New CBT results not updating in NMC Online

CBT results are currently not updating in NMC Online for candidates who have taken the new CBT since 2 August 2021. This is due to a technical issue that we're working to resolve.

You can still check your CBT result in your Peason VUE account and via your Pearson VUE exam report. The OSCE can be booked as usual at your chosen test centre.

We launched a new version of Test of Competence (ToC) for nurses and midwives on 2 August 2021.

This guide covers how to prepare for and take the new ToC 2021.

Check you are taking the right test

You will take the new Test of Competence 2021 if:

  • you start a new application on or after 2 August 2021
  • you already started an application, but haven't sat an attempt at either the CBT or the OSCE before 2 August 2021.

We have a different guide if you're taking the nursing associate ToC or you're eligible to complete the legacy 2014 version of the Test of Competence for nurses and midwives. 

Read our transition guidance if you are not sure which version of the test you need to take.
