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

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.”
