Amendment to MRCS Regulations

With effect from the April 2013 diet, and in accordance with guidance issued by the United Kingdom General Medical Council, candidates will no longer have unlimited attempts at Part A of the MRCS examination. The regulations have been amended to allow candidates 6 attempts only at Part A (reg 2.1.6)

Dear candidates,

The GMC has agreed that doctors who are already in specialty training, or who enter specialty training by 31 October 2013 will be able to have any valid passes in previously approved national professional examinations counted towards a CCT, even if they were obtained outside approved training.
