What is MRCP Part 1?

MRCP(UK) Part 1 is the first of three exams that need to be taken - and passed - to become a Member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP). The following exams are MRCP Part 2 Written and MRCP 2 PACES. 

MRCP Part 1 Exam Format

The MRCP(UK) Part 1 examination is split into two, three-hour papers taken on the same day. Each paper contains 100 'Best of Five' multiple choice questions.

Of the five answer options in each question, there is one correct answer and four incorrect answers (these are referred to as 'distractors' which are close enough to being the preferred option to be plausible). Each correct answer is awarded one mark; there is no negative marking.

How to apply

The exam takes place three times a year - in January, May and September - and costs £419 for UK candidates (£594 for International). Applications open two months before each exam - for a full timetable and further application and payment details visit the MRCP(UK) website.
