New rules for MRCGP AKT and CSA examinations

New rules on the timing and number of attempts for both MRCGP AKT and MRCGP CSA exams are coming into effect for trainees starting a GP rotation from August 2010 onwards. The new rules are:

MRCGP AKT – Maximum 4 attempts in total (previously no maximum). Can sit the exam in ST2 or ST3 year (previously able to sit the exam in any year of training). No time limit for a pass remaining valid (previously a 3 year limit on validity).

MRCGP CSA – Maximum 4 attempts in total (previously no maximum). Can sit the exam in ST3 year or later (final year of training) – no change. No time limit for a pass remaining valid (previously a 3 year limit on validity).

The rules do NOT apply to those already in training, the old regulations continue to apply. You can read the full details of the current MRCGP regulations on the RCGP website.
