multiple choice questions attached.
• Each multiple-choice question has a single- best- answer and relates to the information in the clinical case outlined in the clinical vignette.
• As the total examination contains 280 questions across four sections, this means that every examination will have 56 scenarios (clinical vignettes), each with five related questions.
