by doing questions
6. Discuss with friends (join facebook/ telegram/ whatsapp)
For Part 3:
1. Know the modules
2. Read PIL
3. Practice a lot (speak, speak, speak)
All of us can do it. We need a proper guidance.
And my guidance in this case was Dr. Asma.
I wanted to have my picture on BeMRCOG website from the day I came to know about this amazing group. The only way to get it done was to pass MRCOG. My name is Ummarah Ahmad and those who were in part 3 BeMRCOG group in 2018 know me well (I guess). I feel privileged to write a testimonial for Be MRCOG and feel proud to be a part of this group. Anyone sitting for an exam works hard and so did I. My struggle continued from 2016 since I passed MRCOG part 2. While working in UAE, under UK trained consultants, it made me kind of confident that I can get through part 3 without any difficulty but I realized very late that exam pattern has changed. I had already finished my three attempts before I joined BeMRCOG (many thanks to my friend Dr Tahira Bashir Solehria who encouraged me to join this group). Unfortunately, every attempt I was just 2 marks short of passing and felt that there is something which is missing in my preparation but no one could pinpoint. This made me really frustrated and disheartened and I started hating this exam. It was my sheer luck that I joined BeMRCOG and that began my journey towards success. Within few weeks of joining, I realized that all I need is to change my attitude towards exam preparation. Let me tell you how: Part 3 is all about a systematic way of learning which I lacked previously. After joining BeMRCOG I started going through E tutorials which covers all the 14 modules, domains & consultation model in a very structured way. The course subscription was for one year and it gave me ample time to analyse and correct myself. WhatsApp group was a very different way of learning. Everyone knows that there are trillions of online groups for the exam materials but I never liked any of those and had my reservations for this BeMRCOG WhatsApp group as well. Once I started participating, then there was no stopping. The best thing was that it is a supervised group unlike others where everyone comes up with a different idea and more confusion. Few things about Asma now. A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instil the love for learning (Brad Henry) and this is exactly what Asma did. She is such a loving person but at the same time very strict and disciplined. She encouraged the group members to do brain storming and then she used to add or modify our answers. It then became a second nature for me to try and find solutions myself. I had one on one sessions with Asma and she so correctly and effortlessly pin pointed my deficiencies which I did not realize myself. The videos of those session are a treasure for me 😊 Asma and BeMRCOG taught me that its not about passing an exam, its about changing your attitude towards patient care. MRCOG is not about having an additional degree in your name but to be a passionate physician who cares about his/her patients in an empathetic way This testimonial would not be complete without mentioning Dr Najam Mehmood (from DiD) who works behind the scenes and helped me overcome my fear of examiners, Thank you Najam. Asma and BeMRCOG you are the best because you brought out the best in us!
A really proud moment for me to be writing this testimonial. I consider myself really fortunate. This would not have been possible without BeMRCOG and Dr Asma. Being in this course opened my eyes to the requirements of Part 3. Dr Asma's untiring efforts, constant encouragement and relentless patience helped me achieve my dream. During the group practice and the valuable workshops I shed a lot of inhibitions which reduced my anxiety. So friends, do not doubt yourself, just follow Dr Asma's instructions. Nobody can stop you from be(ing)MRCOG!!! Many thanks to the whole BeMRCOG team for all the help.
I am Dr Poushali Sanyal. After passing the part 2 MRCOG I was absolutely confused about how to tackle the MRCOG part 3 examination. I had no experience of working in the UK. Moreover I was working in a government hospital in India and had a hectic schedule. It was then that my friend recommended the BeMRCOG course. I enrolled for the course and spoke to Asma mam and followed her course materials . I also attended the workshops. This course is an exhaustive one and covers all the aspects of the part 3 MRCOG exam. Dr Asma's untiring effort with every candidate she teaches is something that I must mention. She understood my lacunae and helped me overcome it in such a wonderful way. The 1 to 1 course with her was also a wonderful experience. She helped me understand that I had to excel in this international examination and I should not be satisfied with myself and had to work very very hard. She guided me about how to improve my communication skills and how to structure my thoughts in order to pass this exam. This course is extremely beneficial for overseas candidates . It understands our lacunae. Thank you Asma Mam and the BeMRCOG team. You helped me clear my part 3 exam with more than 80 percent marks. Thank you so much!This course is a must for overseas candidates in order to tackle all the domains of the MRCOG examination.
Dr Fouzia Ahmed (Part 3 E-Tutorials, Part 3 Whatsapp Group Activity, Part 3 2-day Online Workshop)
I would like to take this opportunity to share my journey of MRCOG on this platform. I cleared my part 2 MRCOG in July 2018 and began preparing for part 3 in December 2018 after receiving a surprise email from RCOG for an extra diet scheduled in February 2019. I went ahead with the exam booking despite the short time in hand and feeling all lost. Somebody then, recommended me online BEMRCOG course by Dr. Asma Naqi and today I am glad I subscribed to the e-tutorials as well as WhatsApp group activity and the two day workshop, as I would have never been able to sail through this ship of success without it.
The e-tutorials really gave a sound foundation with clear understanding of modules as well as clinical governance; especially for a non-UK candidate. Interaction with the mentor herself during the WhatsApp group activity strengthened the concept of the exam as well as encouraged lateral thinking and enabled being vocal in front of the group.
Apart from training for MRCOG, the course and the interaction with the mentor, Dr. Asma Naqi, also imbibes the right professional, personal and ethical values in an individual in the right direction.
Dr. Asma Naqi is definitely one of the exceptional mentors I have met till date with exemplary teaching methods and is truly a source of great inspiration and guidance through her immense knowledge and proficiency.
I really found all the courses I subscribed on BeMRCOG for part 3, unique and insightful, and recommend it to every fellow candidate desiring to achieve this dream of being an MRCOG. I sincerely thank BeMRCOG team for their immense support and wish success in all their future endeavours.
Would like to share my journey of MRCOG over here..
It's my immense pleasure to tell you..that in the beginning when I was just like many of us..a bit clueless for part 3..as never worked in the UK..so feeling like lost ..
I got bemrcog course for part 3..by..
Dr. Asma Naqi..
And she guided me through her rich experience and knowledge ..and caved a path for start up..
Of course at the end the dedication..the ambition..and the hard work..done by oneself.. matters..of course with a stroke of good luck as well..
But the mentor matters..for sure..
For being a torch bearer for me..
And many of us..🤞🤞
It was Be Mrcog course by Dr asma which played a big role in my achievement. It was Asma and her tutorials which laid the foundation and without her it would have been a difficult journey because she made me know what this exam really is and I learnt the basics from her. It was Greek and Latin in the beginning I couldn't understand and was wondering what are these modules, domains and themes and it was in her wats app group practice I started speaking out initially with a lot of hesitation
And then I felt okay and free to talk. And I also met a lot of people and made a lot of friends because of be mrcog. I recommend this course to people who finish part 2 as it is extremely helpful and provides an overall understanding of the part 3 exam.
There is no short cut to success and whenever you hit the rock bottom you bounce back higher. Both these facts get reinforced every time you achieve any wonder. Same went with me. I am Alhamdulillah an MRCOG now that was once thought of a distant dream, especially being a non UK candidate.
During this journey of mine, there is an exhaustive list of people who held me up and taught me things that contributed in where I’m standing today. One among those gems is surely Asma Naqi.
Once you look around for the Mentors to guide you through the way to this qualification, Asma Naqi must be among the top notch choices. She is an institution in herself, an emblem of self-directed learning which helps you depend on yourself and is the most advanced way of learning in current age. She will literally wake you up from numbness, helps you reach out for the enlightenment of knowledge and makes sure you do! She makes you asses your own needs, contemplate on them and then look out for the ways to sort them out. She knows exactly which neurons to activate in what situation.
Moreover, I understood the logic of the part 3 exam, demonstration of teamwork and leadership skills, affective expression of knowledge and essence of empathy and above all the art of reflective learning from this torch bearer.
I thank the BeMRCOG team to be a part of my struggle and wish the very best of luck to all those who are still on the way towards their aim. Fight hard and you will surely achieve it sooner than soon.
Becoming a Member of Royal college has been my dream. It has come true today.
BeMRCOG has helped me in understanding the modules of the exam in a better way. I’m indeed very happy to have Dr. Asma guide me in understanding the domains of the exam very well. She has in fact helped me how to look at the exam. I had a study buddy from the group, which really helped me pass the exam in the first attempt.
Thank you Asma and members of BeMRCOG who have helped me through the tough days and accomplish my dream.
I am very happy today after I have passed my MRCPI and MRCOG and I would like to share my experience with BeMRCOG because Dr Asma’s courses are one thing that has helped me in difficult times.
Earlier on I passed MRCPI in first attempt and I feel that I was lucky because I took part in BeMRCOG’s part 2 course also because of which I had all my basic knowledge in place with a very structured approach. From the part 2 course I learned how to approach a patient in a systematic manner and in an easy-to-remember sequence. I also got huge benefit from attending Clinical Governance workshop because that is also incorporated in MRCPI now.
For MRCOG oral assessment, I found BeMRCOG the most informative course that teaches you communication skills in detail. I attended live workshop with Asma that gave me my first idea about new format of the exam. I particularly enjoyed the Clinical Governance workshop because it was a scenario based learning which helped me to know how to apply clinical governance in my daily life.
The WhatsApp group practice was very useful and l felt that group was my family. Asma did big effort in mentoring and training us despite of her very busy schedule. I made many friends there who helped me to pass this difficult exam.
