MRCEM OSCE application – 20 March 2023, 10am to 31 March 2023, 5pm (UK GMT):

Please note that we are changing our approval & payment process for our OSCE exams to improve the service we offer to candidates.

If there are more applicants for OSCE exams than the number of spaces available, candidates will be allocated using our Oversubscription Criteria.

We aim to give an outcome regarding your application approximately 4 weeks after the application window has closed. If you are allocated a space in the upcoming exam, we will email you with information on how to pay for your exam and will give details of the timeline to complete your payment. Please note that if your payment is not completed within that window, that exam space will be offered to the next candidate in order of the Oversubscription Criteria.

Please help us with our application approval process by ensuring your contact details (email address & address), employment history is up-to-date and your documents, such as internship & medical registration certificates (or equivalent), are valid and uploaded in your RCEM account. Eligibility criteria for the exam are available here.
