Important information for those who sat the July 2021 assessment

The GPhC has today published the results of the July 2021 online registration assessment with an overall pass rate of 82%, along with next steps guidance for all candidates.

Thu 9th September 2021 The PDA

The PDA would like to congratulate all those candidates who were successful and are now eligible for PDA NQ membership which will support those who join the GPhC register and commence their career as a pharmacist.

Candidates who have been unsuccessful in the July 2021 assessment sitting can apply for PDA Potential Pharmacist membership. They can also join the PDA Education online Revision programme for those sitting the November 2021 assessment. This programme is FREE to PDA members and aims to support candidates and help them to successfully sit the assessment.

Emma Tinley, PDA Education Programme Manager, said: “The PDA’s Education Hub online revision programmes have received positive feedback from pre-reg and prov-reg members in helping them to prepare for their assessment sittings. Our final revision programme of the year commences on Wednesday 15 September and I look forward to welcoming PDA members to the course online and helping them to prepare for November 2021 exams.”

The GPhC has also published guidance for unsuccessful candidates who sat the July 2021 assessment. Candidates still have time to apply to sit the November 2021 exams via the GPhC website before 30 September 2021 (having provided a record of completing 39 weeks satisfactorily) and will need to request any reasonable adjustments by noon on 14 September 2021.

The PDA is here to support all members as they take the next steps in the journey to become a pharmacist.
