All applicants will be notified of their results, and thus their performance/outcome a short time after the conclusion of the testing window. The date by which you can expect your results is disclosed in the GP recruitment timeline for each round. The timeline can be found on the Recruitment webpage of the GPNRO website.
The MSRA scores awarded for GP applicants in each paper are normalised around a mean score of 250 with a standard deviation of 40. In addition, the scores for each paper are banded 1 to 4 where 1 indicates that the minimum acceptable standard has not been achieved. Applicants who achieve a band of 1 in either paper will be deemed unsuccessful and will not progress further with their application.
Maximum Achievable Score
Due to the abovementioned normalisation of all MSRA scores, there is no maximum achievable score. For a given cohort of applicants, normalisation is dependent on the average performance of said cohort and therefore, it is not considered meaningful to interpret the scores achieved in the MSRA with a maximum value.
Direct Pathway to Offers
All applicants who achieve a combined total score of 575 in the MSRA will qualify for a streamlined route which does not require them to attend a face-to-face assessment at Selection Centre. A score of 575 approximately represents the top 10 percentile in the first round of recruitment.
If you qualify for this route, you will be ranked first, before those who were deemed appointable via Selection Centre, increasing your chance of receiving an offer of training at a programme in one of your more preferred programmes/locations.
If you qualify for this direct route but you are subject to the Resident Labour Market Test, you will only be offered a post after all UK/EU/EEA applicants have been offered, including those who underwent an assessment at Selection Centre.
Appealing the Outcome
All applicants will receive feedback when they are notified of their outcome. The outcome is final and cannot be reviewed, re-marked or disputed. There is no appeals process.
If you feel your application has not been managed correctly and have evidence of a failure in the process, there is a national complaints policy and procedure. You should explore this route if you have any concerns about your application. A copy of the policy can be located in the GPRNO Resource Bank.
