Practice Assessment Questions

Learning points

After each sitting of the registration assessment, the Board of Assessors reflects on how pre-registration trainees have performed in each of the questions. Sometimes it is apparent that specific topics from the assessment syllabus have been difficult for trainees in that sitting. As a result, the Board of Assessors has introduced learning points that relate to these topics, in particular where a lack of knowledge and understanding in practice could lead to patient harm.

Sample papers

We have archived old sample papers as these relate to previous registration assessments.

Key points:

  • The archived sample paper will show you the structure of the assessment but the content relates to previous years’ assessments.
  • All questions in the registration assessment are derived from the registration assessment syllabus.
  • Not everything in the registration syllabus is tested in the practice sets, and trainees are reminded that they should refer to the syllabus when preparing for the assessment.
  • Questions in the registration assessment will be patient-focused where appropriate.
