The intercollegiate MRCS and DO-HNS examinations are jointly managed by the four surgical royal colleges of the United Kingdom and in Ireland. The Intercollegiate Committee for Basic Surgical Examinations (ICBSE) develops, maintains and quality assures both MRCS and DO-HNS on behalf of the colleges. From the 16th of March, all MRCS and DO-HNS exams will be postponed until the end of August in the first instance due to COVID-19.
