Information regarding cancelled exam on 24 July

We apologise for having to cancel the MRCPI General Medicine Part II Written exam in Dublin on Wednesday 24 July 2019.  

This is totally unacceptable and we apologise for the stress and frustration this caused.

The exam has now been rescheduled to 14 August 2019. It will be held in Unit 5A Concorde Business Park, Carriglea Ind Est., Naas Road, Dublin 12. There is also the option of taking the exam on 24 October 2019 or receiving a full refund.

We understand that candidates put a lot of work into preparing for this examination and took time off work. We will refund costs incurred around travel and accommodation. All candidates affected by the cancellation have been contacted with information on how to claim expenses.

Why was the exam cancelled?

We were forced to cancel the exam as a result of unforeseen technical failures, which our service provider had informed us would be fixed in a timely fashion.
