As part of the November round of RCA Exams, the RCGP will be providing eligible ST3 trainees with a certain number of free credits before you have booked the exam, and then additional ones after you have booked on.
Before booking your exam:
The RCGP will provide you with 200 credits before booking in your exam. If you use these up there are a couple of options:
- You can wait until you have booked in your exam, at which time you will get a further credit allowance
- The other option is to buy more credits before booking onto the exam, but please be aware these will be at your own expense and will not be taken off your further allowance that the College gives you after booking in the exam
After you have booked onto the exam:
Once you have booked onto the exam and paid for it, the College will provide you with an additional 600 credits allowance - this will automatically be added to your FourteenFish account.
If you use these up then any additional credits purchased will be at your own expense.
Purchasing more credits:
If you wish to buy more credits, then you can do this whilst in the RCA overview screen, and hitting purchase credits:
Refunding unused credits:
Please be aware once you buy additional credits these are non-refundable unless purchased in error.
If you have accidentally purchased an extra block of consultations, and none of them have been used, we will happily offer you a refund within 24 hours of the purchase being made.
Hi, when will the free credit be provided please? I assume that this applies to everyone with a CCT date before August 2020? Thanks.
Hi, I was also wondering the same thing, I am eligible to sit the November exam and will be CCTing soon after this date- how will the free 200minutes be added onto my account?
Any update on the 200 credits as above 14Fish?
Hi Joy & Hadeeqa,
Thanks for your comments and sorry for the delay in replying to you on here.
Just so you are aware that with any queries that you have it is always best to direct these to our Support Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org as we tend to see these a lot sooner.
The RCGP are in charge of telling us when to release the free credits to trainees and who is eligible for sitting the November RCA exam so these questions can also be directed to them as they will be more in the know of timings, etc.
The free 200 minutes were released earlier this week but if you have not received these or are unsure on anything please do pop a message over to our Support Desk and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Hope that helps!
Assistant Support Manager & FFARMS Lead