Dr Asma is a very honest person. l will always remember l subscribed to her course before l pass my part 2 exam. That time it was old style OSCE. The exam pattern changed and despite 2 years passed after that she gave me the new style course on my old subscription soon l passed my part 2 exam.
l appreciate your commitment Dr Asma. Thank you very much for your support.
My journey with BeMRCOG started in April 2017. It was the first group I joined. I didn’t know anything about how to prepare for part 3. I started going through e-tutorials and attended the online workshop. E-tutorials helped a lot as the fog started lifting. But I didn’t clear in May 2017, mostly because of my own lack of preparation and lack of understanding the exam.
After that failure, I wanted to quit ,it was at that time Dr Asma Naqi, the wonderful mentor encouraged me to continue. There were so many opportunities to improve our communication skills during group practice sessions, that slowly and gradually I overcame my hesitancy and started participating actively. The constructive feedback by Asma, the gentle nudges in right direction and constant encouragement helped a lot. I started enjoying the sessions and I also attended the clinical governance workshop, which showed us, how things work in UK and I got a scenario on consent in my exam ☺.
Thank you Asma for your constant guidance and help.
Hello All ,
This is Miss Tanuka Das Gupta (convocation yet to attend 😋).
Asma’s course was a gateway for me to enter the NHS system. She knows exactly where we ‘the overseas candidates’ lag behind. She not only looks into your knowledge but your overall performance in terms of reflexes and personality which is extremely important in part 3 MRCOG.
God bless BeMRCOG
‘The best teachers teach from the heart ,not from the book.’
To be able to pass this exam without ever having worked in UK is an achievement by itself and it could not have been possible without Dr Asma who guided me through it all.
It takes time to understand the MRCOG part 3 exam but once you get an idea ,it’s not a difficult exam at all.
Part 3 Be MRCOG tutorials explain everything regarding the exam from the domains to the confidentiality and consent. All the 14 modules are explained separately and thoroughly with examples ..
In my opinion BeMRCOG course is one of the best online course available in recent times. With daily WhatsApp group activities Dr Asma guided us at every step. Her teaching style is unique and can be beautifully explained by the following quote;
‘Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers.’
I highly recommend BeMRCOG tutorials which in my opinion is the first step in the right direction.
I feel privileged to be able to write a testimonial for this group which has supported me in such hard times. Today seems such a wonderful day with my dream of MRCOG accomplished.
After clearing my Part 2 in January 2018, and passing through the euphoria, I finally decided to sit for my part 3 in May 2018. However, when I started to prepare I had no clue of how to begin with this final part. I searched online and I came across this online course and its the only e-course I registered then. Perhaps it was the most wise step I took that time.
The two day workshop on 17th and 18th March was an eye opener. It was really helpful to get a clear understanding on what theexam is all about. Though quite exhausting, it was a learning experience I won’t forget for times to come. It was lovely being able to interact with such a wonderful mentor.
Then came the group practices where the learning continued on an all together different level. I also attended the clinical governance workshop. It was such a non-conventional and simplified approach to a subject which gives creeps to non UK candidates.
Unfortunately, in the exams in May, I tasted failure. I still remember the Debriefing Session after that..,and Asma saying that she could see that I have still not come out of it. I recollect her words today, ”To begin with, we have to first unlearn things, then only can we learn things in the correct way”. And within the next couple of days, I shed all my frustration and never looked back since then..
I went through all her e-tutorials word by word. Believe me, whatever is needed for this exam is embedded in them. Every time you read through them, you learn something very new and subtle. The next round of Group Practice started from the scratch. These were the real building blocks since they teach you things no other course tells you. Because it focusses on the attitude and mindset required to clear the exams. There is no other way of learning the concepts of leadership and teamwork better.
I tried to work in the directions given by Asma, and today with the degree in hand, everything seems worth it. Believe me, Asma is a wonderful Mentor. She will tell you on the face, without any sugar coating, where are your weaknesses. We just need to accept it and wipe off that weakness from our mindset and things become much simpler..
Finally , Passed MRCOG in my second attempt. As Asma says, there is a right time for everything. Thank you Asma for your immense contribution in my success. Also met some very interesting friends in the group , learning with whom made this experience much more enjoyable. May God bless you Asma for helping out people like us who were struggling to get things right.
A wonderful person, and an incredible mentor ,that’s what you are Asma.
I am Yin Yin Shwe from Myanmar. I cleared my Part 3 MRCOG in November 2018 in the very 1st attempt.
I joined BeMRCOG in July 2018. BeMRCOG course is the one and only online course I joined on the recommendation of my friend Ei Mon Han who passed in first attempt after attending this course.
I attended 2 days online workshop and the clinical governance workshop. From e-tutorials and workshops, I understood competency of ST5, patient safety and empathy; those 3 things were essential things to pass the exam.
Asma, you always guided us to have empathy and not to go beyond ST5 level in exam even if we work in reality at consultant level. Your voice still echoes in my ears. You not only guided me to pass the exam but also to apply everything I learnt in my daily work.
Thank you very much! Asma. You are a wonderful mentor, leader and motivator.
BEMRCOG has made my MRCOG dream possible in the very first attempt.
I am extremely happy to write this testimonial, never thought I would be doing it. I used to read others testimonial and pep up my self. Maybe today writing this I can help someone’s dream come true.
I joined BEMRCOG in June ‘ 18 and 4 months of being at this platform has transformed me as a person in all walks of life i.e. personal as well as professional. BeMRCOG is the only online course I have done but I took all varieties it offers; the e-course, the part 3 workshop, the clinical governance workshop and the group practice (twice).
Asma’s way of teaching is unique. Don’t expect spoon feeding. Though she is tough outside but very soft inside. She cares & knows about all her students. She gives very valuable critical feedback and it really depends on the person how he or she takes it. But that very feedback is the game changer. Because once you know your faults, loopholes and weaknesses, only then you know where and how to improve.
The e-tutorials are a storehouse of information. Everything you need for this exam, you’ll find it there. Each time you read you’ll find something new. The audio version of the tutorials made it easy for me to keep listening even on the go while whatever I was doing.
To top it all is the WhatsApp group practice. It was an amazing experience!! Though tough and gruelling schedule during work, it has enough of breathers in between. Daily activities help like presenting or giving feedbacks on separate domains improve your communication skills tremendously. With this daily practice, within a short span of time, I was able to incorporate crucial skills like 360 degree view situational awareness, so much so that It has become my reflex behaviour in day to day life.
This group activity introduced me to the idea of reflective practice which I was totally unaware of. There is no spoon feeding, on the contrary, Asma makes you work hard to look for your own pitfalls, so much so that It gets imprinted in your head and you don’t need to revise.
This is why I recommend joining this group practice because it helps you form the reflex behaviour which ultimately comes up naturally under the stress of the exam.
After joining this platform and experiencing a variety of learning experiences, I develop a strong trust for BeMRCOG tutorials and group practice that didn’t feel the need to join any other online course as it met all my needs.
This has been my second family and I have made many lovely friends. Most of all Asma who is a real mentor and true friend.
Thanks for coming into my life.
My MRCOG journey is over Alhumdulillah!
I passed my MRCOG Part 2 in January 2018 and part 3 in November same year in the very 1st attempt. One of the contributors in my success is Dr Asma Naqi. After part 2 I got lost as what to do and where to start. I booked for Dr Asma’s course in July on the recommendation of a friend who passed in first attempt herself and felt benefitted from this course.
I found the e-tutorials very helpful. The understanding of Clinical Governance and work systems in the UK became clear to me through these tutorials. I understood all the modules, the theme of the station and what is my level as ST 5. The tutorials included recorded stations showing how a good candidate should perform so it was also a great help. It provided for me a base and when the base is right you can’t stumble.
So I am very thankful to Dr Asma and the entire team of BeMRCOG for their help and support for reaching my goal and recommend this course.
I started preparing for part 2 MRCOG early this year in the month of February. It was a proud moment for me when I cleared part 2 in my first attempt . The real ordeal started when I got a slot to appear for part 3 at Delhi in November. I was totally lost. Just didn’t know how to go about. I was reading PIL and guidelines randomly. But after enrolling myself in the BeMRCOG e-course, group practice and attending Dr Asma’s workshop, I realised that my preparation must include a new dimension. She taught me where to start and where to end a consultation. And what should be done outside the station and with what mindset one should enter the station. I thank her for helping me in this journey of acquiring MRCOG.
I am extremely thankful to God that I have cleared MRCOG in first attempt.
I did my FCPS in 2014, thereafter I continued my service without any gap. I passed SLE and joined as an senior registrar in KSA, continued my service & study together for MRCOG, it was my dream I am grateful to God that finally I achieved it.
Dear Dr Asma,
Thank you very much for your support, help & encouragement. I have attended some e-courses but I found BEMRCOG course very useful. I started my preparation for MRCOG with Bemrog team lead by you Dr Asma Naqi, no doubt you are really great mentor, I got ideas of domain & modules from you. Really it was very beneficial with your detailed explanations and feedbacks. I have passed in first attempt. I am really grateful to you “A genius Dr. ASMA NAQI”.
I strongly recommend this course. My best wishes always remains with you & your team.
Thank you very much!
Beyond my dream with BeMRCOG
Hello, friends and BeMRCOG family!
