Gazette 21 July 2016

Education Committee has recently made changes to the General Regulations for the First and Second Public Examination to the effect that candidates for the First Public Examination will have an entitlement to be assessed according to the regulations that were in force at the time they were taught for up to three terms (i.e. one year) after the original assessment date.

We have taken the opportunity to clarify in the regulations for the First BM Part I that candidates will have the same entitlement, as this examination has the status of a First Public Examination. We have also specified that there will be the same entitlement for the First BM Part II, which is not covered in the General Regulations for the First and Second Public Examination.

See the Medical Sciences Divisional Board notice in the Gazette for further details.
