Candidates who are due to sit the PACES 2018/02 examination may be aware that results may not be confirmed until after the upcoming application periods have closed.
If you think you will want to sit PACES during 29 September – 2 December 2018, should you be unsuccessful in your latest attempt, you are permitted to submit a provisional application. This should be done in the usual manner.
The International application period is 4 – 18 June 2018.
The UK application period is 23 July – 6 August 2018.
Any application you choose to submit will be subject to all of the usual eligibility rules, as stated in the MRCP(UK) Regulations and Information for Candidates.
You are permitted to submit an application to the Edinburgh, Glasgow or London Colleges.
MRCP(UK) Central Office will monitor results for the 2018/02 diet as they are released and any candidates who are successful and have submitted a provisional application to any of the three Colleges will have their application automatically removed. Any candidates in this situation who have already had fees processed will receive a full refund.
Any candidates who are unsuccessful in their latest attempt will have their submitted provisional application processed the same as any other applicant for PACES running during 29 September – 2 December 2018 period.
Some PACES applicants will not receive notification of the outcome of their application until after the application period closing date. In these cases only, candidates who wish to withdraw and remain eligible to receive a 90% refund must withdraw within one week of the advertised closing date or one week from the date on the email offering a PACES place (whichever is the later).