I am Dr Wai Phyo from Myanmar. It gives me the immense pleasure to write a testimonial for BeMRCOG course because it will serve as evidence why I joined this platform and how this platform recreated me to become a confident candidate for MRCOG Part 3 exam. I joined this course after I found out that many non-UK based Candidates passed from this group, including one of my friend, Ei Mon Han. And I wished at that time one day I would write a testimonial on BeMRCOG website like many MRCOGs who passed the Part 3 MRCOG examination with the support of BeMRCOG course.
The question that usually arises after passing the Part 2 MRCOG examination is when to give Part 3 ? I personally prefer it be given immediately as the theoretical knowledge is still fresh. So I joined BeMRCOG in November 2017 right after my part 2 exam.
At the beginning of the journey, it was not easy for me who didn’t know what the meaning of domains, module, SBAR, signposting. However, after listening to e-tutorials from this course again and again, I started to realize that e-tutorials are the method of transferring knowledge and are necessary to undertake specific tasks. You know e-tutorials from this course are the building blocks of MRCOG. You have to listen and apply them again and again in your daily work. If not you will be in trouble with our Mentor Asma 😉.
Now I would take the opportunity to tell you about Asma. She is amazing, her voice is sweet, her knowledge is tremendous but if needed, she is very strict in discipline. She is my mentor, friend, elder sister and sometimes I feel like she is a mother of all of us. As being mentor, she encouraged and guided me to change my attitude, way of thinking and speaking. Initially, it was difficult to change my practice and behaviour like other well-knowledged candidates. She wanted us to behave like UK ST 5 trainees, to think as wide as possible. E tutorials can only be completed with Asma. Every single word from Asma is marvellous and useful to learn from her. The way of her teaching techniques is totally different from other online courses. She wanted me to learn the approaching and solving methods not only for exam but also for the rest of my life.
Difficult, right? But trust me you won’t even know when your attitude, behaviour and knowledge started to change little by little, day by day while you are on the BeMRCOG platform. Eventually, all these enhancements will be helpful in your exam. Honestly, I am obsessed with learning in BeMRCOG group activity.
Asma added me in WhatsApp group after I joined BeMRCOG which was 10 months before the exam. So I got chances to learn from other excellent Candidates. And I was lucky enough to be a co- Moderator in the group at one point. That was a huge experience for me and made me popular in the group 😊😊. I learnt from the good and the mistakes from friends and Asma is always ready to correct our mistakes. Her teaching technique is not a spoon feeding technique. She encourages ( sometimes forced us 😉😉) us to identify our needs by ourselves while she was there to support and clarify further concepts. We made small groups do different tasks as modules, competencies, flash cards, team-working, leadership skill and feedback. As time passed, we were bonded with each other and this group became my second family. You know WhatsApp group activity was the most I liked but without Asma and e tutorials, that group will be not be completed.
I also attended two days Online workshop. This was a live session and completely different from any other workshops. Asma’s individual feedback is the essence of this course. After that workshop, I realized that how to perform on the day of the exam.
Honestly, I had no idea how to pass this hard and mysterious exam in very first attempt. That was beyond my dreams. But now you can see I fulfilled my journey with the guidance of Asma and BeMRCOG team. If I can do it, you can also do it. Only you need to follow BeMRCOG instructions.
Thank you, Asma and your team for letting me in this wonderful family. I wish I can see and greet you in person.
Dr Wai Phyo
I met Dr Asma on the journey of MRCOG when I was struggling to pass part 2. I missed part 2 three times by 1-2 marks. My sister Dr Nargis who was Dr Asma ’s student too advised me to join Asma for part 2 as she gives you an orientation on how to study according to exam requirements… and that was it! I cracked part 2 in the immediate next go after Asma’s guidance. Therefore, immediately on the day of the part 2 result, I joined the e-tutorials as once again advised by my dear sister who was Asma’s student… It was something that immediately made the base strong…it gave me a structure of how to go about part 3 preparation as I was totally disoriented. The clinical governance workshop and the 2-day workshop for the part 3 was an icing on the cake to the e tutorials… that helped me understand things like never before.. along with that it also helped me pass MRCPI part 2 in one go simultaneously while preparing for MRCOG Part 3… Asma continuously kept on motivating me with her messages..
And here I am, passed part 3 with only 2 months of preparation and in the 1st attempt …but was confident in my performance because Asma’s voice in e-tutorials kept echoing in my ears. So to be MRCOG, you have to join BeMRCOG.. without which I think the journey of MRCOG is incomplete… Once again thank you to Dr Asma and the entire team of BeMRCOG for helping a dream turn into reality…😊
Hello my friends …
This is to share my experience of MRCOG part 3 exam for all those who are preparing for it. Believe me as Asma rightly says this is an easy exam, you just need to find the key points in each module and that’s it, you got it .
I attended courses before I joined BeMRCOG course and group practice. There I did a few cases, but still I never got an idea of the pattern of work and exam in UK. I was completely lost just 2 months before exams , when one of my friends recommended Asma’s courses.
And when I joined this course, I realized where I was wrong and what I needed to improve. It felt like a teacher with a stick observing all the students silently. I was a bit shy and despite of having gone through all her e-tutorials, I never spoke up in the group practice thinking I would go wrong. Then one day I got a personal message from her asking me to share my problems. I just opened up and shared the issues I was facing. I felt extremely better after having that conversation. Each and every one of us is capable of doing it but there are certain hindrances in life that comes in our way and stop us from improving. It felt like I have an elder sister with whom I can share all my feelings.
She corrected me and she again corrected me, over and over again until I knew what actually was wrong with me. There are a very few teachers who do that; trying to bring out the reason and find a solution when a student is not performing. And I say this proudly to all of you that I was one among those from BeMRCOG, who have passed this exam in first attempt with just 3 weeks preparation .
So dear friends get yourself completely involved for each and every word that comes from her mouth, there is a lot of meaning in it. I am sure you also can do it with a good mentor like her. Flash cards helped me a lot, in the exam I was able to identify the module correctly and talk about it.
Just be yourself, identify your pitfalls and improve on it, this is what you will get to know here at BeMRCOG. Asma in her last talk said, ‘Deal with 14 stations as they are your day to day patients’. and that’ s all I remember before I entered each station.
I am extremely thankful to Allah who has given me an ooportunity to write testimonial for BeMRCOG. There was a time when I used to read testimonials from other students and now writing mine after passing Part 3 in first attempt.
When I cleared part 2 exam, I was totally blank regarding part 3 requirements being a non-UK based candidate. I skipped the immediate exam due to personal commitments, so decided to join some online course meanwhile. Thankfully I chose BeMRCOG.
This course provides you with module-wise e-tutorials which you can listen to at your convenience. Right from the beginning, I got the idea what the exam is about; the five domains and module wise preparation. This strong foundation helped me build further blocks over it. I always took scenario according to the module and honestly speaking Asma is the only person who makes this strong base.
During all my practice Asma’s advice kept on echoing in my mind regarding any scenario which made things easier for me. She always tried to build in us all the qualities which are expected of us during the exam as we are competing with UK candidates. There is no spoon feeding but she will train you in a way that you will unknowingly develop the leadership skills and holistic approach.
BeMRCOG made my dream come true. It’s a tough path but the fruit is beautiful.
Dear Dr Asma,
Thank you very much for your support, help and continuous encouragement. I have attended with you the e-course, group practice and online workshop. Really it was very beneficial with your detailed explanations and feedbacks. I have passed in first attempt with 80% score. I strongly recommend this course and here is my experience with BeMRCOG:
When I passed MRCOG Part 2 in January 2018 I felt totally lost. I started my baby steps with BeMRCOG. I was scared to share my thoughts and talk in the group, so Asma contacted me privately and encouraged me to start speaking.
In the live workshop, she insisted to turn on cameras and I wasn’t understanding why. Now I know that she wants to train us on facial expressions and body language during communications with the patients and colleagues. Communication can be a critical step to failure if you are not trained well on communications.
When you will listen to her recordings in the e-course and group practice, you will know what I mean. When previously I used to read reviews from other people, I used to wonder how they did it. Now I know how, just practice and work on your foundation. Of course I took a lot of other courses which were live and online, but Asma ‘s course was the first step to learn how to go about everything and it laid the right foundation to make the further journey easy.
Thank you very much!
I feel extremely thankful to Allah that today I am writing this testimonial as I always used to idealize those who wrote previous testimonials. Today I will write about my quest towards MRCOG and how I was lucky enough to have joined BEMRCOG which helped me achieve my dream degree.
I did FCPS in Obstetric and Gynaecology in May 2017 but still my journey was not over because since the start of my career I was enthusiastic about being an MRCOG. After passing MRCOG part 2 in September 2017, my journey to the final step began.
This was the start of the next phase where I found myself lost. I tried to gather information from various sources, started the OSCE books and PILS and had an attempt of part 3 in May 2018. But was not successful. Reason was that I didn’t understand the exam.
In that phase of stress and depression I found BeMRCOG. And all of a sudden, it felt like it lighted a candle in a dark corridor and I saw the exam from a completely different perspective.
Dr Asma is a brilliant mentor she inculcated the UK practice into us by giving tasks that generated reflective practice. Her style of teaching is so innovative and excellent that I started to apply her teachings in my daily life.
Her teaching of 14 modules and the importance to understand them was amazing. Her e-tutorials are too good and comprehensive. She took us through practice and made things clear in how to tackle all sorts of different scenarios.
I followed her advise through out and scored 86% marks in OSCE which was a moment of immense happiness for me. I will always be thankful to her for the help and support in making me reach my dream destination. May Allah bless her always.
