As you all know, MRCEM is a three-level examination consisting of MRCEM Primary, MRCEM Intermediate, and MRCEM OSCE. Here we are discussing about the important dates in MRCEM Exam Calendar 2023
The MRCEM Primary is a three-hour long exam consisting of 180 Single Best Answer (SBA) questions. RCEM uses Pearson VUE, a provider of computer-based testing, to electronically administer its written exams. Though no previous experience in emergency medicine is required, all overseas candidates are expected to have an IELTS score of 7 to sit for the MRCEM exams.

The MRCEM OSCE, the third and final exam required for membership in the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, evaluates trainees’ clinical and communication abilities to make sure they are prepared for further education. The GMC has granted permission to the Royal College of Emergency Medicine to switch the MRCEM OSCE mark scheme from checklist marking to domain-based marking (in line with the current FRCEM OSCE examination). 16 8-minute stations make up the MRCEM OSCE, with a minute of reading time in between each station. The test includes two break stops as well.

Please take note of these upcoming exams if you’re preparing for the MRCEM exam so that you can schedule your study time and revision appropriately. Anatomy and physiology make up the majority of the marks available in the test, making it a good idea to concentrate most of your revision on these topics. The vastness of the anatomy course makes it the hardest part of the test for most applicants to understand. The path of emergency medicine is difficult yet rewarding. Working hard will pay off in the end.
