Part 3 MRCOG May 2018

Bookings for the May 2018 exam have now closed.

The College had to close booking for the May Part 3 MRCOG exam a few hours earlier than planned (original closing date and time was Thursday 8 March at 4pm UK time). This was due to significantly higher demand for the exam than in previous years, meaning we had reached capacity.
