MRCPCH Clinical exams and growth charts

This page is meant to provide candidates for the MRCPCH Clinical exams with guidance around the use of growth charts in these exams.

We have had feedback from candidates that some find it difficult to see growth charts properly on Practique and they struggle to use the zoom and pan functions in their station. 

Our senior examiners and officers feel it is important to continue to include such charts in exams and for candidates to know how to use them. In order to try to mitigate against these issues we are updating our guidance.

All candidates should be prepared that any MRCPCH Clinical exam might include growth charts, completed or blank. Therefore, candidates should access the two sets of growth charts prior to their exam and print out both boys and girls sets to use on exam day. You may find all four growth charts at the links below.
