Our Testimonials

I am so glad I attended this course! Having attempted the OSCE many times over the last few years, I had already attended other OSCE courses. Nothing came close to the support and advice I received here. I felt so much more confident entering the stations than before and I passed! I am so thankful … Read More

Atique was very thorough and made sure I was well prepared. The course was definitely worth it as it gave me an insight into the OSCE environment and pressure. It also allowed me to identify my weaknesses and what I needed to do to improve. Atiques’ feedback was very useful and I would definitely recommend … Read More

A. Rafique
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I travelled pretty far for this course but it was worth every second! I had not started revising prior to the course and everything I had learnt was through Atique! Learning the template, provided an excellent base for each station. I would definitely recommend going to this first as once you have been, no other … Read More

A. Khan
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I did this mock OSCE on recommendation of a friend who had previously done it. The set up of the stations is very much like the real OSCE. The scenarios were really helpful and very similar to the stations in the real OSCE. The feedback was brilliant and very detailed. A lot of time is … Read More

Personalised to individuals weaker areas and includes a circuit of a minimum of 17 stations. A good mixture of all OSCE stations: case history, communication, data interpretation and practical elements. The feedback was very thorough! Atique makes you aware of where you are going wrong and then sets in place a strategy to address all … Read More

Pre-Registration Optometrist

I attended the one to one mock OSCE course by Atique (Optocoach). I had failed my OSCEs the first time round and was on my second attempt. The setup is great as it gives you a trial of how the real OSCE stations will be. Plus the setup allowed Atique to see which areas needed … Read More

H. Ali
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I thought the circuit covered a wide range of topics, some of which I would have just brushed over whilst revising. The feedback was very in-depth and targeted areas of improvement which I found very useful as I now know what to work on. Also, I liked how you showed me how you would approach … Read More

H. Iqbal
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I was told by a friend to attend this mock OSCE course which consist of a real life experience of an OSCE unit and a practical course. The one to one review after the stations is what I found most helpful as it is very critical, to ensure you get every mark possible. It helped … Read More

H. Khan
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Where do i start about Optocoach? I had been to many other OSCE courses but I just did not feel content with them and had no idea on how to revise, what to revise or even attempt a station. The best decision of my professional career development was coming to Optocoach. Atique has extraordinary ability … Read More

H. Patel
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Atique provided me with a solid foundation on which to base my OSCE revision, not only with the intense mock OSCE circuit, but with the hours of dedicated one to one feedback. I found it to be a pivotal part in my osce preparation and in myself passing the OSCEs first time.  

H. Patel
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The course provided me with an insight into what the actual OSCE would be like. It allowed me to see how well I work under pressure and what areas I need to improve on. Atique was very thorough in his feedback which helped me a lot. This course is a must if you are about … Read More

Having failed my OSCE the first time, I got in touch with Atique, who was very helpful and arranged days for me to attend the mock OSCE course. The course was very helpful and thorough in covering all aspects of revision and was very similar in how the real OSCE is marked and set out. … Read More

M. Arshad
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I sat my OSCES for the first time in September. Before OPTOCOACH, I had been on a course that demonstrated OSCE scenarios & feedback in a group based setting. Though I found this helpful at the time, it didn’t prepare me even half as well as Atique did, as it didn’t give me a real … Read More

M. Ammad
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The most impressive and novel feature of this course is the comprehensive one to one, tailored feedback. Atique’s thorough approach to clinical practice is exactly what you need when preparing for the OSCE’s. For each of the stations attempted, you will gain in-depth constructive feedback from all of them (both written and verbal), with lots … Read More

L. Edwards
Optometrist

The mock OSCE course was fantastic! It prepares you really well for the real OSCE because there are so many mock stations. The feedback at the end was in depth. The mock OSCE is 1 to 1 which I felt really helped because it addressed my strengths & weaknesses. It is definitely the best course … Read More

M. Khatana
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Having done different training courses and failing one set of OSCEs. I looked into Optocoach. This is no ordinary/basic OSCE training course. It stood out because of its successful pass rate with previous candidates. It was extremely beneficial for me. A circuit was created and tailored to my weak points from the results of my … Read More

M. Patel
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I highly recommend the mock OSCE course held by Atique to any Pre-Reg’s looking to do their final OSCE exam. The one to one session and the practical session were extremely thorough and useful. I prefer this course over others that I have attended because it is very personalised, in that Atique evaluates your individual … Read More

M. Kauser
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Very good. It puts you in the real situation so you know what to expect. I liked how during feedback you went over variations of the station. Another good thing was you explained exactly how you would answer/approach a station and gave me a chance to retry VOLK.

