Genetics For Trainees wish everyone sitting the upcoming RACP Written Exam all the best for their last couple of weeks of study.

For your final genetics revision and the questions on the day:
– Know key points about topical or common genetic disorders.
– Read the question very carefully.
– Draw the pedigree if it is not provided.
– Check your calculations.
– Rule out as many answers as you can.
– If more than one seems correct go with your best guess.
– Disregard something you’ve never heard of!
