GMC Assessment Development Pilots


We’re recruiting doctors to assist with our GMC assessment pilots and we’re hoping you can help.

This is a great opportunity to get exam practice and gain extracurricular experience for applications and appraisals. You’ll receive a certificate for your portfolio, test scores and £175 for a half day written exam pilot.

Attendees would sit a two hour written exam then provide feedback on the assessment material. The assessments will later help us check whether a doctor is fit to practise, and your feedback helps us ensure the tests are reliable, set at the right level, and fair to the doctor.

To attend, doctors must have worked in the pilot specialty for four months or more during the past year.
