About HIGHER FRCS

This website was developed by a general surgeon with an interest in teaching and education. Higher FRCS has been designed to reflect the exam as it actually is.

Higher FRCS has been developed by general surgeons for general surgeons.

We have designed questions that will help you revise and prepare you for taking the section 1 of the FRCS general surgery exam. The questions attempt to reflect the style of the exam and also use a question modelling style to help you use your knowledge and applying it to different questions and scenarios. We have used a wealth of experience and up to date guidelines from NICE and the national societies to provide you with the most contemporary surgical knowledge in preparation for the exam.

When we were preparing for the exam we used a lot of resources including the excellent websites like eFRCS, OnExamination and Surgery Online. We used multiple MCQ books but the reality is that the more questions you answer the more attuned your mind is to tackling the exam.

Revision On The Go

Abundance of Exams

Various exams covering all your needs, retake and revise as many times as you like.

Even after we used all the resources available we felt very unprepared to take part 1 and this website aims to plug that gap. This in combination with the other resources including the newer ones like frcs companion will help you better prepare for the exam.

We always believe that being open and honest with people is the most important aspect to life and this question bank is designed to give you a true reflection of the exam as we experienced it in its style and difficulty.

We want this resource to be for you and are really open to suggestions on how to improve our services and hope you will engage with us too.

We have created a comprehensive package of other resources to help you in your success.

These include our Twitter feed @HFrcs on twitter where we post a question every fortnight or so to give you some insight into the questioning style and also what your colleagues would answer too!

We have created an Instagram community (h_frcs), a Facebook page and group with regular updates.

For those of you at the beginning of your revision we have an excellent starter course (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/frcs-section-1-tips-and-techniques-tickets-158506554371?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch) run monthly where we go through areas such as cancer protocols and the application process. After the course we also distribute a whole section of notes and resources that you can use saving you weeks of initial preparation and looking for good resources – we have done that hard work for you!
