Please be aware the National Clinical Coding Qualification Examination Quality

Assurance Board have made the decision that from September 2019 there will be no requirement to provide index trails for the first case study in the practical examination paper.

The index trails were originally included in all case studies to assess whether candidates were able to follow the 4 step coding process. On review it was felt that by identifying the correct codes the candidates were already demonstrating this skill and including the index trails did not provide further or enhanced representation of the candidates’ understanding of the principles and use of the classifications.
