I have used Pastest for preparing for the MRCPCH exams (FOP/TAS and AKP) and I would highly recommend it for candidates. It is without a doubt an essential tool to help you understand the questions that are going to potentially be asked in the actual exam. Very high quality information and a large number of questions available. I passed the examinations in the first attempt, all thanks to Pastest.
Pastest is very useful and reliable. It's a definite pass when you subscribe to Pastest and finish the questions in their question bank. All questions are very exam orientated and it gives you the feel of sitting for the real exam. I have recommended Pastest to many of my friends.
I am finding Pastest very user friendly and an excellent learning resource for MRCPCH. The podcasts and videos are also very helpful teaching and guiding resources. Thanks a million! :-)

I have attempted the MRCPCH exams several times and I have been failing.

Pastest helps you to understand the tricky part of the questions. Now I know why I have been failing. I totally recommend this for those who want to sit for MRCPCH.

MRCPCH Foundation of Practice (previously known as MRCPCH Part 1A) is one of the three theory examinations needed to become a Member of the Royal College of Paediatrics (MRCPCH). This theory examination is 2.5 hours long and is taken at a test centre on a computer. The MRCPCH FOP questions are in two formats: Single Best Answer (SBA) and Extended Matching Questions (EMQs). Each question includes a case history and may contain photographic material.
The MRCPCH FOP exam is an exam designed to test the knowledge of candidates in regards to providing clinical care for children. Essentially, the FOP exam is what decides if a candidate has reached the standard required of someone entering their chosen specialist field training. The FOP exam is also taken by GPs doing the DCH so will include questions that are more general practice-based.
The MRCPCH FOP exam typically consists of 70 SBAs and 10 EMQs, which cover a broad range of topics, including Cardiology, Child Development, Metabolism & Metabolic Medicine, and Neonatology.
The full exam syllabus can be found on the RCPCH website.