Thank you so much my mentor!
Dr Rabia Ali Khan
I am Devi Pushparaj from India. I cleared my part 3 MRCOG in September 2018. It was one of the most wonderful moments of my life. I take this opportunity to share my experience through this tough journey with a pleasant and priceless ending.
I gave my part 3 in November 2017 and was not successful. I didn’t have the proper guidance or understanding regarding the exam at that time. It was during the preparation of my second attempt did I come to know about BeMRCOG and Dr Asma. Only then did I get a clear picture of the exam and how to prepare for it. Her e-tutorials were of immense help. The WhatsApp group was a boon I would say. It served as a platform to come out of my inhibitions, practice stations, give feedbacks, learns from own mistakes and others as well, to know in detail about each module and the various themes and also to make good friends. I found a very structured way of approaching the part 3 exam through this course.
Workshop for part 3 preparation is quite different from the routine in a way you learn strategies to tackle any station not just the ones under discussion.
Dr Asma is a wonderful person who connects personally with each and every member of the BeMRCOG family. She is a great mentor and loves to help her family members achieve their goals. I can’t thank her enough for the help and guidance she has bestowed.
So my dear friends, with the right course, guidance and good amount of structured practice with your study buddy, MRCOG is well within our reach, especially for overseas candidates.
All the best.
It gives me immense pleasure to write a testimonial for BeMRCOG part 3 course. The aim is to help you understand about this platform and how you can gain the maximum benefit from this which will ease your journey of MRCOG like it did for me.
There are many online courses available for Part 3. I did not take any other than BeMRCOG.
BeMRCOG part 3 course comprises of different components which are designed by Dr Asma Naqi especially keeping in need for overseas candidates. Part 3 requires certain skills, competencies & attitudes which need time to develop. Being on this course is a simulated distant learning program which is very structured under her direct supervision. I was lucky to be on this platform since my part 2 exam preparation, which provided me enough time to develop subconscious attitudes & behaviours required for this exam.
Now I’ll write about the different components of this and how it helped me to get through this exam.
E-Tutorials: This is the basic component of this course. The course subscription is one year (unlike other courses) which is enough time to prepare for the exam.
It starts from very basics covering all the 14 modules, domains & consultation model in a very structured way. It’s important to follow them in a sequence to make sense. It’s audio-visual and can be accessed at the comfort of your home at a time suitable to you.
It is a comprehensive guide but it’s important to do the hard work yourself. I made my notes & templates with the help of these tutorials alongside other books for each module.
It has a very important section on clinical governance which covers almost all the points needed for this exam. (Optionally, you can attend Clinical Governance online workshop from beMRCOG as well to help you understand the UK systems. I attended this workshop during my part 2 preparation).
Sample stations are helpful to know how to perform in a particular module. It helped me pick up appropriate words, sentences & tone of voice.
If you follow the e-tutorials systematically, they are enough to understand all the required components of this exam. You do need to look into other study resources as well, but it provides you with a path & guidance which you can follow as suitable to your own needs. The rest is your own efforts and practise 🙂
2-days Live Workshop:
This is one of the essential components of the course covering all 14 modules.
It simulates the real exam situation with 2 minutes reading time & 10 minutes of performance.
It requires you to go through the e-tutorials at-least once to get the maximum benefit.
You get to attend a high-quality workshop interacting with candidates from all over the world. Asma’s valuable individual feedback is the essence of this workshop. You might be disheartened, but honest & realistic feedback is very important if you want to be successful and improve yourself. I learned a lot from other candidates’ performances and their feedbacks as well.
This is one of my personal favourite component of this course which I enjoyed the most (even though my own performance was pathetic 😉
WhatsApp Study Group:
It was one of the complementary/voluntary components of the course when I subscribed (now there is some change in policy to assure the quality of this practice). It is a great platform for group practice. It is moderated in a very structured way of practising which is based on e-tutorials and modules. It’s a great way to interact with others and learn from each other. Even though I could not be very active but being in the group clarified a lot of concepts like modules, themes, competencies, flash cards, team-working, leadership skills, choice of words, appropriate sentences and situational awareness (to name a few). I used to listen to each and every audio which let me keep in touch with the exam preparation even on tougher days. All the learning is group effort which is helpful to everyone but participating in the group helps your own learning the most. Tasks are allocated to different people & each task has a purpose behind it.
I am aware that there are many other active groups which let you do group effort but the difference in BeMRCOG WhatsApp part 3 study group is Dr Asma’s unique moderation, strict discipline, quality assurance and her valuable detailed feedbacks which you will not find anywhere else.
This course is CPD accredited which are internationally recognised
You have direct access to your mentor 24/7 who is just a text away.
Helpdesk is very efficient in solving the queries. I can say it very confidently as I have been a subscriber for more than two years
There is also an option of 1-1 sessions. I did not take any.
My experience with BeMRCOG family has been great. I wish and hope to see it expand more.
Dr Rubab Khalid
Hello, I am Meenu from India. I passed the part 2 exam in Jan 2018. I began my preparation for Part 3 exam with a lot of negative comments that as a non-UK based candidate, it is not possible to pass Part 3 exam in the first attempt. Adding to that I did not have a regular study partner which everyone kept saying is a must for this exam.
There is a wealth of information and reading material on the internet and social groups for this exam. Having collected them, I was only left more intimidated and confused by the sheer volume and complexity of it all. I was totally losing the plot in preparation. That was when I discovered BeMRCOG and enrolled on the course.
After my introductory session with Asma and going through her tutorials on the website, I realised that what is actually required is, in fact, an understanding of the needs of the exam first and then to understand each core module next. And there are just 14 of them, which is an achievable target. And Asma’s tutorials explain them so nicely.
I joined the group practice pretty late. But within the short span of time, I was able to make a lot of friends. And Asma’s style is unique. Nothing is spoon-fed. Asma will show the right way to prepare. It’s up to each individual to do the actual preparation. And she hammered in habits and thought processes that can make or break the exam.
Communication tools, Feedback, patient safety, teamwork and leadership all unknowingly became a part of my daily routine. The 2-day workshop was hectic. But Asma is so observant and picks up on every word you utter and the feedback was invaluable. This workshop is not the regular circuit practice like you find in other courses. It is a completely different experience and individual attention is paid to each person with the focus again on the module as a whole and not just the task at hand.
This course helped me fill up my gaps in understanding UK practice. Asma also made tough subjects for non-UK candidates like Clinical governance more easy to understand by giving practical examples. Her workshop gave a lot of clarity on complex topics like consent, confidentiality, work-place behaviour, risk management. I was able to handle these issues in the exam confidently because of this course.
I finally stand here having achieved my dream of “becoming” MRCOG. And a big, big thanks to Asma and BeMRCOG team for helping me live this dream. All I would like to say is that it is possible to pass this exam in the first attempt. Thank you, Asma for showing the way.
I dreamt of passing MRCOG some 3 yrs ago, but very soon met the reality check when I failed my first attempt for part 2. I realised it requires more hard work than I expected.
Then I came to know about Dr. Asma’s workshop through some friends which I found very motivating and I subscribed her online course for part 2. I made my own notes as per her guidance but I failed again. This was the time when I was really upset. Zillions of thanks to Dr Asma that she remained in contact with me in this time of despair. She re-motivated me and I restarted. This time she analyzed my notes critically and guided me how to modify them. She helped me throughout this period in making algorithms of y notes.
When I completed my notes, we started revision and she guided me how to do revisions of the topics in an effective way. Believe me, these algorithms making was the most fruitful thing for me, because it not only made my topics short and to the point, but also helped me during revisions. Dr Asma remained in touch throughout the months of my preparation. As far as I know she is the only mentor of her kind, who will give her advices and direction until you pass exam.
I found her very strict and critical in giving comments about my preparations, so much so, that sometimes I felt reluctant of reporting her back about my progress. However, today I feel that this strict check really helped me pass this difficult exam.
I liked her method of revisions because she sets the standards of hard work too high that you are compelled to burn midnight oil. Another good thing about her is that she gives individual attention to all the candidates according to his or her particular progress towards exam preparation.
The day I received my result, I prayed a lot for Dr. Asma because it was not possible for me to accomplish this success without her stewardship. Now I’m heading towards part 3 with full trust in her team and I am sure that with their help I can fulfil my dream, InshaAllah.
Hi I am Sirisha. Happy to share with you that I passed MRCOG part 3 examination. It took me 3 attempts. 1st attempt I was unprepared but I did put every possible effort in my 2nd attempt but still couldn’t perform well.
Then I joined BeMRCOG. In the debriefing session, I told Asma that I worked very hard but still failed. She said that I didn’t understand the exam. I felt weird on this feedback as I lost with only 2 scores. But still I wanted to try in the new way, as my way of preparation obviously did not work.
There onwards, I strictly followed Asma’s tutorials, participated in group study, took criticism positively and subsequently got good score this time.
BeMRCOG is a long, but complete course. Asma facilitates learning by assigning tasks. The preparation style was all new to me. Everything that happens in the practice group is exam-oriented. Team work, leadership, feedback, reflection and UK system became a part of my routine practice. Each day I was preparing for the exam even while going through a regular day. Additionally, I was practicing as many stations as possible.
On the day of exam, I was very stressed. I had palpitations night before and couldn’t sleep. I still performed well, because I had already developed a sort of automatic reflex that met exam standards.
