An introduction to the mock exam

In accordance with the GPhC’s online mode of assessment, the NPA is pleased to offer an eLearning mock exam that is delivered online to help the trainee familiarise themselves with the process prior to the actual assessment.

The NPA’s mock exam is a great way for trainees to practise for the full online assessment under timed conditions. Answers are received immediately enabling trainees to identify any gaps in their knowledge and fill these prior to the GPhC assessment. The webinar also explains how to work out the calculation answers from part one of the mock exam.
