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

"I have been using your site for the past 6-8 months preparing for my FRCEM Primary. As always your reply service is amazing!!
