Please note that the Appeals Procedure for all Examinations has been revised effective November 2018. Candidates are strongly advised to read and familiarise themselves with the updated policy here: https://www.rcophth.ac.uk/examinations/appeals-procedure/

Important Warning: Please note that we are aware of websites where exam questions are shared by candidates after taking an exam. We take this matter very seriously and have methods in place to identify such practices. Any candidate found to be sharing examination questions online will be subject to the College Cheating and Misconduct policy which could result in your examination being annulled.The GMC and the Medical School Council (MSC) in their joint publication for medical students, note that ‘sharing with fellow students or others, details of questions or tasks from exams you have taken’  is an act of academic dishonesty.
