Welcome to 'The Birmingham Course', the leading online preparatory course for the Royal College of Psychiatrists Membership Examinations (MRCPsych). We have been providing comprehensive revision courses and mock exams for candidates who are preparing for the MRCPsych examinations since 2003. All our course material are based on the principles of evidence based revision and have been developed by our team of academics, clinicians, and college prizewinners.

We have gone for a comprehensive update of all our course material to ensure that our written and CASC courses match the new syllabus of the Royal college. From April 2015, the number of written papers has been reduced to two (Paper A and Paper B), and as expected the college have shuffled the topics across the two Papers. Paper A includes Papers A(i) and Papers A(ii).

The Online Courses for each of the papers include a comprehensive question bank containing both the 'best of five' & the 'Extended Matching' items in the format that the College currently prescribes. All the questions have concise explanations and the evidence base for the answers (references in the form of textbooks, journal articles, clinical guidelines etc). The question bank has over 4000 questions (BOFs and EMIs) and is expanding rapidly. It the largest question bank available for exam revision.

The changes to the syllabus that the college have done are not insignificant. We have had to review all our course material including themes from previous exams (2008 to 2014), which has led to extensive revisions to our courses. We constantly update the bank to reflect the themes from the College exams and recent developments in psychiatry.
