Examination Exemptions

Admission to Fellowship is by examination, although the Board of Education and Assessment may grant exemptions from some components of the examination.

The College has developed a set of tables that provide guidance to prospective Trainees and International Medical Graduates about exam exemptions that may be granted in recognition of prior learning. These are only guidelines for applying for exam exemptions at the time of Initial Registration/Application for Examination with the College.

For the latest version of the Exam Exemption Table see below.

Application for exemption can be made on the Application for Examination form for discipline based examinations, or on the Application for Basic Pathological Sciences (BPS) Examination or Exemption for the BPS.

Trainees seeking an exemption need to submit full details with supporting evidence.
