It is important for a doctor in postgraduate training (doctor) not to sit an exam if they know they have not been able to put in the necessary revision, whatever the reason(s), to give a reasonable expectation of passing.
Not all doctors will pass their postgraduate exams on their first attempt, even if they have put every effort into preparing for them. Many doctors require further assistance to help them succeed.
The first step to improving the chance of gaining a pass is to recognise the need for this support as soon as possible, as early intervention and support are proven to improve exam pass rates.
