Unused fees

There is no automatic refund of unused fees except where an applicant is unsuccessful at the second attempt at the theory part, in which case the portion of the fee for the practical part will be refunded (as such an applicant would not be eligible to take the practical part of the Aptitude Test).

Otherwise if any part of a fee is not used, a request may be submitted to use against payment for another applicant or for a refund. A refund is not guaranteed and is considered on a case-by-case basis. If granted, an administration fee will incur. Complete the below and email to

  • Applicant's name
  • Applicant's RCSI number
  • Applicant's NMBI number
  • Briefly describe why the fees paid were not used
  • Do you wish that the unused fee be used as credit for another applicant or rebated?
