How does the MRCP exam look?
The MRCP exam consists of three parts, two of which are written tests. The third part of MRCP is a clinical examination, done in stations, and is named MRCP PACES.
Part 1 of the examination will take a single day with two three-hour-long written tests, with 100 multiple-choice questions per test. The tests contain no images and all of the questions follow the best-of-five format. To take Part 1 of the MRCP exam, you will need a minimum of 12 months of postgraduate experience, being employed as a medical professional. Revise your knowledge of core medical concepts, along with skills and behaviors. The questions you will face will all be base on the UK Specialty Training Curriculum for Core Medical Training and Curriculum for Internal Medicine.
During Part 1, your knowledge will be tested extensively, covering the material you have studied during your undergraduate years. Part 1 of the MRCP exam will assess your familiarity and understanding of both common and important disorders, along with concepts relating to clinical science. You will also be required to know and understand the United Kingdom’s national guidelines for medical practitioners. This part of the exam also acts as a preparation for candidates for the Part 2 Examination, which is much more challenging than Part 1.
The written section of Part 2 Examination can only be taken after you pass the MRCP Part 1 Examination, as it expands on the knowledge that the first part assesses. Similarly to Part 1, Part 2 Written Examination takes place on a single day, with two three-hour-long tests that contain 100 questions each. Unlike Part 1, these questions will include images. The material you will face will also represent a sample of skills, behaviors, and medical knowledge specified in the UK Specialty Training Curriculum for Core Medical Training and Curriculum for Internal Medicine.
Part 2 will check your ability to make judgments as a medical practitioner and apply your clinical understanding. You should also be prepared to take responsibility for assessing prognoses, selecting plans for immediate and long-term management, planning investigations, and prioritizing diagnostics and problem lists.
The last part of the MRCP exam is the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills, or PACES for short. The examination will test your competence in a range of clinical skills, including Physical Examination, Identifying Physical Signs, Clinical Communication, Differential Diagnosis, Clinical Judgement, Managing Patients’ Concerns, and Maintaining Patient Welfare. The examination takes half a day, during which you will progress through five stations, each taking 20 minutes with 5-minute intervals between them.
