Royal Academicians and Associates
Sixth in the order of precedence of letters after name are the following (in order):
(a) Fellowships of Learned Societies
(b) Royal Academicians and Associates
(c) Fellowships, Memberships, etc, of Professional Institutions, Associations, etc.
(d) Writers to the Signet
Although Royal Academicians come second in this list, it is not suggested that they yield in precedence to fellows of learned societies. In practice the two lists do not coincide.
The President and Past Presidents are indicated as follows:
|President of the Royal Academy||PRA|
|Past President of the Royal Academy||PPRA|
|President of the Royal Scottish Academy||PRSA|
|Past President of the Royal Scottish Academy||PPRSA|
Royal Academicians and Associates are indicated as follows:

|Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy||ARSA|
Similarly with other Academies, for example President of the Royal Hibernian Academy (PRHA) and Academicians (RHA).
Honorary Academicians and Associates do not normally use the relevant letters.
