MRCEM OSCE - London - Exam Dates, Location and Fees

  • April 09, 2020

International doctors (IMGs) can sit the final MRCEM OSCE exam in three locations: the UK, India and Malaysia. 

Here we explore in brief the exam centres, dates, fees and how to apply online for the MRCEM OSCE exams in London (UK). 

Covid-19 & RCEM

The Royal College of Emergency Medicine took the difficult decision to cancel all events for the months of April, May and June following the escalation of the virus. As well as delay the rease of certain results.

As the UK and most of the world remain in some form of lockdown, the Royal College has not announced when it is expecting to open up its centres again in 2020. Understandably this will be tied into government advice and that of the WHO, whilst most examiners involved in the OSCE examinations will be tied into urgent clinical duties.

IMG Connect is keeping a very close eye on the examination & results schedule and will keep all our IMGs informed as soon as the College publishes some updates. You can find the updated exam schedule here
