Hi. I had recently sat the pre registration mock exam online and it had been a very slow system in which i could not complete my full paper.

In the gphc assessment, will there be actions in place if this had occured then? This had put myself and others into a panic when the exam was in progress and had caused distraction.

How has the last-minute cancellation of the pre-reg exam for some overseas students affected you?

This week, the GPhC contacted some candidates who do not currently reside in the UK, informing them that they will no longer be allowed to sit the March registration exam remotely or at a local test centre. Did you receive an email from the GPhC? Let us know how the announcement affects you.

How to organise a cross-sector placement amidst COVID

I have just finished my pre-Reg year and unfortunately my hospital cross sector placement was cancelled because of the pandemic. :(How can community Pre-Reg pharmacists obtain a cross-sector placement? Which hospitals (in London) are still open to cross-sector placements? Will a COVID risk assessment be necessary/in place to reduce the risk of healthcare associated infections?
