    Hi...did someone say the result would be ready by the 12th or 13th of Feb on the mrcp website? They didn't tell us anything of that sort on the day of the exam...so I was wondering where that information came from...please tell me if anyone knows.

    Exam paper in detail

    The exam papers are not the same. Even for the same exam center are many versions of exam papers, its all depends on your exam no. This done to prevent cheating. Most of the quetions are same , but 10 -15 are different. In each paper , are are 2-3 questions that are trial questions only and does not contribute for your marks at all.

    Answer for MRCP questions

    I took MRCP Part 1 for 2nd time last Jan 2008. My 1st attempt is in May 2007. Both the 2nd papers in May 2007 are out of this world compare to this Jan 2008 MRCP Part 1!.

    In May 2007, almost every question is very hard. I failed by 9 questions less for the pass mark. There are many questions on management which is not available in Kalra. I did many stupid mistakes esp in pharmacology. My cardiology, neurology ,gastro and infectious disease almost laid flat in the attack!. My opthalmology nearly suffer total disaster. About 30% of the questions is not in Kalra. But all covered in Oxford Handbook of medicine. Remember, the college uses Oxford Textbooks of Medicine only as Gold Standard answers for the questions in MRCP papers. The shorter version is the Oxford handbook, so it is a must to pass the exam.

    And remember read only UK textbooks for MRCP not US books. The American has far advanced in medicine from any nation in this world, even better than UK. If you read the US books, you will spend your time pointing out at the mistakes in the MRCP paper and not actually answering it!. The US books has molecular basis to support their diagnosis, management and prognosis of disease, unlike UK which depends on statistical probability , consensus and resource availability in making diagnosis and guide their management.

    So remember to read UK books only and read the consenses for treatment before attempting MRCP.

    BG Guest

    hi , the exam was really tough and tricky at the same time... so u cannot guess how was ur performance in general.. i read in ur website about the experience of one of the candidates's friends who sat for mrcp few months ago and asked them abou the exam ...and the one who said it was tough and got around 30 mistakes i think passed the exam and the other who said it was easy failed it..... so u see it was tricky not more or less :roll: :roll:

    Pass mark?

    I am sure the pass mark will be high this time. In May 2007 ,it is 62.05% and in Sept 2007, if I am not wrong, it is more than 63%.

    The pass mark is at the point where only 33% of the candidates with higher marks will pass and the rest, 67% will be made fail by the college.

    The total question is only 195, and not 200 as 5 questions will be trial and will not contribute to the total marks.

    mrcp 2008 is correct ..they only want 1 standard deviation ie close to 32 percent to pass the mrcp 1...of course pass percentage for mrcp part 2 is close to 56-57...but part 1 is like a strainer..they want only the cream..

    litium in refractory depression

    More than one third of patients with a major depressive
    episode in general do not respond to antidepressants (Bauer
    et al., 2002). Lithium can presently be considered the best
    validated augmentation strategy for patients not responding
    to tricyclic antidepressant (TCA), selective serotonin reuptake
    inhibitors (SSRIs)(Bschor et al., 2003; Heit and Nemeroff,
    1998; Zullino and Baumann, 2001), venlafaxine
    (Bertschy et al., 2003; Zullino et al., 2001) and mirtazapine
    (Bruijn et al., 1998).
    The main current hypothesis postulates a synergistic serotonergic
    effect of antidepressants and lithium. Lithium has
    been found to enhance serotonergic function among others
    by modulation of serotonin turnover and release (de Montigny,
    1994; Price et al., 1990). Furthermore, it has been
    suggested to act on 5HT1A receptors previously sensitized by
    the antidepressant treatment (Chaput et al., 1991; de Montigny,
    1994; Heit and Nemeroff, 1998).

    Stop this speculation

    Hi all,

    Please stop this speculation. RCP is not a fool, there is no such thing like if you can apply for Part 1 in your account on MRCPuk.org means that you hv failed ur Part 1 Jan 2008. The systems is only active after the info is loaded in it.

    The exam is over. Just pray that you pass and if you hv not confident start revising all over again.
