Update on MRCPsych Exams – A message from the President

Mar 17, 2020, 15:09 PM by RCPsych Exams Team
The paper B exam has been cancelled across all exam centres.

Update: Paper B cancelled across all exam centres.

Following the announcement on 16 March we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the paper B sitting on 31 March across all exam centres.

The Government is clear that people should not be travelling, or meeting in large groups and we have to respect their guidance.

Your fee will be refunded and your validity period extended. The College is urgently investigating alternative arrangements and will be in touch with candidates shortly.

This decision has been taken at an exceptionally challenging time, and has not been taken lightly.

I know how hard trainees will have worked for this and we were really hoping we could deliver it and I sincerely apologise for having to cancel.

Please look after yourself at this difficult time. Let me know if there is anything I or the College can do to help.

Professor Wendy Burn
