Patient Based Assessment (VN-PBA)

The VN-PBA is an alternative approach (mitigation) to the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).

The VN-PBA has been designed specifically by the RCVS as an alternative examination to the OSCE to be used during the Covid-19 pandemic by an Awarding Organisation (AO).

These support resources and guidance documents are applicable to City & Guilds Veterinary Nursing PBA candidates only.

PBA Phase 1 Timetable

We have now released all results for candidates who sat their PBA in phase 1.

If you haven’t received your result, please contact your college or training provider who will be able to assist you.

City & Guilds cannot provide results directly to candidates via phone or email.

 

PBA Phase 2 Timetable

Candidates eligible for Phase 2 are those who intended to complete their assessment by 31 July 2020, and who would have entered the June OSCE series. Candidates who were withdrawn from Phase 1 due to GDPR may also enter Phase 2.

The timetable below sets out the process for candidate entry, submission of evidence and when to expect assessment to take place. Sadly due to operational issues we have had to delay and extend the assessment window and reschedule the provisional results date.

Please ensure you read our latest update regarding Phase 2 dates.
