MRCP(UK) are pleased to confirm that the new format examination, now known as PACES23, is being delivered across the UK.

*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.

Informative videos outlining the new 10-minute communication encounters and 20-minutes consultations with PACES23:
