To help you prepare for PACES we have made these station 2 and 4 scenarios available to give you an idea of what to expect on the day.
Most of these sample scenarios have previously been used in the examination. They are are no longer suitable for use in the real exam because they are out of date, too technical, or have been used for a long time previously. The sample scenarios will give you an idea of what happens during the exam at Stations 2 and 4, but please note in the actual examination, candidates only receive the section marked ‘Information for the candidate’.
Sample scenarios for Station 2 (history taking) and Station 4 (communication skills and ethics)
Sample Station 5 scenarios are available in the advice section.
For more details on how to pass each skill see the advice from examiners.
