MRCOG Part 2: July 2021 – Booking update

9 April 2021

Due to a technical issue with our booking system for the upcoming July 2021 examinations, we have had to pause bookings for new applicants. We have been working with our system developers to resolve the issue, however, we are unable to continue the booking process via the current format.

Following an urgent review, we have taken the decision to use an alternative mechanism to provide candidates with an opportunity to continue to book a place for the July 2021 exams.

We will be emailing eligible candidates on Friday 9 April 2021 to provide a booking token, with instructions, to enable candidates to have an opportunity to book an available exam slot.

Bookings will resume at 9am UK time on Tuesday 13 April 2021. Once the window has opened, eligible candidates will need to follow the booking instructions and use the tokens received for an opportunity to book into the available places.

The booking window will be extended and will now close at 5pm UK time on Tuesday 20 April 2021.

Revised timeline

Friday 9 April 2021 Eligible candidates will receive a booking token and instructions by email*
Tuesday 13 April 2021 Bookings open at 9am UK time
Tuesday 20 April 2021 Bookings close at 5pm UK time

* If you do not receive an email with the booking token on Friday 9 April 2021, and believe you are eligible to sit the exam, please contact by no later than 10am UK time on Monday 12 April 2021.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience.
