    MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination Format

    The MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination is designed to assess a candidate's knowledge and understanding of the clinical sciences relevant to medical practice and of common or important disorders to a level appropriate for entry to specialist training.

    The MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination has a two-paper format. Each paper is 3 hours in duration and contains 100 multiple choice questions in one from five (best of five) format, where a candidate chooses the best answer from five possible answers. Candidates will be tested on a wide range of common and important disorders in General Medicine as set out in the published syllabus.

    The composition of the Papers is as follows:


    Number of questions*
    Cardiology 15
    Clinical pharmacology, therapeutics and toxicology 20
    Clinical sciences** 25
    Dermatology 8
    Endocrinology 15
    Gastroenterology 15

    Ophthalmology 4
    Psychiatry 8
    Renal medicine 15
    Respiratory medicine 15
    Rheumatology 15
    Tropical medicine, infectious and sexually transmitted diseases 15
    * This should be taken as an indication of the likely number of questions - the actual number may vary slightly.

    ** Clinical sciences comprise:
    Cell, molecular and membrane biology 2
