*July results: to process Annual Review of Competence Progression results and decisions rapidly, the marking of candidates' recordings will be randomised into two groups. This is why we have two different dates for the July results. Candidates will be told which date applies to them. We regret that it is not possible for a candidate to ask to be in a particular group for a date of publication of results.

Assessment dates will be allocated according to the trainee's due date of CCT and will not be changeable.

For eligibility to sit the RCA please refer to the RCA policy document (345 KB PDF).

Future RCA dates will be confirmed in due course.
