Upon enrolment, students will have up to two years to study the BDIA Certificate: Introduction to Dentistry course before they sit the final exam.
The exam is multiple choice format, and students have 90 minutes to complete it. In the latest version of the course there are 11 modules to study and all 11 will be tested on.
Students are required to achieve 60% to pass the exam. A Distinction will be awarded to those achieving 80% or more. Students who successfully complete the exam will receive a certificate by post. Those who fail to pass can re-sit the exam at a cost of £75 for member companies and £150 for non-member companies, but will not be able to achieve a distinction.
BDIA Certificate exams are held every spring and autumn (usually in May and November). During 2018 we will be extending the examination timetable across the year and at some new venues, so watch this space for information.
Students are advised to book at least a month before the exam date to secure a place, please contact us for bookings.
