A GUIDE – HOW TO PREPARE FOR MRCS PART A

As an active MRCS mentor, I ask my members to follow below given stategies:-

  • Start solving mcq from day one and practice as many times as they can and from as many sources as possible.
  • It is always easy to begin with anatomy followed by physiology and then pathology and then moving on to revising principles of surgery and covering all topics.
  • Once they are confused or unclear about a question then i advise them to read more from rafatery/ pastest books / baiely.
  • Moreover, I suggest to learn more by discussing with fellow members actively – for that they should join and participate any active discussion group where they have oppertunity to interact with other fellows aiming for the same exam and are more or less under same circumstances. In this way they learn more in short tme and even retain what they learn as well.

Required study time should be 3 – 4 months but can be less for fresh graduates or in-flow fellows. Required study material should be kept simple, concise and must always include following:

1.    EMRCS subscription is relatively less costly so if one can afford it then subscribe to it otherwise offline version is good enough.

2.    Whereas Pastest is little expensive but its offline version is also suffice.

3.    More you need to excel on Sheet Fowzia and

4.    Recalls especially last five exams. This is all you need for part A.  

All study material that is required for MRCS PART A is as below: 

a) 1. ALL STUDY MATERIAL
