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
