Create your own SCA cases

Our free SCA creator tool enables you to create, share and practise mock SCA cases to help you revise for the MRCGP Simulated Consultation Assessment.

You can easily create realistic SCA cases using our SCA case creator tool. Each case is made up of candidate instructions,Β patient instructions andΒ examiner instructionsΒ (including a checklist and examiner walkthrough).

Candidate instructions

The candidate instructions (also called candidate brief) section of our tool allows you to provide relevant background information for the candidate before they start the consultation. Candidates have three minutes to read these instructions before the consultation starts.

Our SCA creator tool allows you to include:

  • Notes from recent consultations
  • Images (e.g. a picture of a rash submitted by the patient)
  • Recent test results
  • Past medical history
  • Medications
  • Letters from other healthcare professionals

Patient instructions

The patient instructions section of our toolΒ provides the person playing the role of the patient with information such as their symptoms and other relevant history (e.g. ideas, concerns and expectations).

Our SCA creator toolΒ provides a simple editing interface, allowing you to build a script that is easy to read with all the necessary details.

Examiner instructions

You can build an interactive mark scheme for each case. Each mark scheme can beΒ mapped to theΒ specifics of the scenario and the SCA assessment domains, including:

  • Data gathering and diagnosis (DG&D)
  • Clinical management and medical complexity (CM&C)
  • Relating to others (RTO)
  • Global impression
