Final FRCR part 2A

Final FRCR part 2A

There are two sittings of the part 2A exam each year; December and June. There are six different venues within the UK in which the exam can be sat, as well as two overseas venues; Hong Kong and Singapore.

This consists of two papers, each containing 120 single best answer questions, taken on the same day. Each paper lasts for three hours and the scores from both are combined to give a single mark. It is not possible to pass one paper at a time.

Candidates will not be asked to select the correct TNM staging but will be expected to know key features in the management of each of the pertinent cancers (for example, in lung cancer imaging it is important to examine the images for the presence of a potential adrenal metastasis).

Within one exam the same topic may be tested in two or more questions.
