3. Application form and policy for withdrawing from the exam

5. Misconduct Policy

Please may we bring your attention to the following points:

Reasonable Adjustments
The policy for applications for reasonable adjustments has recently been updated. Please ensure you have read the latest guidance in the above document before applying.

Each request for an adjustment to an exam must be made at the time of application and before the application closing date deadline.

Requests for adjustments can only be considered if the appropriate evidence from a medical professional or educational psychologist and supporting letter from a Training Programme Director/employer is submitted with the request.

To ensure the process is fair for all candidates, the Faculty requires all the necessary evidence to be supplied and submitted with the application for each exam and exam attempt. An adjustment cannot be considered without it and late documentation will not be considered. Please note that there is a fee associated with withdrawing if you wish to delay your attempt due to a condition that is currently being assessed.

The only exception to this is for candidates with long-term conditions who wish to apply for the same adjustment (that has previously been approved by FPH) at subsequent sittings of the same exam. Please see the Adjustment Policy for further details.

Payment and confirmation of booking
Places for the exam can only be confirmed once payment has been received.

Withdrawing from the exam and Extenuating circumstances

The guidance for applications for withdrawals and extenuating circumstances changed in November 2019 and was updated in September 2020. Please ensure you have read the latest guidance in these documents before applying.
