Share options

In the same way as other organisations in these unprecedented times, the College continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation carefully. We understand that this is a difficult, worrying and fast-changing situation for everyone.

In the context of latest government advice regarding COVID-19, we have taken the decision to cancel the Therapeutics Common Final Assessment in Independent Prescribing sitting that was scheduled to take place on 1 April 2020

We have made this decision so that all candidates and College staff can follow government and organisational advice on self-isolation and social distancing and respond, as required, to any escalation in this advice. 

Please do not travel to the venue.

All candidates will be automatically transferred onto the next examination sitting, which is currently scheduled for June 2020. Alternatively, candidates may apply to cancel their place altogether, and may request a refund of their examination fee by emailing

We will be taking a decision in the next few weeks regarding future examination sittings and are actively exploring alternative assessment arrangements. We will be in touch again with all candidates as these decisions are made.

If you have any queries, please send them to and one of the team will be in touch.
