  • Subscribed for both Part A and B (OSCEs) preparation and I have passed my MRCS. Harold Ellis lecture videos were just awesome.

  • As a final year medical student i used Pastest for the SJT, the PSA and am currently using it for my multi choice papers and OSCE's. There is a tremendous amount of questions to get stuck into for all of these papers and they really built my confidence during the revision periods. I was able to find out what my strong and weak areas were and could therefore prioritize my topics to study.

5 things you need to know about the MRCS Part B OSCE exam:

Be Aware

There are 18 examined stations in the Objective Structured Clinical Exam. Many candidates can feel as though the amount of information they have to learn, compared to how much time they have, doesn’t match up, and it overwhelms them. Be thorough and make a study schedule that breaks up the topics well, so as to cover all your bases.

Applied Knowledge & Skills

The 18 stations you’ll encounter in the MRCS Part B OSCE exam will examine a range of broad content areas. In Applied Knowledge, this could be anatomy or critical care, and in Applied Skills, this could be communication skills, or history taking. Be prepared, and challenge your revision to cover all applied content.

Content & Competency

The Part B OSCE covers four content areas, and four domains. The content includes anatomy, surgical pathology, applied surgical science, and critical care. The domains include knowledge, skills, competencies, and professional characteristics. Any competent surgeon encompasses all these characteristics and skills, so make sure you do, too.

Good Medical Practice

Bear in mind that the General Medical Council’s Good Medical Practice guide contains the domains listed above, which make you a competent surgeon. The OSCE is designed to test every aspect of you as a professional and competent surgeon, so pay attention to these.

Start Preparation Early

Start early, and make sure you allow enough time for your preparation. There are so many topics to cover, and so little time to deliver your knowledge, that the only way to ensure you revise enough is by starting as early as possible. This was also the top piece of advice from former OSCE candidates, so take it on board, and revise well in advance.
