About the Examinations Unit
The Examinations Unit is responsible for the
organisation of the College’s written and clinical MRCPsych
Examinations. Membership of the College is the accepted
qualification for entry into higher training in psychiatry.
The MRCPsych Examinations consist of three
Written Papers: Papers, 1, 2 and 3, and the Clinical Assessment of
Skills and Competencies (CASC).
The Examinations Unit is responsible for
processing candidate enquiries, applications, entry and allocation
to examination centres and the publication of final results. The
Examinations Unit is also responsible for the recruitment,
induction and training of College examiners.
The question papers for the Examinations are
prepared by the Panels responsible for each paper. All results are
monitored and determined by the Examinations Sub-Committee. Regular
reports are presented to the Education, Training and Standards
Committee to ensure that standards are maintained.
The Head of Examinations Operations is
responsible for the overall management and delivery of the Unit’s
activities and manages the Examinations team.
