Assalam o alaikum,
I`m a graduate of RMC
I find this forum extremely helpful ...the way u ppl are helping out others is commendable...Its a Sadqa Jariah.May Allah bless u all and alleviate your problems....

I have few Qs and pls guide me

i have plans about taking MRCP part1 for which i`ve gathered some info but still there are some Qs
To my knowledge there are 2 types of exam edinburgh MRCP and ireland (MRCPI)
on diffent forums its not mentioned which 1 they r speaking of.

Can some1 guide me which 1 is easier since i have a married life with a kid.I live in UAE so are the exam centres different?

The course books OHCM, kalra, etc plus the site onexamination are these for MRCP Ireland also?

Regarding part 2 ireland written and Paces which 1 can be taken overseas?

pls guide me

Well MRCPI stands for the Irish MRCP. MRCP-UK includes Edinburgh, London and Glasgow offices though the central is the one in London. Irish MRCP is easier than the UK one although the pass mark is usually higher for it. Irish one includes true/false and best of five type MCQs while the UK one consisits of best of five type MCQs only. Even in terms of the final clinical part, I found alot of ppl who were of the view that Irish clinical part is easier than the UK PACES. UK has alot of overseas centers for PACES. I think you have got a couple of them already in the UAE ( Dubai & Al-Ain )

The books stay the same for both of them. i.e. Kalra, OHCM ( where Kalra lacks ), onexamination.com, Easterbrooks for the basic sciences.

Well am not very much sure about the Irish clinical part, but as far as I recall and as per the last info which I had, Irish clinical part is conducted only in Ireland. Not very much sure about the part 2 written though. You might wanna check out the website.

nothing is easy dear....you have to study for both....weightage wise they are equal.now a days you can even take PACES before Part 2 or 1 if you have sufficient clinical experience.
try mrcp.com for booking a preparatory course even in UAE.
best of luck
