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

" Statistically and speaking from experience, passing the MRCEM Part A is one of the hardest post graduate tasks that there is. The breadth of basic sciences and anatomy that you are expected to know is a formidable task. With the MRCEM exam still being a relatively new exam, the main problem prior to MRCEM Exam Prep was that there were simply not enough practice questions around to test the broad knowledge demanded to pass the exam. Many candidates often used practice MRCP/MRCS questions to aid their revision. MRCEM Exam Prep has a large bank of questions that are all specifically designed for MRCEM Part A candidates. Each question provides ample and logical reasoning for the answers. The questions are a perfect aid to test how well your revision is going and give you an indication of whether you will be successful in the exam. In short, use MRCEM Exam Prep and prepare to pass!
