The National Qualification in Journalism – otherwise known as the ‘senior’s exam’ – is the established professional qualification for journalists working in the UK regional press and related sectors.
To pass the NQJ, candidates have to pass each of four separate section – media law and practice, news report, news interview and e-logbooks.
There are three sittings of the exam each year – in March, July and November – with the results usually published 3-4 weeks or so later.
Each set of results is comprehensively covered on HoldtheFrontPage with a complete list of the successful candidates, details of the award-winners for the best papers in each section, and a round-up of the examiners’ comments.
