Examinations

In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, and the move in the UK to the ‘delay’ phase of managing the outbreak, the College has taken the hard decision to defer all of our spring examinations.

The examinations will be rescheduled later in the year. We will stay in touch with candidates and examiners regarding dates and arrangements.

Read College President Professor Jo Martin's full statement on the situation.

The College sets the standard for the postgraduate pathology examinations in the UK. It also has a number of Part 1 overseas examination centres to meet the demand from international medical graduates who aspire to become Fellows of the College.    

The College develops and delivers the FRCPath, Diploma and Certificate examinations which are offered across 17 pathology specialties, relying on the ongoing support of our Fellows.
