Part 2 MFOM FAQs

I have not attempted this exam previously; can I apply for just one or some components?

On a candidate’s first attempt at the MFOM Part 2 or AFOM, the MCQ, the MEQ, and the PH+OSPE must all be taken in the same diet.

If I am re-sitting, how do I apply for each individual component?

You should apply online for the examination that you wish to sit –MFOM Part 2 or AFOM.  Once you have completed your details, you will be asked to select which of the components you would like to take.  The corresponding fee will then be calculated.

How much does it cost to re-sit an individual component?

The MCQ re-sit fee is £310
The MEQ re-sit fee is £310
The PH and OSPE re-sit fee is £620

How long is my banked pass valid? 

Once the new MFOM Part 2 format has been approved by the GMC and implemented, any historically banked components (MCQ, MEQ, or PH + OSPE) will no longer be accepted, as a new examination format will become operational. We expect the new format will be implemented in September 2024.

What happens if, following the January / February 2024 diet, I have not passed all of the exam components?

You will be required to sit the new MFOM Part 2 examination.

If I have passed a component since October 2022, am I still able to take the remaining components in February 2024 to secure an overall pass?

Yes. The February 2024 diet will be the last opportunity to do so, prior to the implementation of the new examination format.
