    The MRCS exam is changing in format. There will now only be two parts as opposed to three. In addition, F1 and F2 trainees have been advised not to take the exam until they enter specialist training.

    The Royal College of Surgeons Website is the best place for the latest info:

    Well, it's all up in the air at the moment, but here's how it's provisionally going to work:

    Foundies have to do all their DOPS, mini-CEXs etc, plus all the extra stuff like audits. To get that extra special something for surgical ST programmes, you should probably run a surgical logbook (get some scrub time), do surgical audits etc etc.

    Currently the plan is for MRCS part 1 to be taken suring ST1, and MRCS part 2 to be taken in ST2. Progression to ST3 is dependent on passing part 2 in ST2. I suspect if you fail it's a case of bye bye, you're never going to be a surgeon! All this is on the Royal College website.

    So my plan goes like this - take part 1 (and hopefully pass) in Jan of F2 year. Then I can work like mad on part 2, and take it as soon as I can in the ST2 year, which hopefully means I have time for one resit while still in ST2 and before any kind of application process (if there is one) for the ST3 year.

    I suspect part 2 is suddenly going to be lot harder than it was before. That's why I want enough time to resit if I have to.

    Hi Fiona,
    You've obviously worked this out very cleverly and I wish you all the very best. But what happens if the MRCS is not to be taken before ST1? According to some of these posts, it would seem like that is what we are going towards. Or have I misunderstood?

    At the moment all that is required to make you eligible to sit the exam is the possession of a basic medical degree. There is no compulsion to wait until ST1 to take the new Part A (MCQ exam) - this is only a recommendation. See the regulations on the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh website at www.rcsed.ac.uk .
    Good luck!

    Cool! That's good to know! If I do end up staying in the UK (very doubtful!), i wouldn't want to wait to sit the exams.

    Hmm, the date of doom rapidly approaches!

    17 days (or is it 16?) until MRCS part A

    For the people who wanted to know:

    Books I'm using:
    Anatomy Recall
    Basic Science for the MRCS
    The Pastest 1 and 2 books

    Websites I'm using (you have to pay for both of these - very early xams present from my Dad!):
    www.pastestonline.com
    www.onexamination.co.uk

    Doing OKish on part 1, really need to hit the part 2 studying now.

    Fingers crossed!

    I wanted to get into ENT, and got offered an academic foundation programme last week, which had 1 surgical rotation in it out of the 6 in the 2 years. Was a little apprehensive about taking it despite the fact that the 2 academic rotations can get some publications with your name on due to minimal surgical exposure. I contacted one of the chairs of the MMC committee and he recommended that I accepted the role as MTAS is unreliable and also, since F1 and F2's...even some STs don't get to go to theatres anyway. His advice was for me to do mr MRCS part 1 in year 1, followed by a diploma in ENT in F2 (DOHNS). This shows that you can do it in F1, as he is a committee member and is recommending it to me. Any other advice?
