The four Royal Colleges have announced temporary changes to the Intercollegiate DO-HNS Part 1 and 2 and MRCS Part B. 

The Colleges are pleased to announce that the September 2020 DOHNS Part 1 examination will be delivered remotely as an online assessment. As a consequence, the capacity of this examination will not be limited by COVID-19 restrictions and candidates will be able to sit the examination without the requirement to travel to an examination centre. The format and syllabus of the examination will remain the same.

Similarly, the Colleges have applied to the GMC to make changes to the format of the DO-HNS Part 2 (OSCE) for October 2020. The GMC is currently reviewing the submission.

The Colleges have also applied to the GMC to make changes to the format of the MRCS Part B (OSCE) for October 2020. This is to ensure that the exam can be offered effectively either in a socially-distanced way or online. The GMC is again currently reviewing the submission.
