Inform EBU about your candidate details

reliable results

For a reliable and comparative analysis of the results we must be informed about the accurate and valid candidate details.

Before registering please read the information below.

  • Fill in the personal information. In case the registration is submitted by a third party, the registrant is responsible for providing the correct candidate details. Accurate information is a prerequisite for successful login at the Pearson VUE website.
  • Register yourself or your candidates based on the status, resident or certified urologist, as applicable at the time of the assessment.
  • Complete the payment by credit card (if applicable).
  • Submit the registration and receive an automated confirmation of registration by email.
In the week of the assessment each candidate receives a personal confirmation of participation by email from the EBU that includes a link to the Pearson VUE website and instructions about booking and taking the test.
This assessment is taken through the Pearson VUE website. Each candidate must have, or create, a personal Pearson VUE account, AND schedule the test through the Pearson VUE website. The assessment can be done at any time on either day. We do not define restrictions as to where or when the test is taken but some organisers may have set certain restrictions for taking the assessment.

Participation: Is reserved for registered candidates. In case of irregularities we reserve the right to annul the result of a candidate in question
Duration: The assessment can only be accessed once and must be completed within 2 hours.
The results will be available in our examination management system Examfolio. About 3 weeks after the assessment candidates, organisers and national associations (as applicable) receive an email from Examfolio (info@examfolio.com). There is no pass/fail mark. For the statistical analysis the scores of all candidates are combined. Individual scores for each topic are presented alongside the group results and, if applicable, of various peer groups, allowing for a comparison among different groups.
Candidates who completed the assessment receive a certificate of participation by email. Participation qualifies for 10 credits and EU-ACME members have their account updated automatically.

  • Candidate details: The registrant provides accurate information about the candidate. All information regarding the assessment is sent directly to the candidate's personal email address.
