How to claim exemption from the MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination

Unless full details of their qualifications appear in the current (annual) edition of the Medical Register of the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom, holders of the diplomas listed above must submit, along with the appropriate application form and other documentation (see Application Checklist):

• their original Medical Registration Certificate or their Diplomas of Primary Medical

Qualification;

• their postgraduate diplomas.

Irish Medical Registration Certificates do not give sufficient details of qualifications held and are therefore not acceptable.

Candidates, particularly those based outside the UK, are recommended to provide attested copies of any original documentation. Original documents will be returned as soon as possible after receipt but the MRCP(UK) Examinations Office cannot take responsibility for any items lost in transit.

Photocopies of certificates and/or official translations will only be accepted if they have been prepared and/or authenticated by one of the following:

• the issuing University or Medical School;

• a British Consulate or British Council outside the UK;

• the British Embassy;

• the British High Commission;

• the candidate’s own Embassy or High Commission in the United Kingdom;

• a Fellow or Member of the College or a Chair of the Examining Board of the award

body (verification of the Fellow or Member will be sought to ensure that they are affiliated with the issuing University/Medical School and the attested copy should be submitted with an accompanying official stamp/letter from the Fellow, Member or Chair).

Candidates wishing to claim exemption from the MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination must submit a paper application form.

How to enter the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Written Examination

Method of application

Candidates sitting in Riyadh can apply for the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Written Examination via the online or paper (manual) method.

The submission of the application form is in effect an application to register for the examination, for which the full examination fee will be incurred, irrespective of whether or not the application is complete. It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure that their application is completed by the required deadline.

In the case of paper applications, the application form(s), complete in every detail and accompanied by the appropriate fee and any other documents required, must reach the MRCP (UK) Central Office by 5 p.m. on the published closing date.

Cheques should be made payable to ‘The Royal College of Physicians’.

Candidates transferring fees from outside the UK should remember that banks deduct their charges from the sum being transferred. The Royal Colleges of Physicians must receive the full Examination fee in pounds Sterling, so candidates must themselves pay the bank charges.

Applying via paper (manual) method

Candidates applying via paper (manual) method must complete the appropriate form(s) which, together with the Examination Calendar, are available to download from the Examination website (www.mrcpuk.org). If for any reason you are unable to download a form, please contact the MRCP (UK) Central Office to which you must submit your application, and a form will be downloaded from the website and sent to you.

Applying via online method

Candidates claiming an exemption from the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Written Examination are unable to apply online and have to submit a paper application.

Other candidates may apply for the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Written Examinations online after setting up an online account.

Candidates who opt to make payment online using the credit/debit card method can complete the application process entirely online. Candidates who choose to pay by cheque or bank draft, however, are required to submit their e-Form along with their payment by post
