Round 1 of the competition is an online multiple-choice questionnaire prepared by the Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) consisting of 20 questions based on ICH/GCP questions. This is no more than a couple of hours work and the pass mark to move forward to Round 2 is 80%.

New for 2018 is the opportunity to re-sit the MCQ. So, if you didn’t make the grade on your first attempt,  go back to the website and give it another go (only one re-take allowed).

Successful candidates from stage one are invited to complete the 'Clinical Challenge', a 1000- word essay devised by the competition's executive steering committee, with the top performers going on to take part finals in March 2018.
