The 63th National License Examination for Pharmacists


Total 1,614 examinees passed the National License Examination for Pharmacists conducted on January 17.


National Health Professional Licensing Examination Board has announced that 1,614 among 
1,815 who took the state examination passed.


This year’s pass rate was 88.9 percent, which increased by 4.7 percent from previous 
year’s 84.2 percent.

As a result of that, new 1,614 pharmacists have been introduced to the nation this year. Although no graduates will be 
made for upcoming two academic years because of restructuring college curriculums of pharmacy to introduce new 6-year degree program, the national license examination will be conducted during the two years.
