How to apply and book your place on the Part 2 MRCOG exam

  • In order to be eligible to sit the MRCOG Part 2 exam, candidates must first have sat and passed the MRCOG Part 1 exam.
  • Candidates must also satisfy eligibility requirements regarding currency and attempts, as stipulated in the Exam Regulations.

How to book a place on the MRCOG Part 2 exam

1. Expression of Interest

For an opportunity to book into available spaces on the next MRCOG Part 2 exam, candidates must first complete an Expression of Interest form, within the required deadline for each exam. Please check the ‘Calendar and Fees’ section of the ‘Book an exam’ page for details of timelines for upcoming exams.

A candidate must submit a new Expression of Interest form ahead of each exam sitting they would like an opportunity to book a place. Forms submitted for an opportunity to book a place on previous exams will not be valid.

2. Search and book into available Pearson VUE test centres

Eligible candidates who have successfully submitted an Expression of Interest form will receive an email on the opening of the application window with instructions on how to book an exam place at available Pearson VUE test centres.
