I scored in the top 10% for the SJT for the FY1 Application.

I scored in the bottom 20% for the SJT for the MSRA SJT [A speciality SJT Exam that you may/will encounter in a few years time].

I can confidently say it's a number generator game as my ethics does not vary that much

Apart from not inspiring you with any confidence, my advice would be to make sure you read Good Medical Practice by the GMC and ensure you do the mock papers online.
Most importantly of all, the only person that I know failed the exam was because they left the last 20 questions blank as they ran out of time. So keep an eye on the clock.

Apart from that, I have every faith in you being lucky with the number generator game

I also scored top 10% in the SJT and I too have no particular tips tbh.

The only teaching we had on the topic was a panel of a GP, a medical consultant, a palliative care consultant, and a professional ethicist, answering sample questions. They didn't agree on a single question, and their consensus answer wasn't the perfectly correct one once.

My main tip is for god sake don't run out of time. Every year at least one or two people come on TSR to say 'oh no I ran out of time will that affect me'. Er, yes, of course! How did you let that happen?!

Otherwise, do all the past papers available, mainly to just be used to the format, and make sure you read all the questions thoroughly. Its more a test of reading comprehension, than anything to do with professionalism or decision making or anything like that.
