SCE dates from September now confirmed

1 Jun 2020

The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK is pleased to announce that new dates have been confirmed for those Specialty Certificate Examinations (SCE’s)  and European Specialty Examinations that were cancelled earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have been working closely with our third party partners to confirm these dates and ensure the examinations can be delivered for the rest of 2020, and beyond if necessary, in accordance with the relevant local, national and international guidance on physical distancing.

Candidates who applied for the previously cancelled examinations and did not receive a refund will be transferred to the next rescheduled date.

The following examinations will now take place from September 2020, starting with the Medical Oncology SCE on 9 September.

Rearranged exams are shown in bold.
