Royal College states

Eligibility for UK trainees during the Transition Period 01/08/2007-31/07/2010

All trainees who enter run through training at ST 2 or ST3 may enter to sit the Paper 3 and OSCE if they hold MRCPsych Examination Part 1 under the previous eligibility criteria for a period of three years from 1st August 2007-31st July 2010.

They must complete the new criteria for the OSCE to take Paper 3 and the OSCE.

Does it mean those who will not clear part-1 in spring'07, will go for new Part-1 ? then who all are going to take the part -1 in Autumn'07

can anybody please clarify

If you don't clear part one in spring 07 you can have another go in the autumn. If you fail then you will have to sit the new exam but you will automatically be eligible for part 1 and 2. Unfortunately when you get top part three you will have to meet the eligiblitiy criteria in terms of assessments.

in the new format there seems to be a time frame like 24-48 months for paper 3. Does that mean if you had more than 48 months training combining before and after august 2007, you can't sit for paper 3 ?

I am a bit confused because if somebody does not have part1 in Aug 2007 and has to fulfill the new criteria for paper 3 like ACE and structured case presentations theres no way one do that in 1 year.

may be somebody can clarify.

I have the same query. We have to complete paper 3 and osce by end of AT 3 so it means have to complete all the assessmnets by the end of ST 2. :( :(
