Everything you need to know about the Part 1 MRCOG
If you're an exam candidate, check this section of the website regularly to keep up to date.
The booking window for our January MRCOG Part 1 and Part 2 exams will reopen at 2pm UK time today. The window had been temporarily paused as a small number of candidates had reported they were experiencing an issue completing their payments. We have completed our investigations and can confirm there is no error with the booking system, which is working correctly, and most users who attempted to complete payment have been able to do so. We understand that the small number of candidates affected were unable to complete their bookings due to their bank declining the payment, the payment connection to their bank taking too long causing a “time out”, or that the booking form had not been completed correctly.
Should any candidates experience similar problems once the booking window has reopened you may wish to use an alternative bank or credit card as the RCOG cannot control whether your bank will accept payment, or the connectivity of the payment portal with your bank. Please also ensure you complete the payment form in full before attempting to submit your payment. If any payment problems persist we would advise candidates to contact their bank for further advice and support. The RCOG is unable to help resolve unsuccessful payment transactions that are due to financial systems outside of our control.
Some dates in the application window were amended on 11 October 2021. This was due to a delay in the confirmation of test centre availability in a number of countries, as a consequence of the continued global impact of Covid-19.
