Overview
Modules

The Test of Competence ensures that your knowledge and skills meet the requirements for working in the UK or Ireland. This examination consists of two parts: the first part is a theory-based multiple-choice test called CBT, and the second part is a practical test known as OSCE.

To take the CBT and OSCE exams, candidates must have nursing qualifications and possess at least one year of relevant experience if they did not complete their nursing degree in the UK. Additionally, candidates are required to pass the IELTS exam with a score of at least 7.0 in each area (writing, reading, speaking, listening) to demonstrate their English language proficiency.

CBT

CBT: The first section of the assessment is the computer-based multiple-choice test of competence. After passing an online eligibility check, candidates can continue to take the CBT exam. This test assesses theoretical knowledge and consists of 120 questions with a passing score of 66 percent. CBT results will be accessible within 48 hours after the exam. Candidates may take the exam a maximum of three times, with a minimum of ten working days between each attempt. If the third attempt fails, the application expires and a fresh registration is required to continue.

OSCE

The OSCE consists of six stations and is the second practical component of the competency exam. Three of these stations assess clinical skills that are relevant to working in the UK, while the other three stations involve scenarios for ongoing assessment, care of service users, and care implementation. OSCE results will be emailed within 5 working days of the OSCE sittings. Candidates get up to three attempts, with a minimum of 10 working days between each sitting, much like CBT. If the third attempt is unsuccessful, the application is closed, and a fresh registration is required to continue. If the third attempt is unsuccessful, the application is closed and a new registration is required to continue.
