    I found Part 2 rather difficult than Part 1 (I gave both)
    Yes, time was more in Part 2, but it was sufficient for part 1 even.

    Any site where we can find the solved paper??

    I thought part was rather hard. too much upper GI and ENT. Some questions were decent though. there is no solved paper website.

    easy pass days are gone

    i heared from trusted sources, that they will fail most of the candidates this time.....

    pass rate will be no more than 10%...

    mark required to pass will be around 88%

    as surgery is getting more competitive, exams are meant to reflect the difficulty of getting a post........

    good luck anyway.. :!:

    what do u mean by trusted sources ?!
    even if this is true, i think it will be for part 3 only.
    making the pass mark 88% is not logical, if they want highly competitive exams usually they increase the difficulty of the questions or consider negative marking for wrong answers. the pass mark will depend on a standard curve for individual questios. furthrmore, criteria for compitition to posts does not depend on pass mark. :!:

    mrcs part1

    last 2 times the pass mark was around 60%
    even in last sept10 it was <60%.remember then there were 20 MCQ(100marks) hat means if u r not 100% sure about the question U mark all as true.more or less u will find about 60% true.so U can easily get some gift marks .But its now beyond imagination . U hv to know the answr and only then U can expect a mark.so is very unlikely to achieve very high score,so how comes the question of 88% and moreover RCS never discloses suchthings as far I believe.what U people think?

    yes my friend
    the current SPA style is more difficult, as only one mistake will zero the question. furthermore i never heared about an exam (in the history!) with a pass mark of 88% :shock: . however, few days and we will know the results. by the way is there any specific date for tha results?

    I entered MRCS 2 on Jan 15 and did pretty well in the exam
    My results are withheld. There were no problems at all.
    I wonder if anyone knows why?
