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 an exam place. Forms submitted for an opportunity to book a place on previous exams will not be valid.

Please check carefully and make sure your details are correct before submitting your form.

Requirements

  • Candidates must be eligible and have submitted an Expression of Interest within the required deadline for each exam.

  • It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that their College account number and email address provided in this form are correct and match their personal RCOG account information. If any details provided in this form do not meet this requirement, you will not be eligible to book a place on the next exam.
  • Once a candidate has submitted the form they will be presented with a confirmation screen on their internet browser. We recommend candidates take a screenshot of this confirmation screen for their records. Please note, an email confirmation will not be sent upon form submission.
  • 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.
