FPM has received GMC approval to once again run the 2021 CPM and DPM examinations online, with remote invigilation.

Registration is now open and will run until Friday 6 August 2021.

How does remote invigilation work?

Online remote invigilation (also know as proctoring) essentially recreates the exam hall experience online. Candidates sit the exam online at a place of their choosing, such as the home or workplace, using their own hardware.  You can sit the examination anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection.  The examinations are run and supported by TestReach, whose platform has been architected so that remotely invigilated exams can be run at lower bandwidths with fluctuating internet speeds.

The exam is invigilated by a proctor who will watch a maximum of six candidates at any one sitting. The proctor is not visible to candidates but candidates can communicate with them throughout the exam.

We have produced a comprehensive FAQs on our online examinations.