M. Patel
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The Optocoach course was recommended to me by a friend who had completed it himself. Until this point my OSCE preparation was somewhat all over the place. I was struggling to structure my revision, with no real idea/experience of what to expect from the exam. Having completed both the course and the exam, I can … Read More

R. Das
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The mock OSCE course delivered by Atique was the best decision I ever made. I attended the one to two session as well as a practical course which fully equipped me with the skills needed to pass the March 2020 OSCE. It really boosted my confidence both in terms of communication and practical skills and … Read More

R. Khan
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I was fortunate enough to have passed my OSCE stations on my first attempt and I have no doubt the support and guidance provided by Atique was instrumental in my success. This was the sole course I attended prior to the assessment, I was extremely nervous but all areas of concern were covered in great … Read More

S. Abid
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I found the mock OSCE course very useful. The level of detail and advice provided by Atique is more than sufficient to help you pass your OSCE. The layout of the mock OSCE is very similar to what will happen on the day, so it prepares you mentally for the exam, too. The constructive criticism … Read More

R. Ali
Pre-Registration Optometrist

A truly fantastic mock OSCE course with brilliant service. I felt like I had my own private coach for the OSCEs. Without sitting any other mock courses I was nervous about how much preparation I had done. I was pleased to find out that this was the only mock OSCE course I actually had to … Read More

S. Ahmed
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Dear Pre-Reg, Prior to attending one to one training with Atique, my method of learning was setting me up for failure. I achieved great marks in uni but I cannot stress the value you will receive from attending this course and how much it will prepare you for the OSCE. The OSCE is completely different … Read More

S. Haidari
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The course was a lifeline for me. After a short break from practice due to personal circumstances, I really didn’t know where/how to start with revising for the OSCE. The course really helped put things in perspective for me. I learned the right techniques for tackling the OSCE stations. I learned the best way to … Read More

S. Madufor

S. Rehman
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Can’t recommend this OSCE course enough! There are so many courses available and sometimes you just do not know which one will be the most helpful. Having been lucky enough to go on 3 courses, I can honestly say this course was by far the best at preparing me for my OSCE. I walked in … Read More

T. Ahmed
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The OSCE preparation course was brilliant! The feedback at the end was extremely thorough and the technique on how to deal with each station differently really helped as I now know how to address each station in a logical manner.  The way to communicate terminology in lay terms to a patient and how to address … Read More

S. Kausar
Pre-Registration Optometrist

Excellent trainer and an expert in his field. Atique could answer all my questions and delivered the course in the best way possible. I liked the fact that it covered a broad range of topics from dispensing all the way to practical skills! Every single station was carefully planned. The most beneficial aspect of the … Read More

U. Siddique
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I found this mock osce course to be very beneficial for me. The various stations really helped me to gain the confidence and knowledge needed to complete the real osces successfully. The one-to-one mentoring proved to be extremely useful in refining my approach to each individual station. Overall I would highly recommend this course to … Read More

Z. Hassan
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I attended the mock osce course after failing on my first attempt. It was recommended by a friend who passed first time. I went over a very thorough circuit covering a variety of stations with a real patient, followed by feedback on how to answer each station. This gave me an understanding on how to … Read More

W. Ali
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The Optocoach OSCE preparation and practical course was a reflection of the real exam and really put things into perspective for me. It was set out exactly like an OSCE circuit with the opportunity to ask many questions. Having to explain my findings/discuss with a real patient, ensured that I was able to practise my … Read More

Z. Saleem
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I had failed the OSCE twice and became frustrated as I believed I had covered all the material and understood all the stations. I also felt no one at this point could teach me anything new that I had not already covered. My chances were running slim with only two more attempts left. I was … Read More

Y. Amood
Pre-Registration Optometrist

The OSCE course that Optocoach ran came highly recommended from peers that had been to the course before me. Therefore I had high expectations. However, I can confidently say that not only were them high expectations met but were also exceeded by far. The bespoke and well thought through OSCE course is designed to focus … Read More

S. Khan
Pre-Registration Optometrist

I had failed my OSCE twice and I was really worried about the remaining two attempts, so my friend recommended Optocoach. I didn’t do too well on the day of the course but this was good as Atique sat me down for hours afterwards and identified key areas across all stations where I was falling … Read More
