We’re changing the resit requirements for applicants sitting the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE)

Changing resit requirements for OSCE

The way nurses and midwives trained outside the UK and European Economic Area (EEA) re-sit the OSCE assessment will change from 16 July 2018.

Under these new changes, test centres will only require applicants to re-sit the parts of the OSCE assessment they failed and will not need to re-sit parts of the exam they have previously passed. 

This change is the first of a series of changes we will be making as a result of our review of our overseas processes.

This positive change will make the test more proportionate and flexible for candidates that re-resit the OSCE and those providing support to them.

For more information please contact your test provider or email us at overseas.enqueries@nmc-uk.org.
