Changes to the MRCEM SBA application period

29 April 2022

RCEM has worked closely with our exam delivery partner, Pearson VUE, to introduce new booking windows for all MRCEM & FRCEM written exams.

These new booking windows will help us to improve the booking process for candidates and are separate to our candidate application periods, which can be found on our website. Booking windows will open shortly after our application periods and will close approximately four weeks before the exam date.

Once a candidate’s application has been approved, their details will be shared with Pearson VUE who will then email candidates directly with booking instructions. Pearson VUE advise that the earlier a candidate books their test once the booking window is open, the greater the chance of a space at their preferred centre being available.

Any candidate who has not booked their exam space by the time the booking window has closed will automatically be allocated to the nearest available test centre to the home address in their online account.
