Currency of examinations

The currency of examinations - Where trainees enter an approved training programme and wish to record previously undertaken exams in their chosen specialty, the RCR will adopt the guidance of the GMC. The GMC guidance on the currency of exams states:

"An examination may be taken before the candidate enters the relevant GMC-approved training programme or when they are on a break in the programme. In this scenario, the pass will be considered current as long as the candidate enters or re-enters the programme within seven years of passing the examination and satisfies any other currency requirements determined by the relevant royal college or faculty."


Regional Specialty Advisers

Regional Specialty Advisers perform a vital role in assuring, on behalf of the RCR, that national standards for training, curriculum delivery, and workplace-based assessment are maintained.
