NOTE: The Intercollegiate Specialty Examination in General Surgery consists of two parts. The first part comprises a two hour multiple choice paper and a further two hour paper using extended matching questions. The second part is a clinical and oral examination.

Observers attend all sessions but will not be examined in the practice clinicals and vivas.
