The MRCEM Intermediate exam is a Single Best Answer (SBA) paper, replacing the FRCEM Intermediate SAQ. The exam comprises 180 questions to be answered in four hours, presented as two 90 question papers with two hours per paper sat on the same day. The first sitting of the MRCEM Intermediate is on 14th September 2021.
All MRCEM components are blueprinted to the New RCEM Curriculum – focussing on Speciality Learning Outcomes (SLOs) 1-7 and 9. The SLOs and the capabilities relevant to each SLO are set out in the Assessment Blueprint. The MRCEM Intermediate exam samples the New Clinical Syllabus and ensures a sound understanding of the full range of conditions and presentations that may present to the ED. The exam samples how the trainee synthesises and interprets data and clinical findings to make decisions and inform management plans.
