The GPhC has announced the results from the June registration assessment. The full pass list can be viewed here.

There were 2,823 candidates who sat the registration assessment, with 2,208 achieving a pass (pass rate 78.2 per cent). This compares with a pass rate of 95 per cent for the June 2016 registration assessment. While this year’s pass rate is lower, it is more consistent with previous pass rates for June sittings, says the regulator.

GPhC chief executive Duncan Rudkin commented: “I want to congratulate the trainees who passed this year’s registration assessment and wish them all the best 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 milestone.

“From the first day on our register, pharmacists play an integral role in supporting the health of their patients. The registration assessment helps to make sure that candidates have – and are able to demonstrate – the knowledge and skills to meet this important responsibility.”
