Changes to MRCP(UK) Withdrawals Regulations

The regulations governing withdrawal from MRCP(UK) examinations will change from June 2024, ahead of the application period for the 2024/03 diets.

Candidates can now withdraw their application at any stage up to 48 hours before the examination without supporting evidence and will receive a refund of 60% of the fee, with 40% retained as an administrative charge.

Requests to withdraw after this stage must be supported by evidence of exceptional circumstances that prevented the candidate from sitting (e.g. illness) and should be submitted as soon as possible after the date of the examination. Any requests received at this stage will be reviewed by MRCP(UK).

Please see the updated MRCP(UK) regulations for further information on the process.
