Online Question Bank For
The FRCS General Surgery Exam

Welcome to Higher FRCS

Thank you for visiting Higher FRCS and taking time to explore our website.

We are an online question bank of 1000 questions. We are here to help you, the senior surgical apprentice get through the Section 1 of the FRCS General Surgery Exam.

The Section 1 exam is comprised of 2 papers with 120 single best answers (SBAs). Each paper will be 2 hours and 15 minutes long (https://www.jcie.org.uk). We have therefore focussed on SBAs to concentrate your thinking and help you practice questions in the style of the exam. We are currently in the process of developing an image bank to help you revise to image-based questions too.

The website has been designed to aid your revision by dividing questions into categories. Having done the exam recently I hope this website reflects the exam as best as possible and will act as a useful adjunct to the excellent resources already out there. We also run monthly starter classes to kickstart your revision so please follow us on Twitter @HFrcs.
