Summer RCA Examination

We want to reiterate that there will be no RCA between May and August. There was never a summer Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA), and the RCA summer exams in 2020 and 2021 were provided as emergency measures so that trainees could continue to complete their training at the start of the pandemic.

Results of the April 2022 diet will be published on 9 June (subject to change if large demand for places), and then the next diet will begin in September 2022. Please talk to your deanery colleagues to ensure you factor this into your plans.

There are very good reasons why we are not able to run summer exams. The main one is that the demand is very low, and this was evident in the take up for the emergency RCA diet ran in July 2021. It is important in setting the grade boundaries for the exam that we have sufficient numbers on which to ensure the results are valid and fair. We are also working hard during the summer to pilot new improvements and undertake examiner training and quality assurance, whilst also developing a replacement clinical skills assessment module for the RCA.
