Get certified from your home or office

Take your UKFP exam conveniently from home through OnVUE online proctoring. A live proctor will monitor you through the webcam on your workstation to provide a secure exam experience.

Watch the short video on the UKFP online proctoring page to see how convenient it is to test from home or work. Be sure to run the system test before you sign in to register for an online proctored exam. Good luck!

The Situational Judgement Test (SJT) forms part of the selection process for the UK Medical Foundation Programme. More information about the assessment is available on the UKFP website at https://foundationprogramme.nhs.uk/

To use the Pearson VUE test appointment scheduling webpages, you will be required to create a Pearson VUE web username and password. When invited to do so, use the 'Create Account' button on the right-hand side of this webpage. Refer to instructions you should have received from UKFPO. You only need to do this once. Subsequently, you can log in to your Pearson VUE account via the ‘Sign in’ button.

You will be invited to attend the SJT by the UKFPO via email. Once invited, you will be required to log in (using the 'Sign In' button on the right) and schedule your SJT date and time at one of the available Pearson VUE test centres. Alternatively, you have the option to take the SJT test in your own home, monitored remotely by webcam, by selecting the ‘OnVUE’ delivery method at the time of scheduling. Further guidance about scheduling an SJT appointment is given below.

If you require any reasonable adjustments to the assessment (for example extra time) that have not already been approved by UKFP, please contact the UKFP Team (helpdesk@foundationprogramme.nhs.uk) before you schedule a test appointment, so that we can ensure your needs can be accommodated at your preferred test centre (appointments with reasonable adjustments that are not simply extra time cannot normally be delivered via the ‘OnVUE’ remote invigilation method).

On the day of your assessment, the SJT will begin with a short tutorial to familiarise you with the controls and layout of the screens. If you wish to familiarise yourself with the controls beforehand, use the Related Link on the right to access the Pearson VUE testing tutorial.

The UKFP team would like to wish you every success in the SJT.
