COVID-19: Postponement of FFPMRCA Examinations

Published: 13/03/2020

As evidenced by developments over the last few days, it is likely that the NHS will have to manage increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in the weeks ahead.

The RCoA has carefully considered the potential impact on examinations, including the FFPMRCA. Regretfully the difficult decision has been made to postpone the FFPMRCA SOE examination on 31 March 2020. Candidates will be contacted individually by the RCoA exams department with information on transferring to the next SOE examination on the 13 October 2020. 

Please monitor our website and the shared ICM anaesthesia COVID-19 website for further updates.

As has been emphasised elsewhere, we urge everyone to look after their own wellbeing and that of the teams around them during what is likely to be a very difficult period of intensive work.
