Please be assured that payment is not required at the application stage during the 2024/01 and 2024/02 diets as previous diet results will still be pending to be released. In relation to the most recent diet of 2023/03, these results are expected to be released from 4 December onwards. More information can be found here.
The MRCP colleges have made the decision to turn off the payment option for 2024/01 and 2024/02 due to the number of provisional applications expected from previous diet applicants whilst they await their results; 2023/03 results being most recent.
Payment will be made at a later stage after the application period closes. No payment will be made by any candidate (UK-based or Internationally based) during the application period. When candidates have been informed if they have been accepted into the PACES exam, their college of entry will get in touch directly with further information and instructions on how to pay for their exam seat.
MRCP profiles may state a message along the lines of: ‘A payment was unsuccessful, please get in touch with your college of entry to make a payment’ – we would advise to disregard this message. Our IT team are currently investigating this auto-generated system messaging to avoid any further confusion.
Candidates should be able to check their Exam History to see their most recent application being received.
Applications will be reviewed alongside the 2024/01 prioritisation criteria before candidates are contacted directly by your college of entry to make a payment.
We hope this clarifies any concerns and we apologise for any confusion caused.
