Home FRCS exam schedule 2024: Key dates and venues for aspiring surgeons

FRCS is a prestigious professional qualification that is essential for practising as a consultant surgeon in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. This qualification is awarded by the Royal Colleges of Surgeons in England, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Ireland. This intercollegiate partnership ensures the FRCS maintains consistently high standards, recognised globally as a hallmark of surgical expertise.

The exams are administered by two main bodies: the Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examinations (JCIE) and the Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Examination (JSCFE). The examination includes written, oral, and clinical assessments, ensuring that surgeons maintain the highest standards of knowledge, skill, and professional competence.

Having a clear timeline helps candidates plan their studies and ensure they are ready for each stage. Regularly checking for updates and announcements ensures you won’t miss any critical deadlines. Here, we provide the essential exam dates for 2024, to help you stay on top of your preparation.
