2021/1 diet of Part 2 written examination to move online for candidates sitting in the UK and international candidates who require the exam for career progression

As a consequence of the escalating pandemic and UK wide lockdown restrictions the decision has been taken to run the 2021/1 diet of the MRCP(UK) Part 2 written examination on 23 March completely online for candidates who intend to sit in the UK and those candidates in a select number of countries who need to sit the examination for their career progression. Candidates from the Republic of Ireland who had intended to sit the exam in Northern Ireland will also be able to apply to sit the examination online.

Applications for the 2021/1 diet opened on Monday 11 January and will close on Friday 22 January. 

Any candidates who have already applied to sit the exam in the UK will be transferred to the online exam. Any UK or international candidate who is unable to sit the online examination should request a reasonable adjustment here.

The Part 2 examination will continue to run in physical centres in all other countries as planned.
