FRCEM Overview

Previously the MRCEM examination was an essential pre-requisite for entry into ST4 training posts in Emergency Medicine in the UK. In August 2016 the examination structured changed and the FRCEM Primary examination replaced the MRCEM Part A and the FRCEM Intermediate Certificate examination replaced the MRCEM Part B.

The FRCEM examination is now made up of three main components:

  1. FRCEM Primary
  2. FRCEM Intermediate Certificate
  3. FRCEM Final Examination

The FRCEM Primary is a single best answer question (SBAQ) paper, consisting of 180 SBAQs. The paper is three hours long.

The FRCEM Intermediate Certificate is a short answer question (SAQ) paper, consisting of 60 three-mark SAQs. The paper is three hours long.

More information about the FRCEM examination can be found on the Royal College of Emergency Medicine website

What Doctors Are Saying

" I have used this website for both MRCEM A and B preparation and found it highly informative. The questions are a very close reflection of actual exam. I would highly recommend this site to everyone preparing for MRCEM. " Dr Jaswinder Singh, Emergency Medicine Registrar, Chelmsford, Essex
" MRCEM Exam Prep is a fantastic online portal for the MRCEM exams. I passed my MRCEM part A exam at the first attempt using it. The best feature is the simulation. The questions are similar to what appears in the real exam, the language used, the length of questions etc, and the site helps us to prepare from day one. Your preparations are incomplete without MRCEM exam prep! Thank you mrcemexamprep.co.uk. " Dr. Krushna Patel, Emergency Medicine Physician, Mumbai, India.
" Excellent site, very similar to the actual exam, gives good feedback and allowed me to pass first time. " Dr Miranvir Jaspal, CT1 in Emergency Medicine, UK
