The following information is from MRCP(UK):

Extension of eligibility period during COVID-19 restrictions

We understand that the cancelation of exams due to the COVID-19 situation has had an impact on many candidates and their plans to complete the MRCP(UK) diploma

To ensure that candidates have an opportunity to progress, those whose seven-year eligibility period was due to expire in 2021, have been extended by 12 months, even if they had been extended previously. Our team have processed these and changes to eligibility periods should now be visible on candidate’s accounts.

Details of the normal eligibility period are outlined in paragraph 3.5 (page 5) of the MRCP(UK) regulations.

Candidates who have had six attempts at any part of the MRCP(UK) (Part 1, Part 2 Written, PACES) will still need to follow the limit on attempts procedure outlined when applying for a future diet of the examination.
