PSA: Exam Structure

The PSA exam tests your knowledge, skills and judgement of prescribing medicines within the context of the NHS. This includes writing, reviewing and amending prescriptions, calculating drug doses, and identifying adverse drug reactions and medication errors.

The PSA exam is 2 hours, with 60 questions to answer across the 8 areas. There are a total of 200 marks on offer.

The Prescribing section makes up the most marks, with 80 marks available.

This is followed by the Prescription Review section, with 32 marks available.

Planning Management, Providing information about Medicines, Calculation, Adverse Drug Reactions, Drug Monitoring and Drug Interpretation make up the rest of the marks available.

You will take the PSA in either your final year of medical school or during FY1. You must pass the PSA to progress to FY2. So it’s vital that you take it seriously and prepare effectively!
