Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across all PACES centres in the UK and internationally, the introduction of the new PACES examination had to be delayed. MRCP(UK) are pleased to confirm that the new format examination, now known as PACES23, will be introduced from the 3rd Diet of 2023. PACES23 will be introduced for candidates sitting in Singapore from early 2024.

The examination will still test the same clinical skills, and there will still be five stations. However, some of the encounters are changing. MRCP(UK) will provide more information and training materials for candidates and examiners in the lead up to the introduction of PACES23. Please keep visiting the PACES23 page on the MRCP(UK) website for updates.
