MRCPCH India examinations

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health runs examinations in cities across India. 

These are: 

  • Bangalore
  • Chennai
  • Kolkata
  • Mumbai
  • New Delhi
  • Hyderabad

Please note that due to the low candidate numbers that we have been receiving in some of our India centres for the Foundation of Practice, Theory and Science and Applied Knowledge examinations, we may need to reduce the number of centres on offer at short notice. 

This means that although each candidate choosing to sit the exam in India will still have choices of centre on their application form, a candidate may be allocated to their second choice if the numbers are not sufficient in their chosen centre to run the exam.

Candidate eligibility - Bangladeshi nationals

The RCPCH has opened up the MRCPCH Clinical in India exam to all Bangladeshi nationals and those who are currently working in Bangladesh.

The decision was taken due to the increasing number of applications received from this area. India nationals and those currently working in India will still receive priority status.
