There has been a significant change to the FRCR 2A exams, with the first new sitting to take place on December 6th 2017.
The exam will change from a six modular exam to a single summative exam comprising of two papers taken on the same day, designed to assess knowledge and skills of candidates that underpin clinical radiology, demonstrating their competence and readiness to progress to the next stage of training.
Each paper will contain 120 single best answer questions and cover a broad range of the core curriculum. Candidates will be allocated 3 hours to answer the questions per paper.
Topics examined will include:
This NEW FRCR 2A COURSE will facilitate candidates in dealing with the new changes to the exam.
We will focus on the KEY areas/exam favourite topics of each module, starting with a short mock exam in SBA format for each module.
This format will be ideal in helping candidates become 'exam smart' by giving them tips and insight on how to tackle questions which act as discriminators between a candidate passing and failing.
The first day will comprise of Tips and Tricks to excel in the exam, followed by two mock exams to mimic real life. A large proportion of candidates found sitting two 3 hour long papers in one day tiring, and were not able to pace themselves or prepare themselves mentally for this challenge. This course is designed to mimic the real exam as much in style as it is in format - and thus you will have a fair idea of how to prepare yourself when it comes to the real deal. We will go through the paper and the key topics in the subsequent lectures following the exam. Candidates should get a flavour of what the real exam is like during the course so that there are no unexpected surprises on the real day!
