The FRCA Exam
Everything you & your trainee needs to know about the Primary & Final FRCA are on the RCoA website https://rcoa.ac.uk/examinations
Currently all exams are online and there is guidance on changes to the delivery of the exam and demos available https://rcoa.ac.uk/documents/taking-osce-soe-online-guidance/summary-cha.... There is also up to date information about prioritisation of applications due to the capacity issues
In depth information about all components of both parts of the exam is at the above website. This includes videos, sample questions, marking and exam reports which can be useful for guiding a trainee who may be experiencing difficulties with the exam
Guidance interviews can be requested after one failure of any of the components and can be helpful for the trainee. They are usually provided by an examiner locally. These are only mandatory prior to the sixth attempt https://rcoa.ac.uk/documents/primary-final-frca-examinations-regulations/section-11-failures-guidance
