It is a good idea to go to the UWA anatomy dept and hire a box of bones for 6months.

We have all the anatomy models may be in the VIVA exam. They are located in my office. They can be used at any time but MUST not leave the dept

Each week reflects how many MCQs will appear from the subject matter- It gives you an idea of how much effort to spend on the material. There are very big sections which only have a few MCQs so you need to specific selective with some of the material


I have included 2 weeks to cover both CVS and RESP physiology as they cover 20/60 mcqs and will be 2/5 viva questions

Anatomy UL and LL includes a revision week as it cover 30/60 MCQs and will be 2/5 viva questions

I will give you additional material which will help you in your preparation when we start the program or earlier if you want. Just come and see me. Bring a flash drive>2GB ACEM primary exam with explanations. Worthwhile resource

Good luck
