Apply for a renewal of exam eligibility
If your eligibility for the exam leading to Royal College certification has expired after three years through failing the exams or by failing to appear at the exams, you may apply for a renewal of eligibility.
For further information on renewal of eligibility, please see Section 5.8 in the Policies and Procedures for Certification and Fellowship.
Receiving a severe fail result
Candidates whose exam performance is generally at least two standard deviations below the failure mark fall into the category of severe fail. These candidates will automatically be referred back to the Credentials Committee, who will decide if eligibility can continue or if further eligibility will be contingent on successful completion of a study plan or six months of residency training at the senior level.
For further information, please see Section 5.9 in the Policies and Procedures for Certification and Fellowship.
