The candidate will be emailed the results within 3-5 working days of sitting the OSCE. You are not allowed to ask the examiners or competence test centre staff of your result on the day, they will not be able to release any results directly to candidates.

Failing up to four stations, means the resit will be charged at 50% cost; £397. If five or six stations are failed, the resit will be charged at 100% cost; £794.

A minimum of 10 working days is required by the NMC, between the initial attempt and the first resit. If unsuccessful at the second sitting, candidates are also required to wait 10 working days, before taking the exam for the third time.

However, if an appeal is made, the investigation will delay things and have to be completed before a resit can be booked, if the appeal is not upheld.

If a candidate fails their second re-sit, their NMC application will close. A new application to the NMC will need to be submitted and they will not be allowed to sit the exam again for a minimum of six months. If an applicant would like to begin a new application ahead of the six months OSCE exclusion period, they can do so.

Applicants starting a new application must contact the NMC overseas enquiries email, to confirm CBT and IELTS/OET validity, and will be informed of the next steps

You may sit the CBT up to three times as part of one application, with a minimum of 10 days between each sitting. If you are unsuccessful after your permitted attempts, your application will close. You’ll be required to submit a new application and will not be able to sit the CBT again for a minimum of six months. The candidate must achieve a score of 66%
