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 August 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.
Who needs to take it
If you meet our eligibility criteria, but your qualification is not comparable to one we would approve, we’ll ask you to complete a test of competence as well as completing your registration application.
We'll confirm this with you when we evaluate your qualification.
What is involved
The test of competence is made up of two parts:
- a multiple-choice computer based theoretical test known as the CBT
- a practical test known as the OSCE
You'll need to pass both parts of the test before you can complete your registration application.
