Payment and tenure

How much are examiners paid?

We pay £310 a day, plus receipted expenses up to GMC limits.

New examiners who attend the two mandatory training days receive £155 per day. You will be entitled to stay overnight in Manchester if you would need to leave home before 7 am to attend the test by 8 am.

What is the period of tenure?

A stable, well trained pool of examiners is a great asset so there is no period of tenure. You must be registered with a licence to practise, in good standing with us and be marking consistently.

We review examiners’ performance by a variety of methods.
