Veterinary nursing students have achieved excellent results in the latest round of practical examinations, as revealed by the pass lists published by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).

VN PracticalOf the 237 candidates attempting the new Level 3 Diploma practical exams (called Objective Structured Clinical Examinations or ‘OSCEs’) in December, 165 passed, giving a pass rate of 70%.

Many candidates also passed with a clear margin, with a third of those entering successful in 10 or more of the 12 exam stations; to pass, candidates need success in at least eight stations.

Students sitting the old-style NVQ Level 3 practical exams also gained excellent results: of these 62 candidates, 49 were successful, resulting in a pass rate of 79%, the highest in recent times.

Libby Earle, head of the RCVS VN department, said: “Congratulations to all those who were successful – and to the colleges and practices whose support has been vital to these students’ success. It is good to see VN students doing so well and particularly under the new Level 3 Diploma since it is only the second time these practical examinations have been held.”