There are many courses available for MRCOG Part 3 preparation. Every course is useful. but I benefited more from BeMRCOG. Many thanks to Asma. I will remember her whenever I see ‘MRCOG’ beside my name.
2 years ago, when I started into my journey of MRCOG, it was all hazy and full of uncertainties. The only solution in front me was to take it as a challenge and keep going towards the destination.
My journey with BeMRCOG started when I came across a workshop on Clinical Governance. It turned out to be the first ray of light to show me path in my struggle, opening new doors and giving me an insight into the uk systems and what the exam revolves around. With the passing time, my relationship with BeMRCOG family grew stronger. I passed part 2 and soon after the euphoria was gone, I started to feel palpitations thinking about part 3. I felt it was unachievable and so far off for me.
I was confused between many courses and Books. Finally I reached out to Asma once again for guidance and advise; and today I can say with confidence that joining this online course for part 3 was the best decision I made at that time.
BeMRCOG course formed the strong foundation to buid on further. We started off with small and general tasks that were not only achievable but helped me to overcome my fear of expressing myself in front of other people. As we progressed in practice, I noticed refinement in my performance day by day. Commitment and discipline were the first lessons we learnt. It was such a beautiful combination of group activity and independent practice. There were times we worked as a part of a team, and at other times we got leadership roles. I felt myself growing in communication ,confidence and expression.
And today. I am very happy to pass part 3 in the first attempt. BeMRCOG was not only a base to achieve success in MRCOG, but it also turned out to be a journey of self-discovery. I don’t recall Asma teaching us medical knowledge available in books and guidelines, instead she encouraged us to think logically, come up with new ideas and solutions and be self-sufficient. By grooming this ability in us, she prepared us to deal with any situation.
Finally, BeMRCOG not only taught me how to pass an exam, but also how to be a better human and be more useful, sensitive towards others, compassionate and honest clinician in my day to day life.
I am so proud to be a part of BeMRCOG family. Thank you and Best wishes.
Today I ‘ll take the opportunity to say thanks to Dr Asma Naqi and BeMRCOG team after passing MRCOG .
When I started this journey it was not easy and I did not have idea how to start. But after going through e-tutorials and with Asma’s guidance my concepts totally changed. The way she guides and gives feedback is amazing that no one else does really. I never looked at MRCOG in terms of themes, flash cards and much more hard work. She does not spoon-feed, instead she works to modify the way you think, which eventually helps you to reach your goal.
I was in the WhatsApp group, but I didn’t participate actively due to busy routines. Also, in the beginning I didn’t have much idea of how to practice, but with the time when I heard recordings of friends in the group and Asma’s feedback on each task individually trust me it totally changed my concept of the exam and I started getting things clear in my mind.
It’s a marvellous platform and Asma as a mentor and as a human is an excellent person in herself . The course subscription is for 1 year that it gives to chance for a long time to go through tutorials as well as group activities. There is no burden to pay again and again, and most people do pass during this time period. So, it very cost effective with a one-off fee for so much to get.
I will say thanks again to Asma Naqi, her wonderful team that is always eager to help whenever u ask them.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Asma and her team for the expert guidance.
How much I wish that I knew about BeMRCOG earlier. Every word from Asma is a golden word and the most practical advice not only for the exam but also for so many lessons in day to day life. I still remember when I told her after joining BeMRCOG that despite of practising very hard in my first attempt, I failed. She told me that what you practise (the quality) matters, not how much (the quantity) you practice….and that was it! From that point onwards, following her tutorials and being involved in the WhatsApp group made me confident for the exam and I cleared it!
Asma also makes sure she bring behavioural changes towards our real life patients which is not only helpful for exam, but teaches us the correct ethos. My main tip from my experience with BeMRCOG would be to follow each and every advice seriously, and listen all the tutorials carefully, they would help to prepare you very well for the exam. The live workshop is an added bonus!!
Once again, thanks a lot to the whole team and I wish you keep helping everyone to achieve their dreams.
Thank you very much for helping me to get through this different exam, Part 3, in March 2018.
The beauty of this course is the continuity and persistence that keep us ‘on’ in OSCE mode through out day and night. E-tutorials along with WhatsApp group practice changed my entire concept of learning. And then we proceeded to live workshop. My performance in the workshop was not good and Asma marked me ‘fail’…It was a difficult day for me. But she picked the problem and I remember her words ‘If you would’ve read the scenario and utilized the 2 minutes properly, you would have done very well’. From that time onwards, I stopped everything and started to focus on utilizing the 2 minutes for as many stations as I could found.
The aim of sharing this incidence is that correct guidance is very important for this exam. Someone should guide you , interrupt you , appreciate you – correctly throughout.
For Asma , as an educator your title (mentor) justifies all aspects of education. Initially it was difficult for me to cope up with the intense group practice, where you were playing a very strong leadership role behind the scenes. I again express my sincere thanks and best regards for all team, BMRCOG.
Today my dream came true. Being an MRCOG is indeed the greatest achievement, best feeling and the most proud moment so far in my life!!!! It was never possible without Dr. Asma’s valuable guidance and the whole BeMRCOG family.
I booked this course half-heartedly and never took it seriously, until I badly crashed in the first attempt of MRCOG Part 3. I was heart-broken and shattered as it was my first ever failure in life. Then we had a debriefing with Dr. Asma. It was very traumatic for that time. But later on, I started to think over and over about Asma’s feedback and advice and I still remember her words, “First you have to unlearn the wrong things and then learn what’s actually required”. I thought over it again and again, and I did a very critical analysis of myself after the debriefing and then started probing what’s missing and jotted down all my shortcomings.
After coming out from that traumatic event, I started learning all over again, afresh with a new view to the modules in e-tutorials from a different perspective as guided by Asma. Believe me she has very nicely compiled/organized the whole vast syllabus in a nut shell . I must say that it’s a hidden treasure, every time you read it you will get to learn newer things.
Asma possesses a very unique and full of energy style of teaching, it enables you to discover your own hidden potentials and discourages blind copying others. If you follow her course seriously, with one year subscription and instructions you un knowingly develop skills and techniques to successfully pass the exam.
A complimentary Whatsapp group created by Asma helped me a lot, as she not only gives different tasks in the group but pay individual attention to everyone in the group by giving her valuable feedback which are the pearls of wisdom. Though some members in the group thought that the exercise given in the group was a waste of time, but trust me her valuable advice really helped me in rectifying my mistakes, as well as, boosting the confidence in myself – I knew clearly what I did good and what are the areas that need more practice. I have never seen such an enthusiastic mentor in organizing specialized activity in such a large group. Whatever task was given had a purpose behind it, therefore, I suggest all the members to actively participate in the group practice tasks. This is indeed a great opportunity to start believing in yourself , and that is what exactly is required for this exam.
Although, I took only one session of 1-1 practice with Asma, but that one hour sitting really helped me a lot in rectifying how to cover all domains in an effective and efficient manner and uncover my hidden potential.
I will forever be very grateful to Asma, for being so caring, dedicated and concerned about our preparation; She’s really a gem of person.
As a closing note, I would like to add that Asma is as strict as a teacher should be, which I realize has helped me to stay on track, practice in right direction and avoid unnecessary reading; but at the same time she is super kind like a mother. God bless you always!
I am extremely grateful to be able to write this testimonial for BeMRCOG as that means I was able to successfully clear my Part 3 MRCOG in May 2018. I did my training in the Middle East and I am working in the same hospital currently. So, for me, to decide to do the MRCOG exams was not an easy choice being a non-UK candidate. But that did not stop me from clearing all 3 parts of the exam in the first attempt. And that is because I had the right guidance.
I joined BeMRCOG in Nov 2017 partly because it’s an online platform that allowed me to be in the comfort of my home, partly because the material was open for 1 year which is not provided by any other course, and partly because of extremely good reviews unanimously given by everybody about Dr Asma Naqi and this course. I realize now that this was most pivotal and important decision I made that not only helped me clear the clinical exam in a single shot, but also become a better doctor and a better person. I was successful without having to attend any other course or UK circuit practice.
Let me take this chance to thank:
Dr Asma Naqi-
for being a mentor, guide, friend, role model, for being the brains behind the most effective practice program; that helped a stranger shy introvert like me, open up and find the strength to speak freely and without fear, for all the out of hours unofficial sessions of encouragement and for always just being a phone call or text message away, for meeting me in person before the exam that helped with my stress management.
The team of BeMRCOG-
for an running excellent website, for always being readily available when needed and for running all the online meetings smoothly and with minimal glitches… You guys are amazing.
My BeMRCOG WhatsApp group-
Dr Asma added me to this group when I joined in Nov 2017, and I didn’t know that these people would become my lifeline. We have shared all our joys, miseries, faults, and excellence with each other, forming a bond like no other. I owe my success to the time spent in the activities of this group. They helped me realize my potentials and my mistakes.
BeMRCOG helped me understand what was needed in the part 3 exam and provided the guiding light needed for me to pass the exam. During the 6 months that I was part of this family, I developed subtle changes to my practice and behaviour that I didn’t even realize that I had picked up. Even though I didn’t notice it, the examiners must have noticed this in the exam and this was enough for me to pass.
Once again, forever grateful to Dr Asma and this course. May the Almighty shower his choicest blessings on BeMRCOG.
Dr Fathima Minisha
I passed MRCOG part 2 exam in January 2018…..Words are powerless to express my gratitude for Dr Asma …She has helped me tremendously…I highly recommend BeMRCOG tutorials ….MRCOG is no doubt a tricky exam but with the right guidance it can be achieved .
