How to apply for the clinical examination


The new scheduling process allows candidates to view exact examination dates on the AMC website. Candidates can view the examinations open for scheduling, the closing dates and the number of places available.

Once an examination is open for scheduling, candidates can select either Main or Retest, depending on selection, relevant dates will be shown. Please note: you will only be able to select the examination which you are eligible for (i.e Main or Retest).

Candidates can then directly apply for the preferred examination date and select the payment method (credit card or cheque), a tick box option will be available for candidate selection. There are different closing dates depending on the method of payment.

  • Credit card payment - a candidate can make payment right up until the examination closing date. Candidates paying by credit card will receive a placement letter once payment is successfully processed. This should be immediate.
  • Cheque payment – a candidate can make a cheque payment up to 10 days prior to the examination closing date. This allows for the cheque to be received and processed at the AMC prior to the examination closing date. If the cheque is not received 10 days prior to the examination closing date, the placement will be forfeited. Candidates paying by cheque will be able to download a placement letter via the candidate portal once payment is successfully received and processed. Please be aware that cheque processing may take up to 2 weeks.

Candidates are scheduled into a time slot, earliest available for that date.

Candidates paying by cheque will receive a placement letter once payment is successfully received and processed. This may take up to 2 weeks. Therefore an earlier closing date is required for these payment types.

To start the scheduling process, please log in to the Candidate Portal. You will be able to view your placements in the portal, once scheduling has been processed.
