MJDF Part 1

Exam overview

The Dental Faculties of the Royal College of Surgeons of England are happy to announce that the autumn MJDF Part 1 examination will now be delivered remotely.

This means that candidates will be able to sit the examination online from their own homes, please see our announcement for full details.

Update, Thursday 6 August: We’ve been experiencing a technical issue with our website relating to a high number of applications being made on the day of the deadline. We’re working on a solution, but have extended the deadline to Monday 10 August to accommodate the problem.


The MJDF consists of Part 1 and Part 2 exams. Candidates will normally be allowed a maximum of five years in which to complete all parts, but will need to pass Part 1 before progressing to Part 2. Part 1 consists of 150 Single Best Answer (SBA) questions within a single three-hour paper.

  • £535.00
