Our website, NMC Online and our other online services will be unavailable from 07:15 to 10:00 on Saturday 23 January for essential maintenance. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

Please visit nmc.org.uk/COVID19 for information about temporary registration and changes to how we’re operating during this time.


During this stage, we need you to provide evidence that you meet our other registration requirements.

Some of your supporting evidence will be time sensitive, so we recommend that you only start your registration application when you’re close to taking your CBT and OSCE, or after you’ve completed both, if applicable.

How long do I have?

You have two years from the point you pass either your CBT or OSCE (whichever is first) to ensure that we receive all the information we ask for, including verification from your referees (like your medical practitioner).

If we don't receive everything in this time, we'll close your application.
