MRCEM OSCE exam – India centres, dates & fees

  • April 15, 2020

International doctors can sit the MRCEM OSCE in the UK, Kuala Lumpur and India.

India exam centres for 2020 are to be held in Kuchi & Hyderabad, however these are subject to change due to Covid-19. Here we explore the exam centres, dates, fees and how to apply online for the MRCEM OSCE exams in india. 

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
