How to book the DRCOG exam

Bookings for DRCOG exams are only open for a certain period of time.

Please check the exam calendar and venues page for opening and closing dates, and booking links when exam applications are open.


Using your account

If you don’t already have an account with the RCOG website, first please register with the RCOG website.

  • When registering with the website, please enter "Dr" under Title.
  • Your name must match the name on your degree certificate. Please enter your first name (given name) and your last name (family name) the same way.
  • Keep a note of your RCOG College Number (6 digits), shown on your "My Account" page.

If you already have an account with the RCOG website, you must use that same account.



To take the DRCOG exam, you must be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) or the Medical Council of Ireland (MCI).

You must ensure your GMC or MCI number is entered in your account under "My Details", before booking the exam.

Full requirements for the exam are under DRCOG Regulations.
