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
