Changes to IBMS exams

Due to the pressures and difficulties caused by the COVID-19 there are changes to some IBMS exams in 2020.

These changes apply to the Diploma of Expert Practice (DEP) in Histological Dissection and Immunocytochemistry, the Higher Specialist Diploma (HSD) and the Advanced Specialist Diploma (ASD) in Specimen Dissection.

The closing date for applications to sit these examinations in 2020 has been changed from 1 May to 26 June.

The portfolio submission deadline has been changed from 22 May to 31 July.

DEP and ASD exams were scheduled to take place on 7 September at the University of Westminster, Glasgow Caledonian University and the Jordanstown Campus of Ulster University.

At the time of publication, it had not been decided whether the exams will go ahead on this date or be moved to later in the year.

The HSD exams will not take place as planned on 7-8 September. A new date and the locations for the exams have yet to be set, but it is hoped to be in November or early December.
