    Alhamdulillah Passed with 634.

    What are the recomended online subscription and books for the part 2.

    My advice to those taking the part 1 exam is to revise passmedicine word to word atleast three times.

    This forum was really helpful.

    InshaAllah join you all again for the part 2 forum.

    dr_mahmoud the markes are not distributed equally ie hard quizes have a higher scor than easy ones so u may answer onl 90 and pass if there hard and unfortunatly answer 130 and drop if the had a loer score rate
    best luck next time

    dr_mahmoud Guest

    dear dr ahmed
    it s unlogic to answer 130 quitions and got 460 marks only
    ofcourse there is something wrong
    it gets me mad when im thinkin in that issue

    No I feel you should contact the College and demand a re-evaluation.
  8. Friends I am starting a new thread for part 2 preparation by the name of " MRCP 2 April/July 2010". Even those who are not appearing in these diets can still share ideas and information there and help us pass in the attempts to come.

    I am still in Euphoria trying to come out of it soon i will be glad to join this although i am not sure for April yet will actively participate.
    we should decide to start unite by unite like gastro endo respo etc first read from OHCM or from passmedicine notes than we will but Bofs from sharmapastest and onexam and will start discussing about them .
    or if you guys have any different idea we can add that too.
    i wish you all very best in this endeavor and the good thing about is now its not looking endless Wink .
    You all have all the confidence in world now as you are pumped up with your resent achievement and thinking you can move the mountains right so i request you all dont break the momentum let your pendulum swing with its full flow i mean even if you are not appearing for april plz just join this group to maintain your rhythm so that you can be ready for july when the time comes.

    hii guys.. i did not pass the recent january paper. It was my first attempt. Currently not decided whether to re-sit in May or Sept? really need some advice on how to go about this. Pls share some thoughts. Thanks..

    Dear Docs,
    The real success is what you achieve(knowledge) during you endeavor(MRCP) just hitting your milestone(MRCP) doesn't mean you had achieved all . Please regather yourself failure didn't mean u are a bad doc or what so ever it was a lucky day for us and we passed even i marked alpha thalcemia trait rather beta think did such things in the exam still i manage to get a good score yah i did correct some difficult questions as well just applied my knowledge where needed for pinpoint accuracy and it helped me .
    My advice is for those who failed or are new comers i am not an authority just wants to share my experience which is as follows:-
    PASSMEDICINE very good its explanations are excellent in a simple format and easy to retain start from subject wise like cardio endo GIT etc..first read a topic from OHCM or kalra i would rather prefer ohcm but if you combine kalra with passmeds explanation it will work...
    ONEXAMINATION yah even the explanations are not that good yet you will find many from these 2 webs ...
    PASTEST they are almost 4000 i think they are difficult and when you going to the final round of your revision they hard to cope with .
    i tell you what look almost 14 units each having like 150-200 BOFS now do some maths like if u select passmed and onexam sure u have to do both of them multiply 14 units into 350 it make approx 5000 BOFS and if you add pastest they are 4000 BOFS by its own so when you go for a final go you cant handle 10000BOFS yah you can do with 5k or 6k at most ,so please try to stick on these two webs passmeds and onexam but do them good inshallha you will pass and please dont let yourself down you are still fresh go for it now and for new aspirants you please follow this dont think with job you can do it easily if you doing job give specific hours to mrcp presps than you can do it lets say at least give 3 hours and set you timetable and follow it and if you not coping with it set punishment for yourself you a better judge set yourself i used to curse myself hard if i used to do that than go random first finish unit by unit
    indulge yourself in a forum or form a skype group it will help you .
    Be confident reassure yourself that you can do it but dont be overconfident alwasy have to fear of failure that if you dont pull of your socks well in time you will not only fail but it would a big embarrassment for you follow stick and a carrot theory .
    if you can buy a pocket pc it will be gr8 help i copied all the webs in word format and than sync them into my pocket pc so even when i was on the move or during hosp duties when i got free time i used to recall them .
    Last but not the least you know your mother is your key to success with her prayers and your sincere efforts nobody can fail you .
    i hope the above will help you i will pray for you and all those who unfortunately couldn't make it and the new aspirants if ever you need any help please feel free i will try to help as much as i can.
    Kind Regards

    @ guest 2
    i passed the exam on my second attempt.sept 2009 scored (509) and was quite upset naturally..i decided to retake in jan 2010 coz i felt i had done most of the hard work and needed to focus on my weaknesses.
    so Thank God i managed this time wid a score of 601.

    u r the best judge of urself.if u feel u are almost there....then i would strongly suggest taking it in may...
    good luck...

    part 2

    dear jak2 mutation, i admire ur consistency in putting up posts. i cleared but have not been able to get my percentile. is it thru post or on the website. could not trace that.
    surely will catch up in arpil /july discussion.

    i have little advise to those appearing for part one. as has been previously mentioned, passmedicine 2 times is a must. others like onexamination -helpful(3/5), kalra (2/5; that is if u have read ur text previously will not need much help here. but if not done that it would be of great help.)
    it is important to revise well on time but read key points of passmedicine.
  22. Guest

    Guest Guest


    Hi fedup plz just do BOFS from onexam ohh man u so close515 u will do it dont worry
  23. Thanks very much "relaxed".

