Recorded Consultation Assessment (RCA)

Apply for the RCA exam.

All dates and times may be subject to change. Notice of any changes will be given at the earliest opportunity.

Due to high demand for the March RCA, and in order to ensure no trainees have to delay, the RCGP have agreed with key stakeholders to add further capacity to the end of the exam. 

Therefore we have made the following changes to dates for the March RCA. 

Assessment Period: 13 March – 8 April 2021
Results published:15 April at 5pm

We are anticipating that the May RCA may also have large numbers and we may need to follow similar action as a result. We will confirm and update the website once bookings are completed.

* Subject to change if large demand for places

** We have agreed with key stakeholders that there will be a small, restricted diet in July for those trainees who delayed sitting the RCA until March due to COVID pressures, are unsuccessful in March, and who would otherwise not have the chance to re-sit prior to their CCT date. Bookings will be restricted to named trainees, identified by their Deaneries. 

Deaneries will provide the RCGP with priority lists following the release of March results on 15 April. Please do not contact RCGP exams team as we will not be able to advise you on this matter. Any queries need to be raised with your deanery team via your TPDs.
