Two weeks to go now to the launch of the new style BOHS module exams. Last week we received some details on the new format for Part B. Instead of one long question from a choice of two, candidates will be required to answer 5 out of 8 “micro-essay” questions. BOHS have now released some example questions which can be accessed here.
Given the time available for the exam hasn’t changed (2 hours 15 minutes total) with 45 minutes meant to be devoted to Part B, they are expecting no more than 10 minutes to be devoted to answering each of these “micro-essay” questions, so candidates answers will need to be concise, while ensuring that the key points are included. Experience will show how easy it is to achieve this.
