New Format

From July 2003, the format for the TRAS was changed. The new format comprises the following:

Part I Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ)

Part II English Language Component (IELTS)

Part III Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE)

Under the new format candidates will be able sit Part I (MCQ) in Ireland or overseas.

Once fully operational, candidates will only need to travel to Ireland to sit Part III

The new format OSCE incorporates additional dedicated stations to replace the Oral component.
Candidates must pass Part I and Part II (IELTS) before sitting Part III.

It is hoped that TRAS Part I will be offered at test centres in Ireland and overseas, by a computer-based testing services provider, nominated by the Medical Council.

Dates for the next sitting of Part I will be posted on the website as soon as they are available.

A pass in TRAS Part I (MCQ) will remain valid for a period of two years. A pass in Part II (IELTS), will also be valid for two years and must be valid on the date of sitting

Candidates who pass Part III will be deemed eligible to apply for temporary registration.
Candidates will be required to pay the fees for Part II (IELTS) (currently €132 with a €15 Saturday supplement in Ireland) directly to the IELTS centre. The fee for the medical component will be paid in two parts, TRAS Part I will be €105 and only
candidates who are permitted to proceed to TRAS Part III will be required to pay the remainder, currently €407.90, for the OSCE component.
