MRCPath Part 1

Following a request from Dr I C Jhala, Chairman of the Indian College of Pathologists, and subsequent discussions by the Examinations Committee, the Council of The Royal College of Pathologists has agreed that the MRCPath Part 1 written examinations will be held in India.

The initial pilot ran from Spring 2002 to Autumn 2002 inclusive and has now been extended for an indefinite period.

Local trainers will advise trainees that high standards are expected in the examinations and they should not be disappointed in the event of failure. The number of candidates for the pilot scheme will be restricted to 50 in total and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.


  1. Entry will be restricted to those candidates who have completed their postgraduate training programme from acknowledged centres of excellence. Candidates must have passed the MD (taught) or the Diploma of the National Board. Testimonials must accompany the application and must be signed by a competent referee who acts as the supervisor of the applicant.

  2. The College's training programmes will be sent to India for distribution to heads of departments and can also be viewed at Core Training Programmes and Records. Responsibility for ensuring training criteria have been met will reside with heads of departments who will provide written evidence that the trainees have had the training experience required for the examination.

  3. Applications from locally approved candidates will be vetted by the Director of Studies and the Overseas Adviser before final entry to the examination is accepted by the College. The Royal College of Pathologists reserves the right to refuse entry to the examination.


Candidates may download the following information:

Candidates should be aware that they may be asked to pay an additional local charge to the Indian College of Pathologists and should contact them directly for details.

Examination regulations and past papers may be requested from the Examinations Department (please state your specialty) at exams@rcpath.org.

Candidates may fax their completed application forms to the College on: + 44 20 7451 6701 or 6702, but the original form and payment must be sent via the Indian College of Pathologists to The Examinations Department, The Royal College of Pathologists, 2 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AF. Applications received after the closing date will not be accepted.

Visa information for overseas candidates

Candidates who are travelling to the United Kingdom for the Part 1, Part 2 or Diploma examinations must make their own arrangements to obtain any visa entry requirements to the UK.

The College can write a letter of support stating that entry should be granted for the purposes of the examination, but we are unable to offer individual detailed advice on how a candidate should apply for a visa for travel to the UK.

A candidate who is accepted for an examination and is then unable to gain a visa to travel to the UK should contact the Examination Department, in writing, before the examination. A candidate's application and fee may be transferred to the following examination session only at the discretion of the Department: any request for a transfer will be considered on its individual merit."
