Duncan Rudkin has congratulated the trainees who have passed this year’s preregistration exam, for which there was a 79% pass rate, up one percentage point from 2017

This year’s preregistration candidates increased their pass rate from last year to 79%.

Up one percentage point from the exam in 2017, the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) said that 2,942 candidates sat the preregistration exam on 28 June 2018, with 2,318 passing.

However, this is still behind the 95% pass rate of 2016.

There were 2,642 candidates who sat the assessment for the first time in 2018; 146 for the second time and 154 for the third time. Click here to access a full list of those candidates who have passed the exam.

This year’s pass rate of 79% compares with the 78.2% pass rate for the June 2017 registration assessment.   

Duncan Rudkin, chief executive of the GPhC, said: “I want to congratulate the trainees who passed this year’s registration assessment and wish them well for their future careers. I also want to acknowledge the hard work of tutors and education and training providers in helping trainees prepare for this important step.”
