The Booking Window for MRCP PACES June – August 2024 Exams Is Closing Soon: Things to Take Note for International Medical Aspirants!

Are you an international medical aspirant preparing for the upcoming MRCP PACES exam? Here is an important announcement for you. The Royal College of Physicians has announced the application closing dates for MRCP PACES June-August 2024 exams. As per the latest updates from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), MRCP PACES aspirants can start submitting their applications until February 26, 2024.


The third and final step in gaining proud membership of the RCP, the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Clinical Examination (Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills – PACES) is designed to test the clinical knowledge and skills of trainee doctors hoping to enter higher specialist training (ST3). You must have passed the Part 1 written exam within the last 7 years before taking PACES. The exam sets rigorous standards to ensure your competence across a range of skills, ensuring you are ready to provide a high standard of care to patients.

What’s involved in PACES?

You are assessed on your ability to carry out essential clinical skills. This half-day examination takes place in a clinical setting (hospital or clinical skills center). There are five clinical stations where there are either patients with a given condition or trained stand-ins (surrogates). At each station, there are two independent examiners who will observe and evaluate the candidates’ performance.

Things to take note while applying!

Candidates can submit their applications through the MRCP (UK) application website. Once candidates successfully confirm their booking, they will receive an admission document containing information, including the examination date and location. Remember, RCP has the right to make changes in the exam dates if necessary. The assessment duration for the upcoming MRCP exams falls between June to August. The exam dates can fall on any day during the assessment period, including Saturdays and Sundays.

If you are trying to qualify for the MRCP PACES exam, make sure you submit the application within the closing date. Any application sent after February 26 will not be accepted by RCP. Therefore, if you aspire to pursue a career as a physician in the UK, make sure to submit your application on time.
