Exam dates and fees

As a consequence of the ongoing global COVID-19 situation, the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK has taken the extremely difficult but necessary decision to cancel all MRCP(UK) examinations in the UK and internationally until September 2020. Please click here for more information.

Dates for the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Clinical (PACES) Examination are available below. Details are correct at the time of publication but the MRCP(UK) Central Office reserves the right to change these at any time. Please note that examination dates can fall on any day during the assessment period, including Saturdays and Sundays.

Applications made outside the opening and closing dates will not be accepted. Find out how to apply by viewing the application information.

Admission documents, containing your allocated examination date, time and location will be sent a minimum six weeks in advance of your examination date.

You can find out how and when to view your PACES result by visiting the results page.
