Can i appear in MRCP part 2 first and then MRCP part 1??


Can I take part 2 before part 1 mrcpch


MRCP(UK) Part 1 Written must be taken and passed first.  Your 7 year eligibility period will begin on successfully passing MRCP(UK) Part 1 Written, you can then progress onto MRCP(UK) Part 2 Written and PACES and you take these two examinations in any order.

hai, i would like to ask . If i have mrcp ireland part 1 paper ,can i use the qualification to apply for mrcp uk part 3?


Hi, we do not offer any exemptions for any part of the MRCP(UK) diploma.


Hi, if someone is arab national has received arab board qualification and is consultant pulmonologist, but wants to come work in uk- should they directly take the Respiratory medicine SCE and will then be eligible to work in uk or they will need to take all the mrcp from scratch, I.e., part 1,2 and PACES before they're eligible for the SCE, to be able to work as a consultant in UK- Simply, is the SCE enough as a stand-alone qualification to work in UK?
Thank you
