Duke Elder Undergraduate Prize Examination

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists will again sponsor a Prize Examination for Undergraduates, to be held on Wednesday 8 March 2017 at 2:30pm.

The candidate gaining the highest mark will be offered the chance to visit St John’s Eye Hospital in Jerusalem. The winning candidate can alternatively choose a monetary prize of £400.

The Examination will take the form of a single paper of 90 Multiple Choice Questions. There will be a time limit of 2 hours. The Examination will be held at your individual medical school.

Candidates should submit their names and email addresses to Clinical Deans or other appropriate officers. The closing date for candidate applications is Monday 12 December 2016. Candidates must apply via their medical school. Unfortunately we cannot accept late applications.

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists will then liaise directly with candidates, as confirmed by their medical school, regarding payment of the £10.00 examination fee. Examination fees should not be submitted to your medical school. The deadline for fee payment is Wednesday 11 January 2017. Candidates who have not paid the examination fee by this date will not have a place at the examination.