    Your advice is excellent, onexam, passmedicine and Kalra is the recipe but if one has pastest online subscription he doesnt need kalra at all, honestly I didnt read Kalra other than just a few topics from it.

    For "Fedup":

    Please do passmedicine and onexam and you'll pass it.
  24. Fed up

    Fed up Guest

    MRCPian and JAK2 mutation , thanks for a quick reply. I will do BOF only now.

    I was really gutted to fail with 515 but I said to myself, cant change the marks so better start cracking on . I had not done on exam or passmedicine at all , only pastest , may be thats why i failed

    doct Guest

    dont get depressed
    as i already told u
    dont b in hurry also
    let the details of result come first
    then u will no which system is less scored
    so thatu can start n give more time to that

    n i think many docs n woking in PHC R PASSING BOTH PART 1 AND PART 2


  34. For "doct"

    I am from Riyadh, working here in a long hour job.

    For "Aniqa"

    Do not lose heart, it's just an exam. I know many people passed it by just doing the practice questions and never touched the books.

    Just follow what others have advised like:

    if time allows do pastest online bofs with its e-lectures

    In addition to this, I guess what you need is the right approach towards a mrcp-1 bof. These questions are never straightforward, there is a lot of detail on how to handle the question in it and can be formulated into a long discussion but in a nutshell the apparently looking right answer is mostly not true, you have to fish around to find why they have given this question this way......the hint lies in this it's the technique that counts alot.

    You might not be lacking the knowledge but the technique.

    Hope this helps.
  35. mrcpin

    mrcpin Guest

    yah aniqa he is saying write i passed in first attempt dont bother with these facts i scored 641 i am from pakistan karachi as well you just start with passmed than onexam add kalara or ohcm give 3 hours atleast set your targets .
    if anything you want to know more i will be glad

    aya11 Guest

    hi every one:) realy passmedicine is a MUST ,,i started with it,, tried to answer as much Q as i can ,, then i shifted to 0nexamination ,,, for eg in CNS try to answer 300 or 400 Q of passmedicine and 100 or 200 Q of Onexamination ,, of you did this in each system you'll pass definitly,, the key is to go through as much question as possible,,, God luck for every one :)
  37. Guest20111

    Guest20111 Guest

    Dear All, Congrats to all those who passed and all the best for those who could not.

    I have been following this forum, mainly after the exams for the exam question discussions.

    This was my second attempt, The first I took in sep 2009 after studying for about 25 days from the passmedicine which I could complete 90% once and failed with a score of 422. After the result of first attempt the following were my conclusions on the causes of failure.
    1. It was Allahs decision for me which I have to accept, because there is a saying of Umar(May Allah be pleased with him), he Said: I dont care in what state I get up in the morning since I dont know whether its good for me or bad for me.
    2. Most of the questions in the sep 2009 revolved around passmedicine but I failed because I didnot read passmedicine thoroughly and hence commited lot of blunders.

    During this attempt I read passmedicine word to word and revised it once in 30 days and Alhamdulillah passed the exams with a score of 634.
    4. I had subscribed to pastest also but could do only cardiology and one pasttest paper from it.

    My sincere advice to those who could not pass is:

    With my limited experience of only two exams i.e. sep 2009 and jan 2010, What I felt is that the questions almost always revolve around passmedicine. each word of the passmedicine notes can come as a question. To pass with avery good score in MRCP(UK) part 1 one needs to read passmedicine word to word with atleast two revisions with a last very fast revision just one week before the exams.
    If you have enough time after passmedicine then doing the pasttest previous papers may be helpful.

    Others may not agree with me but once again my advice to all those who are taking the part 1 UK is read PASSMEDICINE, PASSMEDICINE and PASSMEDICINE.

    Thank YOU.
  39. doct

    doct Guest

    i agree wid guest 1972

    passmedicine is the best n first to learn along wid onexamination, n mrcpass
    as i told earlier
    repeated revesion is a must,
    dont get ur mind disturbed going to thick books
    what ever u read , read throughly
