The verified self-assessment score will impact your overall ST3 Obstetrics and Gynaecology application score. Completion is mandatory.

The application for ST3 Obstetrics and Gynaecology contains a number of self-assessment questions where you will need to select the most accurate statement. Completion is mandatory.

The resulting scores will impact on your overall score and on your ability to progress to the next recruitment stage. You must score a minimum of 10 marks in the self-assessment section of your application in order to progress to the evidence verification stage. Self scoring below 10 marks will result in your application being longlisted out and you will not proceed any further in the process.

You will need to upload evidence to support every domain where you have scored yourself greater than 0 between the specified window (see recruitment timelines).

Self-assessed domains

The self-assessment element will cover the below domains. 

  1. Postgraduate Medical Qualifications (do not score the same qualification in more than one domain).
  2. Quality Improvement Projects (QiP) as a postgraduate in the last 3 working years.
  3. Research.
  4. Teaching (excluding clinical supervision).
  5. Academic Publications within the last 5 working years (excluding posters and published abstracts).
  6. Presentations and Poster Presentations in last 3 working years (Excluding QiP presentations).


All marks greater than zero which you award yourself must be supported by a piece or pieces of evidence that can be verified by assessors. This means any claims made need to be backed up by at least one piece of documentation. Details of acceptable supporting evidence per domain will be provided once further guidance is issued.

Supporting evidence is uploaded to the Self-Assessment Evidence Portal.


Once reviewed by a clinician, your verified self-assessment scores will be released via Qpercom. There will be an opportunity for appeal. Details of the appeal process, including the dates of the appeal window, will be published once available.
