This is a computer based examination and only candidates who have been declared eligible to sit the PRES (after having completed the Level 1 assessment) are eligible for PRES Level 2. This level applies to certain applicants for trainee specialist registration and general registration only. This examination tests the candidate factual knowledge in the main clinical disciplines and consists of an MCQ examination in clinical disciplines of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Psychiatry, Surgery, and Medicine/General Practice. Duration of the exam is 150 minutes with 60 questions. Each question consists of a stem followed by 5 statements therefore there are 300 questions in total. The Level 2 is negatively marked, a correct answer gains one mark (+1) and incorrect answer loses one mark (-1) unanswered question does not gain or lose any mark (0). Currently, the pass mark for Level 2 is set at 45% or 135 correctly answered questions out of 300 questions, with negative marking applying. Level 2 is available electronically at centres in Egypt, India, Pakistan and in Ireland. Once a medical practitioner has been declared eligible to sit Level 2, he/she will be provided with details of how and where to schedule their examination. The examination must be passed within two years from the date of a candidate being declared eligible.

The Medical Council imposes a limit of three attempts at any Level of the examinations. If a candidate is unsuccessful in their Level 2, they must allow six weeks to lapse from their previous attempt before they are eligible to schedule/book their next Level 2. This exam is now being phased out as per recent amendments made by the Council.
