Changes in light of coronavirus (Covid-19)

In line with the latest advice from the UK Government, all three OSCE test centres reopened on Monday 20 July 2020. 

So you have time to complete your OSCE, we are extending the validity period of CBT results expiring between 1 March 2020 and 31 December 2020 by six months. You don’t need to do anything or contact us to have this change applied to your application - we’re updating this for you.

Check our Covid-19: Information for overseas candidates page for the latest information.
