ARGUABLY the registration assessment is one of the most important examinations you will sit.
Performing 4 years of hard work at University, working in a demanding role as a pre-registration pharmacist and passing the assessment is an achievement within itself. During the course of my pre-reg year I realised that although there were numerous support systems to help students, there is not much information to be found on actually preparing for the examination itself.
There are many things I look back on and wished I had done to make my revision process simpler, and I hope that the experiences I share in this article will be of service to you and help you tackle that final dreaded hurdle.
A bit about myself, I undertook my pre-registration year within a London NHS Hospital Trust so I am now a newly qualified pharmacist. I sat the September 2017 exam for the first time. This exam, in my opinion, went so horrendously badly that I thought my chances of passing were next to nothing. Thankfully though, I was lucky and managed to make it through in the end and hope the following hints and tips from my experience will make your assessment a success.
