What you need to know about the Prometric exam
Most applicants ask what to expect from the exam. Medical Travel Nigeria will provide you with some general guidance and training materials during your process with us so you shouldn’t worry too much. The pass mark is quite low – about 50%. Generally speaking, majority of the applicants don’t struggle to pass this test.
The Prometric exam is a general exam for your job role. Once your licensing application is underway, you will be provided with a code to book a slot for the exam. There are various test centres to choose from and likely there is one local to you, but do be prepared for a small amount of travel if you don’t live in/near a large city.
You will pay for the Prometric exam yourself. Your Saudi license is valid for 2 years.
