i've read somewhere it's 18 months, so if you sat this paper 3, you have (provided you've done 24months of a training post) three attempts at the CASC before you have to re-do paper 3.

i think the 1643 days relates to the period before paper 1 expires. The duration for expiration of paper 2 is less than that, and obviously for paper 3 it's even less.

Sorry, no references, but on good authority!

There is a time limit for Paper 3:

Important Announcement

MRCPsych Written Paper Validity Period (effective January 2011)

Currently candidates are eligible to apply for the CASC once they have gained

appropriate experience in the practice of psychiatry and have passed all the knowledge

based papers. A pass in Paper 3 expires after 635 days at which point applicants have to

re-take and pass Paper 3 if they are to remain eligible to enter for the CASC. This is to

ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date.