A good teacher is like a candle…it consumes itself to light the way for others
Thank you Dr Asma …best wishes always 😊
I passed MRCOG part 2 exam in Jan 2018. I cannot express my gratitude for Dr. Asma Naqi in words. Being non UK candidate I didn’t know many basic things about practice in UK. Previous failed attempt further added to my frustration.
Dr. Asma methodically dissected my weak points and guided me in the right direction. She specifically instructed how to make notes, corrected them multiple times till she felt satisfied. I think that exercise made all the difference in the end.
She was there at each step. When we felt low she had the kind encouraging words, but the strict ones if necessary too. I will be forever grateful.
I wish to thank the whole BeMRCOG team for making it possible.
Here is my story.
MRCOG Part 2 is a tough exam because it not only tests your knowledge, but also its clinical application.
As I have no experience of working in the UK, so naturally my knowledge was limited to books or colleagues. So when I was preparing for this exam I always felt that I need some guidance regarding UK systems.
During my search, I came across BeMRCOG and attended a 3 days workshop conducted by BeMRCOG. I was surprised to discover that the only change I needed was the pattern of study itself. Then, I subscribed for the part 2 e-course. I was expecting like other courses to get some ready to eat all cooked stuff, but Dr Asma Naqi encouraged me to do a structured study by going through modules and making my own notes.
Trust me once I made my own notes , all confusion started settling and my concepts became strong enough that Alhamdulilah I cleared my written exam right away.
I am grateful to Dr Asma for her guidance and support and her Help desk team too. I would recommend BeMRCOG e-course and live workshops to all who want to clear this exam so you can achieve your dreams like I did.
Dr Shazia Tariq
I am Dr Ei Mon Han from Mandalay, Myanmar and I am working as specialist register in my local hospital.
I cleared my MRCOG part 2 exam in September 2016. When I started to prepare for my Part 3 exam, it was exactly 6 month before the exam. I started my preparation with uncertinity and difficulties, because I couldn’t attend any RCOG courses due to my personal limitations. So, I googled available online courses, and discovered the Clinical Governance (CG) Workshop run by BeMRCOG.
It captured my interest as we are from non-UK region and lack knowledge of UK systems, which is a huge barrier to understand exam requirements. It was also my first time experience to an online course and to be honest, I was not sure in the beginning of the course, however, received warm greetings and great support from Gary and the helpdesk team and I felt more comfortable.
What I want to point out here is the way Dr Asma teaches different aspects and issue of CG. She made us learn the UK system based on the problem solving and case approach. She also points out the exam approach of CG issue. Time Punctuality is the another point what I admired very much. Although one day course was finished, she allowed access to online tutorials and materials of CG and clarified our queries. That one day course is invaluable for non-UK based trainees, especially for me.
Then, I decided to attend Part 3 clinical course which I found very different to other online courses. Different modules and study group formed an invaluable support for my preparation of Part 3 exam. Here, Dr Asma used very unique style of teaching. She never teaches in spoon feeding manner, instead she helps us to develop our own style of learning and problem solving. In addition to that she always try to fill the gap of everyone individually to meet their needs. For me, as I have a problem with fluency in English language, she continuously encouraged me to speak, record and put up in study group where she gave individual feedback to each and everyone.
Another problem which I faced during exam and found difficulty with is that 2 min is very limited for me to read question and make idea before entering the exam room. When I ask Dr Asma how to overcome this problem, she gave me the answer to clarify module and theme of the question. I used that tip in each and every station in the exam room.
Like everyone else, I also thought that MRCOG is very difficult. However, BeMRCOG Course made my study smooth and made my dream come through by helping me pass in the FIRST ATTEMPT and without any courses in UK or at RCOG.
Thank you Dr Asma and your team for this wonderful experience!
Alhamdolillah by the grace of Allah, I have accomplished this journey that seemed impossible for me. Some people learn quickly and some late .. I was from 2nd group but important thing is to not quit and keep it up. Each word that is taught here counts, I have gathered pearls from this course that were taught no where else.
I strongly believe if I can do it, each and everyone of you can do it !
Asma knows I wasn’t able to even talk in the beginning, but continued hard work and practise what is taught to you as many times as you can, especially with the keys you are making. I did as Nargis did … little more push … Insha’Allah that day will be soon there for you too.. thanks
I am Dr Ameena Shahbazker, from Pakistan, also working and practising in Pakistan. So, MRCOG was difficult to understand initially because our practise here is quite different from what we are expected for this exam .
It took a lot of hardwork , perseverance and patience , but nothing is impossible .
Dr Asma Naqi and her course were with me since day one; motivating , inspiring , guiding , and cultivating hard work in me .
I have learnt that there is no short cut for hard work . Asma cultivated hard work ,structured thinking , and the essence of a consultation in me. She was always there despite of her very busy routine. She made me feet that we were in her thoughts always. She is a great mentor. Despite of all our efforts to be spoon fed, she never gave up on us. The best thing about this exam and Asma’s mentoring is that I have come out to be a changed better person and a better doctor for my patients. I am really grateful for that !
So don’t just study for the sake of exam , apply it in your daily life and be MRCOG ! Every day!
To get the most out of her course, read all her tutorials and listen to them. You may not understand anything at first but believe me as you practise and then refer back to each tutorial again and again, you will feel that the clouds are disappearing and the sun is shinning bright in the sky. You will be able to see everything so clearly then, just as what is expected out of you in this exam . Asma has left no stone upturned in her course , it’s all whatever is required is all there.
I would really suggest everyone that after practising every module, just go back and listen to her audios and read her tutorial, every time . Yes EVERY TIME! That’s what has worked for me , and every time I picked up some thing new.
Make your own notes flashcards and practise, practise, practise in your clinics , in your home , everywhere.
Inculcate the habit of justifying using evidence for every thing you are saying , and doing , be it a viva or a patient station . Remember to tell WHY? That’s the key !
Best of luck!
Greeting from Myanmar!
I was very surprised that I cleared MRCOG part 3 in FIRST attempt. This could not be done without your guidance and support. I really appreciate the way you teach, the whole systematic approach and your team. You helped us to develop self-learning and own style of solving the problem. When I was sitting in the exam room and facing the problem, I thought of you and used the tips you gave us.
Thank you so much my great mentor. If I get chance to come to UK, I will definitely come and greet you Asma.
I passed MRCOG part 2 in September 2017 from India and November 2017 was my 1st “attempt” for part 3.
I am using the word “Attempt” because I went through several problems in my family and I heard that it was not possible to pass part 3 in one attempt by overseas candidates.
I subscribed BEMRCOG because I was not able to get seat in any other course in the UK before the exam. But the preparatory workshop simply changed my mind. I learned the orientation, choice of words and the non verbal language.
The 2 day workshop was hectic but it was worthy in all aspects. The constructive criticism was really helpful. One station was really very much helpful in actual exam was “explanation of post mortem Examination”. I simply repeated the words said by Dr Asma in the practice.
Actually it was only after the course, I decided to go for “exam”, rather than the “attempt”. And I passed the exam in 1st attempt.
I really have no words to express my gratitude for BeMRCOG.
I would like thank Dr. Asma Naqi for her unique style of teaching during attending my 3 days webinar course for MRCOG part 2 that helped me pass the exam. I recently attended MRCOG part 3 live online workshop.
It was an awesome experience which helped me a lot to understand my deficiencies & how to overcome them.
I strongly recommend this course for those who are struggling for MRCOG.
I am Dr Humera Mumtaz working in Saudi Arabia and passed my MRCOG part 2 in sept 2017.
Passing this exam as a non-U.K based doctor wouldn’t have been possible without support and guidance from Dr, Asma Naqi and the BeMRCOG Team.
Her courses helped me a lot in understanding the UK health system and the vital role of clinical Governance principles in it. She has a unique way of mentoring and her systematic approach taught me the right way to tackle the exam questions. She possesses the art of making you see things beyond the surface and through the depth.
Her team is also very efficient and supportive.
I highly recommend her courses to all those struggling to pass MRCOG .
Familiarise yourself with the latest technology and internet (very important). Almost all of us have Smartphones & Tablets these days. Just explore their positive potentials. It’s always worth investing in latest gadgets and data plans. This is the ONLY way to remain updated in knowledge, because things change very rapidly and its our own responsibility to keep up with the pace. No one else can do it all for us.
• Understand the exam well. Go through the Part 2 section on RCOG website thoroughly, especially the modules and know what you are expected to be asked in the exam. Understand it’s a UK-based exam and you need to prepare according to their standards.
• Gather UPDATED essential reading material and ORGANIZE it in a way that it’s accessible to you whenever required. It may require some online subscriptions. It’s better to spend some money rather than looking for free material.
• Allocate adequate study time. It depends on your own personal & professional circumstances and keeping some extra time for unforeseen situations.
Next comes the courses… a BIG question
There are many available and honestly I have attended a variety of courses. Each and every course has its own agendas and focuses. No course can guarantee success. You are free to make your choice but choose according to your personal needs. By the end of the day, you will have to do the hard-work.
What you need for success in this exam is deep understanding of Ob/Gyn, continuous hard work and serious commitment. It all comes from inside and self-motivation. Success is the product of all what you have been in your professional & personal life for many years.
As far as my own personal experience, WE are already on one of the BEST online courses with the best mentor Dr. Asma Naqi here at BeMRCOG.
WHY DO I GRADE IT AS THE BEST COURSE?
