FRCEM Intermediate

The FRCEM Intermediate Certificate is the second part of the FRCEM examination and is sat twice yearly.

The paper is three hours long and comprises 60 SAQs, each of which is awarded three marks. The exact marking scheme is closely guarded but each question is marked as being below, equal or above the median in each sitting. A pass or fail will then be awarded depending on the median for the exam and how your performance compares to that of the other candidates on the day.

The FRCEM intermediate SAQ examination is mostly clinical and tests clinical topics that are commonly encountered in the Emergency Department setting. The areas tested include:

  • General medicine
  • Trauma & Orthopaedics
  • Paediatrics
  • Surgery
  • Anaesthesia
  • Ophthalmology
  • ENT
  • Maxillofacial surgery
  • Obstetrics & Gynaecology
  • Psychiatry

What Doctors Are Saying

" 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.
