Re-starting Examination Activity: Update

We are now accepting applications for examinations to be held in September 2020 onwards as per the advertised opening/closing dates. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation we are currently working as a College, and in conjunction with our Intercollegiate partners, to identify ways to continue to deliver examinations whilst adhering to the relevant Government guidance. The safety of our candidates, examiners and staff is our key priority.

We are now accepting applications for examinations to be held in September 2020 onwards as per the advertised opening/closing dates. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation we are currently working as a College, and in conjunction with our Intercollegiate partners, to identify ways to continue to deliver examinations whilst adhering to the relevant Government guidance. The safety of our candidates, examiners and staff is our key priority.

We want to provide as much certainty as we can to all of our candidates, but absolute certainty is just not possible as official guidance continues to change on gatherings, social distancing, and travel restrictions. In addition, we are conscious that guidance will differ from country to country.

Updates will be published on each of the examinations as they become available. Please visit the appropriate examination pages on our website for updates on the exam you are interested in. When you apply for an exam, we will keep you updated on the planned approach for that exam and will share key dates for final decisions, subject to further changes in government restrictions. We would not advise that any travel or accommodation is booked until final information has been issued.

Any enquiries should be directed to the relevant examination email address shown on the web pages, or to exams@rcpsg.ac.uk
