MRCPsych Examinations:

The College has changed the format of postgraduate exams. You can read details of the new exams here.

UPDATE: The College have published an updated candidate guide to the CASC. Within it, they have stated that all stations carry equal weight. Therefore, you cannot fail the CASC because you fail one single station.

For details on how to apply for the exam, see the Royal College of Psychiatrists Examinations webpages. The examinations calendar is now provided by the College as a PDF document.
