Notice of withdrawal from any part of the Specialty Certificate Examination must be given in writing to the Specialty Certificate Examination Office. Candidates are asked to quote their RCP Code Number, full name and date of birth in their withdrawal notice. Only written requests to withdraw will be accepted as official withdrawal requests. For example, candidates who are informed that they have submitted incomplete applications and are asked to complete them will not be considered as withdrawn from the Specialty Certificate Examination. If they do not respond to such requests for information they will incur the full fee.
Candidates who submit their withdrawal request on or before the closing date of that respective Specialty Certificate Examination will be refunded 90% of the fee paid. Where possible this refund will be paid in the same way as the original payment was made. Refunds will not be made where candidates submit their withdrawal request after the closing date.
