Latest information

Our exam updates address any changes made to our exams. 

  • As part of the introduction of the exam hub we’ve made some changes to the way candidates book onto the Final Part B exam. Candidates who have taken the exam before, will see that their attempts have been split into two parts (reporting and oral) and can be viewed as below. 

  • FRCR Part 2B (Radiology) – Reporting 
  • FRCR Part 2B (Radiology) – Oral 

When candidates log into their RCR account, they will only need to book and pay for the reporting exam and will be automatically booked onto the oral exam at the same venue.  

The rest of the exam content and delivery will remain the same, which means reporting exams will always be on a Friday and oral exams will take place on every day during the following week. Exam results will be displayed in the same format and will be in two parts. 

COVID-19 and RCR exams

  • If you feel unwell or display COVID-19 symptoms do not attend the exam. 

Purpose of assessment

The Final FRCR (Part B) assessment examines candidates on all aspects of clinical radiology against the Specialty Training Curriculum for Clinical Radiology. The Final FRCR Exam Purpose of assessment statement details the examination's purpose, the required level of candidate training and the application of results. It is hoped that the statement will assist candidates, and those involved in their training, in understanding the scope of the FRCR exam and with relating the examination to other in-training assessments. The Final FRCR (Part B) exam consists of a reporting session, a rapid reporting session and an oral exam. 

Exam format

The reporting component of this exam will be computed based at the venue candidates have chosen. Candidates will receive a username and password to access the exam. The reporting instructional video and accompanying demonstration site should be viewed prior to the exam. The oral component will also be delivered to candidates in venues, via video conference, and further detail shows in the orals guidance video.

Exam content will be shared via MS Teams and candidates will be able to take control of the mouse and access functionality to manipulate images. After 30 minutes candidates will move to the second room and complete the second 30-minute session of the oral exam with different examiners.