1. It provides you EVERYTHING you need all in one place (study material, road map, guidance, continuous professional and personal support).
2. The course is according to the RCOG curriculum and modules.
3. CPD accredited (I used these credits for my Saudi license).
4. Audiovisual tutorials and ease of access anytime anywhere (I used to listen to these tutorials while doing house chores ;), ***a big plus point to add for time management).
5. You always have direct access to your mentor, all you need is to text Asma and discuss whatever you wish, study related or even personal stuff.
6. This course helps to develop your thought process & deep understanding of the subject which is the essence of this exam
7. It is conducted by a mentor who is working in the UK and has worked outside UK, therefore understands the needs of international students. Who else can guide you better about the systems in the UK? (Main point for overseas candidates like myself).
8. Even if you are unsuccessful, there is another unique feature of BeMRCOG – The Debriefing Session, which no other courses offer. No one gets back to you and check how are you coping with the failure and what needs to be done to improve future outcome.
(Here I would like to share my personal experience. When I failed my second attempt, I was very disappointed. Every other course was celebrating the success and no one even bothered to think about the unsuccessful candidates. But it was Asma who called in a debriefing meeting, free of cost and provided valuable support which was the most needed thing at that difficult time. But it’s important that you don’t blame anyone & accept the responsibility of your failure. Be receptive to identify your deficiency, take criticism and be willing to modify your approach accordingly to avoid repeated failure.)
9. “Doctors in Difficulty” section is also unique and very professional. You can seek help for your non-academic difficulties right from the comfort of your home and with complete confidentiality.
I want to highlight a very important point here; The course and the mentor is available, but it all depends on YOU and only YOU that how to use this facility and make the best out of it. I always got a prompt response from Asma & Helpdesk whenever I needed them. BeMRCOG is worth each and every penny.
**I didn’t find ALL these features on any other course all in one place and this is the reason that I grade this as the best online course.
I will now write some more important points which can be helpful to gain the most out of this unique platform based on my own experience. While going through BeMRCOG course, I followed this myself and sharing with you here:
BeMRCOG Induction Modules:
Follow the induction modules advise (honestly and religiously). It can change your whole approach to the exam, study pattern and even your clinical practice. It will make a real difference.
Brainstorming & Modules:
Don’t miss the brainstorming questions. Do the modules in a sequence to make a complete understanding of the topic. If you find anything missing just add your points. No course can cover the whole RCOG curriculum as it is very vast, and no one can instantly update material as it is very fast pace of new updates and guidelines.
Webinars and Workshops:
Don’t miss any of the online webinars AND do take them seriously with intention of learning. You get the most up-to-date and practical information from these online events at BeMRCOG. It’s a great opportunity to interact with others from all over the world and you will not feel lonely in this journey. I have attended ALL the webinars conducted by Asma, sitting at my home (what more can you ask for?). BeMRCOG uses one of the best softwares to conduct these online workshops with minimal technical issues.
Make NOTES for last minute revision and try to keep them as short as possible but must contain all important points. Keep adding if you come across new points. Make them in a format you are most comfortable with & ensure they are available to you anytime for example if you prefer paper notes you can keep a photo in your mobile and revise on the go.(Your notes can help only YOU and no one else)
SBAs need basic theoretical knowledge. It’s the single best answer but sometimes the best answer is not in the question then go for the 2nd best :). Practice as much as you can, but use the latest and authentic books & resources. Keep in mind some books do have errors. If you have doubts just look into the original source.
EMQs are a very tricky and scary part of the exam for all of us (including me). They usually test the clinical and practical management. I think it’s only possible with MENTAL flowcharts. Focus on each and every word of question and read very very carefully. Understand what is being asked. Sometimes there is the same answer for two questions. Don’t hesitate to mark the same answer (you have 50% chance of getting it right). Practice, Practice & practice. Many books & online resources are available but follow the latest ones & with authentic references.
BeMRCOG Website has a great question bank of SBAs & EMQs according to each topic.
Exam recalls are important BUT not the only thing. Almost always they are incomplete and poor. Use them to have the idea what to expect in exam. Try solving them yourself and it will help you in your thought process. Real exam gives a complete scenario and much easier to solve (if you know the topic well).
There is no hard and fast rule that you should read 3 or 5 years. It depends on the importance of the topic and level of evidence. Best way is to find out whether there is any TOG about a particular topic and then analyse its relevance to our level of exam.
Time management is extremely important during preparation, revision & exam. Make the best use of your time as I mentioned above (listening to tutorials while doing house chores of course through bluetooth wireless earphones :). Don’t miss out on the activities you enjoy because it helps you to focus better.
During exam just relax and learn to overcome anxiety if you find some difficult questions. No one can know the whole paper and no need to waste time overthinking on things which you will not know (even after passing the exam).
• Don’t miss any topic in the curriculum. Keep an eye on RCOG website. Do have some idea about each topic so your wild guess won’t be too wild in exam 🙂
• Keep things simple. Sometimes during preparation we focus too much on complicated things and straight forward questions are missed.
This is my experience of MRCOG part 2 exam and I hope it will be helpful to some extent.
I have no words to thank Asma Naqi and whole BeMRCOG team for my success. It would not have been possible without this platform. It’s like a family and I am proud to be a member of this family.
Before I end, I would like to share the most valuable lesson that I have learnt through my journey.
“SUCCESS IS BECAUSE OF MANY PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE, FAILURE IS ONLY YOUR OWN.”
I wish everyone all the best.
It is a privilege to write about my experience with BeMRCOG.
After I passed part 2 MRCOG I had no clue as to which course would best prepare me for part 3,
however, I wanted to take from someone who worked in the UK and was familiar with the health
system. A friend introduced me to BeMRCOG and said, “Dr Asma is very good. She does not
spoon feed you but she will guide you.” At first I hesitated as I wanted someone to spoon feed me, but
finally I joined .
It started off with the workshop in which my performance was poor. I could not even give a proper feedback, because I lacked basic understanding of part 3. I then started preparing through Asma’s lectures and notes. A few days later the group work started. It took me sometime for me to understand what was going on in the group. The older members in the group were so well versed and Dr Asma entrusted responsibilities to everyone in the group according to their capabilities. At first I used to write down what I was going to share pertaining to the tasks but after I knew what to say, it was spontaneous. I got the ‘know how’ and the foundation to build upon from this group. The rest was practice, practice, practice.
Dr. Asma is disciplined and expects the same from every member of the group. I passed part 3 MRCOG in the first attempt and I attribute this in part to Dr Asma Naqi. I suggest that students pay attention to her lectures. Thank you Asma for what you do in this group. I hope that you will continue your BeMRCOG training for many years to come.
After Allah, I’m very grateful to Asma Naqi for ‘BeMRCOG’ who helped me to make my dream come true!
This change in pattern from OSCE to part 3 clinical assessment is a very big challenge for non-UK students(as reflected by a dramatic change in passing rate)
I really feel blessed to have Your course Asma!
Its only BeMRCOG who taught me COMMUNICATION SKILLS so well which is incomparable to any other courses, Importance of CLINICAL GOVERNANCE and very well explained 14 modules BASICS OF EACH MODULE. Your course has given me general structure of each module that has helped me to build up my base and answer any unexpected scenario!
Thank you for keeping personal interest in each student and working on our personality too This is another unique feature of BeMRCOG as I did many other courses but nobody knows who is Nargis!! We, non-UK candidates, are on our own during this journey. Thanks a lot for understanding our needs and giving your personal attention that gave me confidence to walk through this difficult journey and achieve my goal!!
I would highly recommend this course to all non-UK candidates as its a one time investment and Asma not going to leave you until you pass the Exam!!
May Allah reward you the Best!
Alhumdullilah by the grace of Allah Almighty, I was able to clear my MRCPI Part-II in 1st attempt, specially OSCE. It was all due to the able guidance of my dear mentor Dr Asma Naqi, who imparted related instructions so professionally and comprehensively that I started feeling very confident in quite initial part of training workshops.
I recommend these workshops and training sessions to all the aspiring MRCPI/ MRCOG candidates with a guarantee that they will surely take a step towards success by being part of these sessions by Dr Asma Naqi.
Alhamdolilah! Today I passed my MRCOG part 2 exam. I want to thank Dr. Asma and the whole BEMRCOG team for getting this success because you people gave me step by step guidance from the beginning regarding how to study, how to compile the course and how to attempt the paper. Well, I’m celebrating my biggest win and would like to recommend this course who really need the platform to take initiation for this exam. Thank you so much.
Billions of thanks to BEMRCOG team; especially Asma! with out your input it was really difficult to get through. Highly appreciate for organizing and conducting such a systematic course with personal input, focused on improving individual weaknesses and instant feedback.
Thanks again to help me making my dream true.
I highly recommend this course to those who want to be ”MRCOG”.
BeMRCOG is a unique course in itself. Its very methodical, detailed and systematic information, covering all aspects of MRCOG . It clearly shows the hard work and effort put by Dr Asma to help us in achieving our dreams. Besides she provides the moral boost as well by writing the BLOGS and is readily available to help us all the time . She gives detailed feedback and tries to make us perfect in whatever we do. She covers all from the starting line to the end line in the stations in the part 3. The whatapp group she made for PART 3 is another advantage to discuss with colleagues and remove our fear of public speaking.
I took the MRCOG part 3 course and clearly benefitted from this and would recommend this to all especially, the NON-UK candidates, as we are new to UK system. She gives a clear picture of how things work in UK and we become familiar with UK Systems and the whole MRCOG part 3 becomes easier once we know that .
