MRCEM Success

Online training portal development

Online education web app: MRCEM Success is the brainchild of two doctors who recognised a surprising gap in the market. Twice a year doctors around the globe sit their MRCEM exams, a qualification in which allows them to work towards furthering their career in medicine. There are only two tests which occur six months apart and our clients wanted to create a facility that allowed candidates to sign up for revision exercises in preparation for the exam.

What was needed?
The project brief... Visit the website

There are a few other exam prep websites for the MRCEM qualification but most, in our client’s opinion, fall short. They had very fixed ideas about where the other websites were lacking and set out a very focused and detailed brief for a solution that refreshes the parts that other websites cannot reach. Users should have the ability to access 1000s of past questions from each section of the test, log scores, calculate averages, compile their own tests, take timed mock exams and compare their scores against other users.

What we considered
The Challenges... Visit the website

This website would have a global market so the website build would need to be robust enough to handle multiple users and to store a vast amount of saved user data. UX and user-friendliness were key considerations in the design of the site, as well as developing ‘a brand’. Adequate hosting was also going to be an issue for planning as bandwidth and resources could potentially be severely stretched once the site went live.

What we did
Our Solution... Visit the website

We created a website that was based around an excellent user interface. A main consideration was user retention and recommendation, therefore, we ensured that the website’s UX was slick and intuitive in order to encourage sign-ups and retain users. Membership of this site, potentially, has a short shelf-life if MRCEM candidates pass their exam so we had to consider that users would recommend the site to colleagues. The site has distinctive and individual branding and layout, a robust database system and we opted for scalable cloud hosting to ensure the stability of the site and prevent crashing through high demand and usage.

How it turned out
Outcomes... Visit the website

Online training portal development: The website is currently being used worldwide by MRCEM candidates for revision purposes. The site successfully plugs the gaps left by competitors and MRCEM Success have seen a high sign-up rate. On launch, the site featured revision for Part 1 of the MRCEM. Since launch we have integrated revision modules for subsequent parts of the MRCEM exams. A sound business idea combined with lovely design and a slick UX has resulted in this successful website.
