    I do agree with you it was fair, but bit tough in the sense that it required lot of reasoning. Fair means of testing knowledge. Any idea regarding when will be the results?. When r u planning to take part 2?.

    Hi friends.
    I thought that the exam was very tricky. I did like 8 mcq books of MRCS core and systems modules and nothing from core was asked!!! It was strange that nothing from breast ca, prostate ca was asked. It was a physiology paper with really confusing anatomy questions. I dont know if I can get the required 70% minimum to pass...lets pray and see for each and all of us.

    Yes it's so strange that no core ? was ask ........i do not know what is the secret but did you notice how is the difficult anatomy questions? and i think all candidates found this difficulty and to little extent physilogy.but pathology any one can answer them

    Yes, anatomy was very tricky you had to imagine from 3 dimensional views. I had studied core questions like pre-op, trauma etc... but nothing came from there, so many hrs wasted! If I do fail-and this is also for the ones who r going to give mrcs 1- I will definetly to Anatomy and physiology from the same books i did for first proff like Snells and Guyton. Its so strange that nothing common was asked and from pastest books only 2-3 questions were same thats it!!! From over thousands!!!