Thank you Dr Asma for making the whole journey easier for us .
Clearing MRCOG, its like a baby achieving one of the major mile stones in life.
Thanks for being my mentor!
For all aspirants looking forward to joining this course, it has recorded lectures on various topics around which OSCE exam is based. Especially for overseas candidates like me, it gives crystal clear ideas of how to deal with a particular station. Dr.Asma has a very clear voice which sticks in mind. From entry to exit of station , course covers everything you need to pass OSCE.
Thanks to Dr Asma, for her immense contribution in making this possible .
I am glad to write about Dr Asma Naqi, who is running a BeMRCOG online course in spite of her hectic schedule. Starting from the name of the course which aspires to become a member of RCOG till success in a simple way is unique in Asma’s course.
It’s quiet different from other courses-
A) It is an ongoing online course ( not a one or two days) which is quiet economical,
B) covers all and important aspects in audio tutorials,
C) Group workshops and individual feedback are very important,
D) last but not least the online help desk available for technical difficulties and guidance.
The focus is for candidates who are not working in UK. It is simple, clear, structured, well framed to face MRCOG exams…
I have no words to express my gratitude.
Without your insightful and detailed seasons on NHS working pattern and improvisation of communication skills, it would not have been possible to clear the OSCE. The one to one Skype session were really helpful and individual feedback was invaluable.
I am going to be remembering and thanking you through my steps in the admission ceremony!
I would highly recommend your tutorials especially to non UK MRCOG aspirants.
THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR SINCERE GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT.
Dear Dr Asma Naqi
I want to thank you for your prolific guidance and valuable advice that proved to be effectual and rewarding. For an overseas candidate like me MRCOG OSCE is like an enigma but your teaching was of great help in solving it. The tutorials were beneficial in providing an overview and the two online workshops were quite substantial in both content and context. The interactions aided in refining the approach.
Once again, a word of thanks for being a kind and considerate teacher.
I wish you all the best in your efforts of coaching many more candidates and guiding them to success!
I don’t know where to begin, as I am overwhelmed with emotions right now. But I know that words can’t describe my feelings of gratitude for you in this arduous journey of MRCOG. You are so good in what you teach that each and every thing that you say leaves an everlasting impact on the mind. I highly recommend Asma’s BeMRCOG to all those aspiring for MRCOG and specially to them who sometimes feel lost. Thank you Asma for everything.
I am writing to thank you very much for your teaching, support and encouragement towards my success at the MRCOG.
I found your beMRCOG course very useful. In particular, I appreciate that I undertook all the preparation online by virtual and e-learning. This minimized the inconvenience of travel and associated costs. The course was also very comprehensive and updated in line with the RCOG curriculum. It did go beyond my expectations in guiding me towards understanding the UK practice and culture.
The two skype based OSCE practice circuits were also very useful towards achieving this success. The stations were relevant and well detailed. The individualized feedback that you accorded each of us is highly appreciated.
I will recommend your course to my colleagues without reservation. It is sincerely worth more than its cost and all the time invested going through the modules.
‘I just want to take the opportunity to say a big thank you for all of your help and support in this exam period. Without your guidance and the brilliant BEMRCOG course, I’m sure I would be on my 3th attempt at this exam. Please keep up the good work because you are doing wonderful things In Helping us all. Congratulations to everyone who passed and for those who haven’t don’t give up!
I highly recommend this course,I will say is an excellent site for both UK and non UK trainees preparing for the MRCOG.”
Dear Dr. Asma,
I thank you very much for your much appreciated effort in keeping me on my toes while revising. I found the notes in your lectures very helpful. Unfortunately I did not manage to complete them on time for the exams as I started quite late with your lectures and I went back to what I have previously prepared.
I am very thankful I made it through this time as this was my third attempt at written and thank God I made the OSCE at first attempt. I have written my experience and advice for other candidates in the Do’s and Don’ts Forum of your website, hope that is of some help.
Thank you Dr Asma, for your encouragement throughout my preparation !
Thanks you so much Dr. Asma to help me out for OSCE exam without UK travel and without other courses.
I strongly recommend this course for those who are beginners, those who are struggling and those who need continuous and consistent support and guidance.
Special and prominent feature of Dr. Asma’s course that makes it different from any other courses, is her physical and spiritual presence in helpless situations. On steps when you could not move your body to find a way ,she is there to hold your hand so TIGHTLY EVEN YOU CAN CRY WITH PAIN……….. Now, I think this was much better for me as I’m relived after my success in the first attempt in OSCE without any UK experience.
I think to have her course and support along with Dr Tom’s sessions, it is enough to pass the exam in one go.
Aimlessly adrift in the sea of mrcog? Finding OSCE a nightmare?
There you will find Dr Asma as the one who can guide you in the right direction. She is focused, determined and more than a guide..
Thanks a lot for being there for me.
Wish you all the best in life.
Long time I awaited for this course, when it was in process.finally started in August 2013 . The reason behind this wait was
Dr Asma who was candidate of MRCOG few years back and now conducting this course Masha Allah.My opinion at the
time of joining this course was that she will be the right person for a proper guidance and preparation of this exam.
Because she passed through all those difficulties which can be a problem for us.i am happy that my idea was right .
she is trying her level best to help her students as much as she can. she is very quick in response regarding any
problems in course. I can recommend this course to anyone who is intersted and searching for a proper guidance .
i just want to say her thanks for all her efforts for her students May God bless her.
One of the best thing I ever did was join this course…Even though its been only few days since I joined this course,I can
already see and feel the difference…..Thanks a lot Dr Asma:)….You are the best:)))
Asma you are no more just a teacher for me but a spiritual guide and a continuous and kind support! No matter I go through the
exam or not but I am lucky enough to have such a person in my life! May Allah bless you always for all this !! Sadaf Sarwar.
I had been working really hard to go through MRCOG Part II exam, but honestly I could not get any direction to go to. I tried with a lot of advises,courses and even the course provided by RCOG that I attended the last year. But all these were just distracting my thoughts further.I kept on asking all the successful candidates about the exam tips but all in vain.Then by chance,fortunate enough , I joined Dr.Asma,s tutorials………a whole new track and that made things so easy for me .I am still a candidate but now my prospective has changed all together and I know one day I shall achieve my goal,InshaAllah.
I just want to give whole credit to Dr.Asma as her sincere,hardworking and individual based effort is something I will always be obliged to her for.Its really my luck to have a supporter like her.
I would really advise all my colleagues to join her on line course as it is the best one especially for those who have never worked in UK.Its not just a teaching support but a full time guide, a sincere teaching friend and a righteous assessor of your preparatory work.
Thank you Asma for being there for me, as now whenever I am stressed by the exam its not my family but its you that I count on! May Allah bless you and take you to the heights of success as being such support to candidates of our age is just like giving a life support treatment to an end stage patient so you are doing a double rewarded job!
I’ve always been a person admired by my teachers,colleagues,friends and patients and it’s the first time I am admiring someone so much!!! You are really special!!!
“I was a struggling MRCOG candidate knowing nothing where to start what to study how to study, and ohh the EMQs and SAQs were killers. Like most of us, I used to curse the system. But allhamdullilh I came across Dr Asma’s website and it was like a ray of hope for me. As most of us have the knowledge but we don’t have the direction. Dr Asma turned out to be a great mentor, teacher and a friend. Her way of teaching and her tutorials made me look at MRCOG exam from a new angle. And with due course of time my fears of EMQs and SAQs were gone .I knew exactly what to read , from where to read and how to read. She gives each candidate individual attention ,and teaches them according to their level of understanding. Her dedication and sincerity to her candidates is amazing. She gives her 100 percent and expect the same from you..her online course is an excellent guidance for overseas candidates ,who are mostly lost in the sea of knowledge. I strongly recommend this course to all and wish best of luck!”
“I joined Dr Asma’s course for MRCOG preparation as a distant learner over Skype. This was a good experience which boosted my confidence and helped me to overcome my shortcomings. She was bit strict for the schedule of her tutorials which were really difficult to complete sometimes with my job and family responsibilities. I tried hard to keep up with her fast tutorial pace. Her wonderful experience and advice for OSCE was a great help. Overall I benefitted a lot by her guidance and passed my MRCOG in 2012. I am grateful for her effort in conducting such a successful course.”
“I came to Dr Asma through one colleague while preparing for my membership exam.
When they advice me to register to her website bemrcog at that time we contact each other and started to attend with her the pre exam written course. I noticed her professional way of explaining the target as well as her serious way to control the delegants during the course. She taught me how to reach the top of being excellent in each topic. I leaned from her how to prioritise my concerns in order to reach my goals in a smooth way.
I consider my self lucky to know Asma
I wish her the best in her endevor.”
“I’m Dr. Tahira Jamil and I passed my MRCOG exam in the year 2011, fortunately under the guidance of Dr Asma Naqi. She is Indeed a capable teacher whose concepts are crystal clear and has mastered the proper technique of the MRCOG exam. For these very reasons I would recommend MRCOG candidates to join her website and courses.”
“I started attending Dr Naqi’s tutorial just when she started her course and I was among the first few candidates whom she called her debut victims. I must say that attending her tutorials brought a transformation in my approach towards this exam. I also has the privilege to work with her for about a year. I would strongly recommend to all of you to attend her courses and this will bring a change in your approach toward the exam and your patient management. I wish her all the best in her venture.”
