The Medibuddy MRCS Part B Question Bank. The final hurdle!

Ensure you pass MRCS Part B first time with the Medibuddy MRCS Part B Question Bank.

“I really like the dashboard, it is easy for me to flag questions I am unsure about, so I can come back to them later”
“I have used a couple of Medibuddy resources now and I am always really impressed, thank you!”

You are so close to dropping that pesky 'Dr' title and gaining Royal College of Surgeons membership.

You'll receive complimentary tea and coffee in the RCS member's lounge. The anaesthetists will no longer roll their eyes and start frantically checking their watches when they see your name on the OR board.

More importantly, you’ll be able to apply for a registrar post and may finally get to do some actual operating!

The MRCS Part B exam is difficult, but with the proper preparation, it is passable. While you can retake the exam, it is expensive (currently £1047 with the RCSEng!), and no one wants to spend even more time revising for a resit.

We recommend starting your MRCS Part B preparation early, ensuring you are covering the complete syllabus and not neglecting your communication skills!

We provide over 1800 questions and answers across 190 scenarios, covering all aspects of the MRCS Part B exam syllabus, including mark schemes and station summaries, to aid your revision.

All of our questions have been written by surgeons specifically for the MRCS Part B exam, and our easy-to-use dashboard will help you navigate through them so you can see which questions you have completed and which you need to go back to.

Our goal is to ensure you are thoroughly prepared for your exam and help you get the maximum score you can!

MRCS Part B: Exam Structure

The OSCE is split into 17 examined stations, of 9 minutes each. It is the second and final examination required to gain membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS). It assesses whether a surgical trainee has the correct knowledge, skills and attributes to progress beyond basic training to higher levels of specialist surgical training.

To keep things simple, we have split our question bank into the following sections; working through these will ensure you have covered all sections of the syllabus:

  • Surgical Anatomy
  • Surgical Pathology
  • Critical Care and Surgical Science
  • Physical Examination
  • Procedural Skills
  • History Taking
  • Giving and Receiving Information

Surgical Anatomy and Surgical Pathology

This section of our MRCS Part B question bank will aid you in revising for the Anatomy and Surgical Pathology stations. There are 5 of these within the MRCS Part B, and we will help you prepare, ensuring you can demonstrate your “Knowledge of Anatomy and Surgical Pathology”.

Critical Care and Surgical Science

There are 3 stations on Applied Surgical Science and Critical Care within the MRCS Part B exam. We provide 25 stations with clear questions, answers, explanations, and a mark scheme so you can keep track of your progress. These questions will help you demonstrate your “Knowledge of Applied Surgical Science and Critical Care”.

Physical Examination and Procedural Skills

Clinical and Procedural skills make up 5 stations of the MRCS Part B exam. We provide over 40 stations for you to work through so that you can demonstrate your skills within these stations.

Communication Skills: History Taking and Giving and Receiving Information

Communication Skills make up 4 stations of the exam. Remember, your communication skills will be assessed in all stations, not just the communication skills station, so it is essential to practise these as much as you would the other areas of the exam to ensure these come naturally. We have split communication skills into History Taking and Giving and Receiving Information to ensure you are ready for any scenario. Our scenarios cover numerous clinical concerns, providing guidance on what questions to ask and what information to give.

Highly Curated Questions

We’ve worked incredibly hard to ensure our questions are as close to the exam as possible. Authored by experienced surgeons, our questions cover all the topics in the syllabus, from the basics to the random left-field questions that you can’t believe the examiners even thought of, let alone included!

Revise for your MRCS Part B on the go!

As Junior Doctors ourselves, we know that balancing working and studying, as well as life, can be difficult! That’s why we have created the Medibuddy app, so you can access your MRCS Part B revision on the go, allowing you to revise when you can!

A resource you can trust

The Medibuddy team has been creating educational resources for medical students and doctors for years. We’ve helped thousands of students score highly in exams and interviews and put all that experience into our MRCS Part B question bank.

We stay current on all the latest educational science, so you can be sure that our techniques are state of the art.

We respond to feedback

We listen to what you say and respond to feedback. If you don’t like an explanation, we’ll change it. If you think a question is a dud, we’ll delete it.

We even go the extra mile and respond to feedback directly.

Our question bank is constantly evolving

The MRCS Part B changes every year. They are constantly adding and removing questions to keep it up to date. We take the same approach with our question bank.

After every exam cycle, we email all our users asking for feedback on how closely our questions matched the exam style. (Please reply; it really does help us out!)

If we find we’re missing anything, we add it. If they stop asking a specific style of question, we remove it.

Take your MRCS Part B preparation to the next level!
