The Simulated Surgery exam is intended to assess consulting skills for general practice in the UK (for entry to I&R scheme).

  • This study has shown that the exam is also a task-based assessment of English language proficiency.
  • Communication skills are important and it is justifiable to assess them in order to certify that candidates can conduct a safe and effective consultation in practice within the I&R scheme.
  • The findings show differential attainment of candidates with lower levels of English speaking skills
  • Is this appropriate or unfair?
  • Does this need to be addressed? If so, how?
