Pharmacists’ registration exam set to become more clinical in 2016


The pre reg exam is nothing more than a cash cow. How many pharmacists are practicing that haven't even sat the exam? (not to mention how many people at GPhC headquarters?) AND how many poor souls have failed it three times who would have made more than competent pharmacists if they could only be adept to sit MCQ style exams? (How many terrible pharmacists have passed it because their MCQ exam technique was the only thing they were good for?) Face it: this exam (which is marked by a computer!) is helping to pay for cushy new offices in Canary Wharf for an organisation that has done nothing to quench the swell in numbers of pharmacy graduates (£££ for you know who...) which is one of the leading causes of degradation in our once great profession
