All candidates must read the Examinations Regulations and Guidelines plus the relevant Regulations for their specialty before applying for an examination.

All candidates are allowed four attempts at each component of the examination. Any candidate who would like to sit an exam more than four times must get their Educational Supervisor (or equivalent) to complete and submit the forms below for the College Council. Each case will be considered by a Mitigating Circumstances Panel and the Director of Examinations before a case will be presented to Council.
