Dr McCays Top MRCP part 1 Exam Tip:
Remember that the questions are single best answer, which means that more than one answer may be correct.
Take the time to pick the one which is ‘most correct’. Doing lots of practice questions will help with this!
If stuck between two answers go with you gut instinct and first thought! It's generally correct most of the time!
