20 Mar 2015

A pass rate of 76% has been reported for the March Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).

Sat by 63 pre-reg optometrists, the examination was held in London at the Royal College of General Practitioners.

The OSCE consists of 17 five-minute stations and each station tests a candidate’s skills, including history taking, communication, data interpretation, clinical examination and practice skills.

Head of examinations, at the College of Optometrists, Joseph Oakley, said: “Many congratulations to those candidates who have passed their final assessment, and welcome to the profession.

“The OSCE is the final hurdle in the Scheme for Registration’s assessment process, and those who pass have clearly demonstrated the ability to put all that they have learnt through their degree and pre-registration training into practice.”

The next OSCE will take place in July 2015 and will be held, once again, at the Royal College of General Practitioners.
