Registration assessment 

Autumn prereg assessment pass rate increases for second year in a row

The number of preregistration trainee pharmacists who passed the autumn registration assessment has increased for the second year in a row, according to the latest results from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).

On 27 September 2018, 834 candidates sat the registration assessment, and, of these, 544 candidates passed. This pass rate of 65.2% is higher than the 58.3% achieved in September 2017 and the 40.76% achieved in September 2016.

In 2018, there were 319 candidates who sat the assessment for the first time, 448 for the second time, and 67 for the third time.

Pre-registration trainee pharmacists are permitted three attempts at the registration assessment. Overall, 290 candidates (34.8%) failed the exam in September 2018. 

Duncan Rudkin, chief executive at the GPhC, congratulated the trainees who passed this year’s registration assessment, saying: “I’d like to wish them well for their future careers. I’d also like to mention the tutors and education and training providers for their hard work in helping trainees prepare for this significant step”.

He added that from the first day on the GPhC register, “pharmacists play an integral role in supporting the health and care of their patients”.

“Through the registration assessment, we make sure that only those candidates who have — and can demonstrate they have — the required knowledge and skills to practise safely and effectively are able to join the register.”
