Those candidates who have never taken an exam with the RCPCH and/or do not have an RCPCH number are advised to first register with the RCPCH well before the application period. You do not need to wait until a specific examination opens to apply for an RCPCH online account. A RCPCH number is needed in order to access the online application forms for exams.

There will normally be TWO FOP TAS exams held in HK each year, one in February, and another one in October. This June diet is organized exceptionally to cater the back log of the previous cancelled exams. 

Special Note: For candidates who have applied for the cancelled FOP TAS examination originally held on 13 Oct 2021 (Wed) and 16 Feb 2022 (Wed) respectively, and who have NOT file a refund application, YOU DO NOT NEED TO RE-APPLY for this examination. Your seat will automatically be transferred to this diet. RCPCH will notify you on the details of the examination closer to the date.

Thank you for your attention.
