Exam Pattern

MRCOG Part 3 

The Part 3 exam is a clinical assessment that tests 15 core Knowledge Areas in 5 core skill domains, to assess the candidates’ clinical competencies. The Clinical Skills Knowledge Area is common to all tasks, and the rest of the 14 Areas are assessed in 14 tasks (of 12 minutes each – 2minutes reading time +10 mins actual task) in the following types:

  • Simulated patients’ tasks – involve the candidate interacting with an actor who has been trained and fully briefed in the role she/he is to play. The actor will know all the relevant details pertaining to the case and will have some scripted questions to prompt if needed.
  • Colleague tasks ( Teaching Task) – You will be assessed on your ability to teach your junior colleagues. You will also be tested on workplace and workforce issues -like bullying and undermining.
  • Lay Examiner task – A trained Lay Examiner will feature on 4 of the 14 tasks, assessing the domains of communication, patient safety and information gathering from the perspective of the patient.
  • Structured discussion tasks involve the candidate interacting directly with a clinical examiner. The examiner will have detailed instructions about the task and a list of questions that they can use to prompt the candidate or to move the task on to ensure that the candidate does not run out of time. The examiner may give the candidate further information as the scenario evolves and then ask further questions.
  • Linked tasks where the second task is connected to the first. Candidates will be expected to build on the knowledge acquired in the first task. There may also be tasks where candidates are required to undertake a writing task.
