The new PACES23 format of the examination tests the same clinical skills, and there are still five stations. However, some of the encounters have changed. The changes in the new carousel have been implemented to improve the validity and reliability of this clinical examination. Detailed information on the format is available on the MRCP(UK) website.
There are several online resources on offer to help candidates and examiners prepare for the exam in its new format, which can be found on:
To further help candidates get the best out of the exam, our College also provides an online preparation course, which can be found at MRCP(UK) PACES23: Online Preparation.
We warmly wish all PACES candidates every success in the upcoming diet.
