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

" This website is a fantastic revision tool for the FRCEM Primary examination. I really can't recommend it highly enough to anyone about to sit the exam. The questions are challenging, well written and really represent what you will encounter in the actual exam. " Dr Anbin Naidoo, Emergency Medicine Registrar, London, UK
"I used this website again for Part B of MRCEM and I again passed first time like for part A. Again this is a very realistic, very informative and best website to use for the exam. I did not use another other resource, no other books, I did not go on any courses. Just buy this online and do the questions again and again, it's so simple and used in real life also so dual benefit. Thank you. " Dr. Miranvir Singh Jaspal, Trauma and Emergency Medicine Specialist Doctor
" 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.
