OSCE Examination


The BSCCP uses a structured assessment of training through the OSCE examination. These examinations are held in Birmingham twice per year. Click on the tabs for detailed information about this process.


OSCEs will be held late Sring and late Autumn, please click here for exam dates and logbook deadlines.

Final assessment will be determined by an Objective Structured clinical Examination (OSCE). This will be a 12 station OSCE with 10 minutes at each station. All questions are written in a standardised format and with explicit marking criteria. The knowledge of cervical screening and colposcopy practice will be based on the BSCCP training guide objectives and the level of a basic colposcopy course.
