Overview

Oxford Assess and Progress: Situational Judgements Test (SJT) is THE definitive guide for students preparing to sit the new Situational Judgement Test for entry into the UK Foundation Programme. This authoritative book, mapped to the foundation programme curriculum and GMC guidance, includes over 230 practice questions to help readers maximise their SJT score. This essential guide demystifies the SJT and provides a structure for identifying "correct" answers. All scenarios are based on real experiences informed by over forty doctors and closely mirror questions expected to appear in the SJT. Detailed explanations are provided for each answer based on established professional guidance. These help readers internalise the attitudes and values required of junior doctors which are not always taught explicitly at medical school. Written by junior doctors and overseen by experts in medical assessment, this authoritative guide is aimed at students wanting to achieve the best possible score and take control of the first stage of their medical careers.
