​​Once logged in, candidates will only see sittings which are relevant to their exam history and qualification as well as the remaining capacity of the sitting​. The booking system will not display sittings which are after a candidate's "must-be-attained-by" date or beyond the closing date for the sitting. Please see the FAQ for how to request an extension to the "must-be-attained-by" date. It is not possible to make a booking for an exam sitting after the closing date.

If a sitting is fully booked, no further spaces are available unless another candidate cancels their place. Click the 'Alert me' button to be notified when someone drops out of a sitting.

The closing date (after which no further changes or additions can be made to sittings) is four weeks before each sitting, unless stated otherwise. 

Please note that from May 2020, the Park Inn Heathrow will change its name to the Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre, Heathrow. This is the same venue as previously.


The sittings scheduled for Tuesday 11 August 2020 at the Hilton East Midlands Airport and Friday 14 August 2020 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre Heathrow have been cancelled. Cancellation of the examination sessions has been considered a responsible step given the current status of the Covid-19 situation, the latest Governmental advice, and remaining uncertainty regarding availability of the venues.

Please note that the sittings scheduled for Friday 10 July 2020 at the Hilton East Midlands Airport and Tuesday 14 July 2020 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol North have also been cancelled.


The Government have published 8 ‘live’ guidance documents on the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy ("BEIS") site which can be accessed here - this guidance, which is intended to ensure there are safe return to work guidelines in place for all, is currently under review by the ABPI Examinations Team in the context of how and when we are able to resume delivery of the ABPI Exam. The safety and wellbeing of the Examinations Team and all our candidates remains our priority when considering the feasibility of upcoming Exam sittings. As soon as decisions are reached, we will update this webpage.

The ABPI Exams Team are currently exploring all possible solutions to exam delivery, and whilst these are time consuming, they are essential to maintaining the integrity of the qualification, and for providing assurance to candidates, both past and present, the industry, and patients that current candidates will have been assessed to as high a standard as pre-Covid. However, we are sorry that it is not possible to confirm any further details at this time.


Any update with regard to either further disruption to sittings due to Covid-19 or alternative examination arrangements will appear here.
