3. Trying to prepare a KSA while ill is proving almost impossible
I hope you're feeling better - how are you finding your KSA prep? Struggling with mine a little at the moment. Are you hoping to apply for step 3 this year for autumn intake?

Re: LiveChat event 2018: University of Surrey team online Q&A

I would certainly be interested. 1. Whether there are additional examination dates or whether the written exam will only be on 16th February 2019. 2.

I have read lots of topics on the forum around this but I was wondering what have people done or found helpful in managing imposter...

Maybe it's worth giving them a call directly though and confirming this. Good luck with it. The PWP courses are still being funded. I believe applications...
