The MRCPI General Medicine Part II Written exam consists of two papers, each containing 75 Single Best Answer questions about the diagnosis and management of patients.
The vignettes (clinical scenarios) in Part II questions are generally longer and more descriptive than in the Part I examination. Interpretation of investigation and quick data analysis are required. There are no basic science questions.
The exam lasts five hours in total; each paper is 2.5 hours long. Currently there is a 90-minute break between papers (applicable for remote invigilation).
There is no negative marking and each question is equally weighted so we advise you to attempt all questions.
GM Part II Written is now held online, via remote invigilation. Candidates may sit the exam anywhere in the world, provided they have a reliable internet connection.
