Using eMRCS

eMRCS is a flexible resource designed to help you study right up to the exam itself. How you choose to study is your own decision, however eMRCS can be adapted to suit most study styles.

Consolidate your learning

Before starting your session you have complete control over what topics you can tackle. Should you wish to check recently acquired knowledge, choose a sub category from the menu.

Preparing for the exam

Tackle the questions in random order to stretch your study skills. At the end of each question you will still be able to review your answers. As you approach the exam we would recommend attempting timed tests to more realistically mimic the exam process. Don’t worry if you are pressed for time, our timed tests can be tailored to suit your schedule.

Checking progress

As you approach the exam make use of our histogram to check your marks against those of your peers. This will give you an idea of how your level of knowledge compares to others.

Revise on the go - use our mobile service

Our site is designed to be used with mobile phone devices. Some of the more complex elements are disabled. However, you will still have access to challenging questions and immediate responses.


Please give us feedback. This is extremely important. If you like (or dislike) a question please let us know. At the bottom of each question there is a star rating- simply click on the star to rate the question. If you have time we really appreciate it when people send us comments about the questions or the exam itself.
