"I’m writing to you to express my utmost gratitude for the exemplary educational experience you’re providing especially for candidates like me who cannot otherwise encounter any patients due to not being a part of the healthcare system. I have literally just finished the course today, but I can tell you that I feel much more positive about the exam experience and will be working on improving myself, taking all the notes onboard. I want to thank all the kind doctors who were very kind and compassionate. I will absolutely recommend this course to everyone who wants to pursue PACES as it is indeed the best! Please keep up doing your great work."
Dr Sariah E, June 2023

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to PACES Ahead, as it has helped me pass my PACES! I really enjoyed the course and have definitely recommended it to my colleagues. I wanted to make a special mention to Dr B who gave some really tailored advice about listening to murmurs and to Dr Y who basically taught us how to present all the exams in a nutshell! I’m addition, the multiple Station 5 practice definitely paid off as I got full marks in both my station 5s. I thought the course was extremely well organised and everyone was really friendly and approachable! "
Dr Zhilin J, May 2023

"I am writing to express my appreciation and gratitude for the effort that you put in to deliver the course. I attended the course in January and it was an absolute pleasure, I enjoyed every aspect of the course and at the same time learned a lot about PACES. The faculty are knowledgeable, experienced in teaching and ready to answer questions. I would like to share my happiness on passing the exam and wish you all the best in the future."
Dr Elnuman M, April 2023

"I just wanted to write and let you know I passed my PACES exam and to thank you for putting on such an excellent course back in February. Particularly as someone completing PACES whilst in a different speciality, the course was an invaluable help to ensure I had seen a big enough variety of patients to prepare me well for the exam. Your tutors were excellent and very approachable, helping to build my confidence and skills throughout the week which was particularly important as a non-medicine trainee feeling very apprehensive about sitting the exam!"
Dr Rach A, April 2023

"I did pass PACES first time and wanted to say thank you for your course as I found it extremely helpful and really appreciated the guidance."
Dr Gina S, April 2023

"Thank you for your excellent PACES course at the end of January. I passed with 95%!"
Dr Molly J, April 2023

"I got my results today and I passed with a clear pass. Thank you for your help, the course helped me to better my timings, skills and communication. I credit the course alot for my results today and would definitely recommend it to my peers. I can't thank you enough for the support."
Dr Aakansha S, March 2023

"I'm very glad to inform you that I have passed with a score of 160 out of 172. The course, without any doubt, is a library of a variety of exam-oriented cases and reflects the exact exam situation that we encounter. It was invaluable in fine tuning my presentation skills in an exam focussed manner- in other words " stand and deliver with confidence". Not to forget the delicious food and your remarkable leadership in organising this amidst the enormous pressures."
Dr Kamalesh R, February 2023

"I'm pleased to say that I passed PACES first time with a mark of 94%. PACES Ahead was brilliant and, although I had done quite a lot of studying prior to the course, I really don't think I would have passed without attending. I've already recommended you to colleagues."
Dr Stuart M, January 2023

"I am delighted to inform you that I have passed the PACES. Thank you for the guidance of your team during the course."
Dr Caryn T, January 2023

"Just a note to say a huge thanks for the work you do to organise this course. I was apprehensive about going being only an IMT1 and having spent several years out in research so my knowledge was a very rusty and I'd heard stories of very intense and high-pressure teaching strategies on other courses which I don't think would have helped me. I found the environment in PACES Ahead to be just right, friendly and supportive whilst also stretching us a bit. I'm pleased to report that I passed first time which was a huge relief. Many thanks again and I will certainly be recommending the course to friends (already have been doing so!)"
Dr Sam L, December 2022

"I want to let you know that I did pass my PACES! I felt so unprepared until I came on to the course and in just four days, I learnt so much and gained so much confidence. I definitely couldn’t have got through it without attending! The course also reminded me how amazing medicine is and why I love it so much. Every trainee should get an opportunity to go on this course, I wouldn’t mind attending it again just to have some fun and learn lots more. Thanks to you and the whole PACES ahead team for running it so well! "
Dr Chaamanti S, November 2022

"I want to say a big thank you to the entire PACES AHEAD team and the amazing patients as well. I passed my PACES exam and I could not have done it without you as I had a very short preparation time. The course was essentially my major preparation. Thanks again for the opportunity to learn from you all."
Dr Okuma O, November 2022

"Thank you to you and all the course teachers as well as the patients for the help! I have passed my PACES in my first attempt with 28/28 and 26/28, on the station 5s- i think that was majorly contributed to the s5 practice provided on the course. I really found this course extremely useful and recommended this as the course to go to for my other colleagues."
Dr Sonika S, August 2022

"I just wanted to relay my sincere gratitude to you and your team for the amazing course you delivered. I was particularly worried about the exam as it was not my first attempt, but it is because of what I gained from your course that I was able to sit my exam confidently and to the best of my ability with a final pass! I have definitely recommended the course highly to other junior doctors."
Dr Vanessa K, August 2022

"I passed my MRCP PACES Exam in the first attempt in August 2022, I attended your course and the practice and tips that I got from you laid the foundation of my success. I thank you for helping me and many others achieve their dream."
Dr Hamza K, August 2022

"I just wanted to let you that I passed my exam first time. I would like to thank you and everyone else at the course who helped. I have recommended this course to my fellow colleagues, most of my colleagues chose to go to another course, however from what I've heard, your course appears to be much better in terms of location, food, organisation and physical examination practice."
Dr Nadia K, July 2022

"I am emailing to inform you about my success in PACES with a score of 168/172. This was in no small part due to my experience at PACES Ahead last autumn and I wanted to give my thanks for such an excellent programme and all the support and encouragement from you and the rest of the tutors."
Dr Na’im M, July 2022

"I attended your course in May 2022. I have since sat and passed my PACES exam at my first attempt. I believe that attending your course was crucial to my preparation and a key aspect in my passing the exam, so thank you!"
Dr Robert C, July 2022

"Thank you for organising an excellent course. I just wanted to say that I have successfully passed PACES and miraculously with full marks! One of the cases that we practiced in the course came up on my station 5. Helping me stay calm & collective giving me the strong start I needed to get through."
Dr Hussain R, July 2022

"I just wanted to share the good news of passing PACES this time (with full marks in respiratory, cardiology, neurology and abdominal stations!). I found the course very helpful and will certainly be recommending to my colleagues."
Dr Koushan K, July 2022
