About their Pastest product

Excellent teaching materials, very useful to clear MRCP. Videos of clinical patients are very good and helpful for clearing PACES.

Subraya Holla

PACES needs proper practice of the cases which are often given in the examination. Pastest's material provides enough resources and methodology to practice the same. I am sure, with the help of these materials, passing PACES is easy.

Nasim Ahmad

Demonstrations on how to examine real patients with evident clinical signs really helped. Also I love how many cases of the same disease were demonstrated just to show the spectrum of a disease's presentation.

Nada Zulkufli

This is all so good... available 24 hours, 7 days a week, even if you are tired just look and listen... you will be engaged... I recommend Pastest PACES to all candidates.

Mohammed Shafiq

The Pastest PACES videos are really fantastic, especially the Neurology & BCC ones. The pdf discussions also greatly helped during revision. Practising the stations gave me great confidence to complete in the specified time. I strongly recommend Pastest to anyone who wishes to clear MRCP PACES with a good score. All the people involved have done a great job.

Deepa Anubhav

Highly recommended for PACES. You will have the ease to see all patients online at your own ease. Every penny well worth it. The videos are HD, the examination steps are systematic and the viva at the end is so informative. Thanks a lot Pastest! You have made it possible for me to pass at the first attempt at UK centre. I have attended no other course in the UK.

About the MRCP PACES exam


MRCP PACES (Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) is a clinical exam testing clinical knowledge and skills of doctors hoping to begin higher specialist training (ST3).

MRCP PACES Exam Format

The MRCP PACES exam consists of a ‘carousel’ containing five clinical stations. Each station is 20 minutes long and there is a 5 minute interval between stations. Two independent examiners oversee each PACES station where there is a patient with a given condition, or a surrogate patient.

See the MRCP(UK) website for the full MRCP PACES exam format.

The Royal College are updating the format of the exam from 2023/3 - read our blog for an update.

MRCP PACES Preparation

Our PACES subscription contains a variety of cases for each PACES station. The layout of the stations and the subject matter simulates the real exam allowing you to revise for a clinical exam online. As well as clinical videos our PACES preparation resource contains a variety of resources which help you to gain the theoretical knowledge needed to pass PACES. These include MRCP PACES tips for each station, role-play material which enables you to replicate the cases in each station, and MRCP PACES podcasts.

PACES Core Skills

Seven core skills are assessed in PACES: Physical Examination, Identifying Physical Signs, Clinical Communication, Differential Diagnosis, Clinical Judgement, Managing Patients’ Concerns, and Maintaining Patients’ Concerns. Use a variety of resources and real life practice to strengthen all these skills.

Carousel Stations

The five clinical stations you’ll encounter are: Respiratory & Abdominal, History Taking, Cardiovascular & Neurological, Communication Skills & Ethics, and Clinical Consultations. Split your revision and practice appropriately, and be sure to work on your weaker areas.
