How To Use This Website

For MRCPCH part two clinical, follow the instruction after regeistering and gaining access to the website.

The MCQ exams in paediatrics are very challenging as are any other MCQ exams. It is a good idea to prepare before going to start any of these papers and try to solve at least >1000 MCQs, EMQs and BOF. Attempt 2-3 papers from this site to find out where your weaknesses are by seeing where you have scored low. Revise further around those areas and then start again by analysing another 2-3 papers . It is also a very good idea to start the preparation with someone else who is taking part in the same exam as you are doing and analyse questions together so you can learn from each other, preferably with another 1 or 2 colleagues.

Taking part in courses is another idea if you do not have much time to read books. The courses will help you to identify which system/s you are not having enough knowledge in and you should perhaps go and read that system/s e.g. cardiology or pharmacology etc…

How Long Does Each Paper Take?

Each paper will need a minimum of 120 minutes to do it. There will be a timer for the paper, which will be for 160 minutes. After 160 minutes, you will be logged out automatically and can review your answers and then you can move to paper 2 of the exam.

Following your completion of these 10 papers, you will have a better idea and strategy of how you are going to perform on the exam day. The website will give many chances for each paper over one month and you will have comprehensive feedback from the director of this website.
