We are mindful of the potential impact of the COVID-19 Omicron variant on PACES examinations in the early part of 2022. All spaces for the 2022/1 diet have now been filled and we cannot accommodate any changes at this time. As spaces become available they will be offered out to candidates on the waiting list. Currently, the exams are still scheduled to go ahead and the examination departments from RCPE, RCPSG and RCP are in close contact with their host centres to consider what contingency measures may be required in light of this new variant.
The situation will be closely monitored over the Festive period and into January. We recognise that this will be a stressful time for candidates and will aim to communicate with updated information at the earliest opportunity. The safety and wellbeing of everyone attending our exam venues remains our paramount concern.
