Any ways, as and when the test changes we will update our articles in oscetrainer.com to help you pass your osce exam. So let me take you through the changes expected from November 2022 in NMC OSCE.

NMC OSCE Changes – November 2022

First of all, Is this hot topic a rumour? Answer is sadly, this is not a rumour. All these discussions started when the new marking scheme criteria version 1.6 were uploaded by Northumbria University and Oxford University a few days back. On the website of Northumbria University, the update was mentioned with the headline “Breaking News – The New Marking Scheme Criteria version 1.6 recently uploaded does not go live until 26th September 2022.” But as of today, both the Universities have removed the new marking scheme criteria (V1.6) from their official websites and Northumbria has even removed the breaking news!

But on 3rd September 2022, NMC issued a statement “From 17 October 2022, we’ll introduce a selection of new scenarios and skills for the nursing OSCE. All test centers are in the process of publishing a suite of support and preparation materials for candidates and those delivering preparation and support program.”

Note:- According to the latest update from NMC this will be commenced only from 14th November 2022.

Luckily, we were able to have a copy of the adult marking criteria version 1.6 from one of the university websites before it was removed and let me walk you through the changes planned in this video.
