Register for examinations
If you have not yet sat an examination with the RCPCH and/or do not have an RCPCH number, you will need to register online for examinations - for either MRCPCH or DCH. Once your registration is accepted, you can apply for an examination during the relevant application period.
We strongly advise that you register outside of an exam application period. This will help ensure we complete your registration in time for your preferred exam date.
It takes just a few minutes to create your account.
If you have an RCPCH number (eg if you are an RCPCH member or have previously registered for examinations), this will be on any written correspondence from the College. If you think you have an RCPCH number but don't remember this, please contact us on email@example.com
If you have an account, sign in.
Once signed in, you can go to Account in the website header.
You can go to Update My Details to check and edit your details, including your work information, contact preferences and interests. Do please take a moment to complete the Equal Opportunities section - this information is key to undertaking examination performance analysis.
Then, go to Register for Exams. Select your qualification route (MRCPCH or DCH), and complete a short form about your primary medical qualification.
If you are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and if all other details are entered correctly, your registration will be automatically accepted.
If you are not registered with the GMC, you can submit a scanned copy of your Primary Medical Certificate. The RCPCH Examinations Team will review your registration, and inform you whether your registration is accepted within three working days.
Once your registration is accepted, you can apply for an exam during the relevant application period.
