How to prepare for the MRCPI exams?

When working in a busy clinical job with acute medical take, you should allow three to four months to prepare for MRCPI Part I.

When you're preparing your study plan, make sure to refer to the curriculum for Basic Specialist Training in General Internal Medicine, as the MRCPI in General Medicine is based on this curriculum. It serves as a 'blueprint' for the exam.

You should practise Single Best Answer questions by using books or online resources.

What is remote invigilation?

All our written examinations will be delivered by remote invigilation. You sit the same examination (structure, format and length) online, but in a quiet, secure place of your choosing. Instead of travelling to an examination centre and sitting the computer-based examination with other candidates, you do the same test as originally planned, but at your own computer – e.g. at home or at work. Candidates are supervised remotely by invigilators throughout the examination. A quiet, secure environment means:
· A room to which you have exclusive access (single occupancy - not shared)
· A room that does not have integrated security cameras, or any recording equipment, other than the webcam on your PC or laptop
· You are confident you will not be disturbed during the examination, e.g. by traffic, construction work, or people
