Pastest vs eMRCS vs OneExam for Preparation of MRCS Part A Exam


Getting many queries regarding the selection of the best MCQ/EMQ Online Question banks for MRCS Part A Preparation. The decision to select amongst these can be daunting as these courses are costly. While preparing for MRCS Exam, I came across unending list of sites that offer MRCS part A questions. Sharing my experience here on shortlisting the best site for MRCS online quesitons.

Listing down the comparison between Pastest vs OneExam and eMRCS below:

  • Pastest : Over 4,300 MRCS A exam-themed questions. Number of questions available is highest offering a broad coverage of most subject areas. Their website is better in terms of usability and looks.
  • eMRCS : Over 2,000 Single Best Answer and Extended Matching questions based on themes from previous exams. The questions are good quality and best approximation of real exam questions
  • OnExam : Over 3000 (1,700 single best answer questions, 1,300 extended matching items) and 2015 Mock Test
  • 123Doc : 2,117 MRCS Part A questions

If you can afford and are able to get the material online, using any two of these will be more than sufficient to pass MRCS part A. You can buy Pastest and any one other course on sharing basis between your friends. Pastest has a good coverage and most people use it in their preparation. I used Pastest and eMRCS  which were shared by two of us preparing for MRCS.

We often receive questions like the one below:

Is it mandatory to purchase emrcs online?? Can I survive without it?
Definitely you can pass without purchase online courses. Here are the substitutes for online MRCS question banks.  You can also search for offline old emrcs and pastest material too.
