The Pharmacists Council of Nigeria has finally released the October PEP exam results. This edition of the exam was written on 23rd October 2021. Nine centers across the six geopolitical zones of the country were used.
The PEP exam is the Pre-registration examination for Pharmacists. The exams were started in 2018 by the PCN, for pharmacists who have concluded their compulsory one-year internship program in any approved institutions across the country.
Pharmacists usually do their one-year internships in hospitals, pharmaceutical industries, community pharmacies, and regulatory agencies such as PCN, NAFDAC, and NIPRD.
Success in the PEP exams is an important prerequisite for any pharmacist to be fully registered and licensed as a pharmacist in Nigeria.
