MRCS Part A revision


Welcome to eMRCS. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. The MRCS exam comprises two parts, the first of which, part A, comprises two exams sat on the same day. 

The morning paper lasts for 3 hours and covers applied basic sciences. The afternoon paper lasts 2 hours and covers principles of surgery in general. 

In the current climate with the Coronavirus pandemic, exams are being delivered remotely, the colleges will provide all details of this to prospective candidates.

Both exams deliver questions using the single best answer format.

Detailed preparation is key to passing the exam and we generally suggest 4-6 months  preparatory work to give candidates the best chances of success. 

We have developed a detailed resource to help you prepare for the exam. We aim to cover all aspects of the syllabus with detailed questions and carefully explained answers.

With best wishes,
