Using Watch For Physical Examination During CASC
Since September 2018, the college expects candidates to provide their own timing device should there be a physical or other examination that requires the use of one. Digital watches/timing devices will not be permitted. Similarly, the Royal College has clarified that they do not permit mobile phones and other such devices these in CASC and will lead to disqualification if used. The candidate brings their device to the exam center. As with other components of the MRCPsych examination, the College does NOT provide spare timing devices and they will accept no liability if a candidate’s device is defective. The Royal College entertains no appeal if you do not bring your own timing device or a defective one and cannot perform a task requiring timing to the satisfaction of the examiner.
CASC means the clinical assessment of skill and applied knowledge
