Since the inception of our online exams earlier this year, we made some changes to our examination timetable 2020/21 to assist students with completing their studies sooner. Our key focus remains to continue to provide students and course providers with as much stability and information as possible, to provide a solution with minimal disruption to the services we can provide.

We appreciate that some students may still be apprehensive about the online exams and may have deferred hoping for a face to face written or OSCE exam, however our priority is ensuring a safe assessment method is given to the students sitting their exam, and given the challenging times we continue to face, we feel this provides more certainty and allows the students a chance to complete their studies.

Therefore, following positive feedback from course providers and students, we are pleased to announce that all written exams will remain online including our Post-Registration exams and the National Diploma written exam for the foreseeable future.

OSCE practical exams (June 2021+) are currently being reviewed as to whether they remain online or face to face. More information will be provided later this year.

If you are sitting an upcoming exam and have any questions, please speak to your course provider who will be able to help you.
