Is it true that theory marks are counted in the overall result?

Some body told me that they got 10 each in PMP and IPA but failed the overall exam!

So how could one pass the PMP and IPA but still goes on to fail the over all exam?

What would be the point of passing someone in the written just to fail them even though they meet the standard in the clinical. Did you see the feedback from this person? Is there any possibility they were not exactly truthful?

Its written in the college guidance documents (Orange pages) as wellwhich they sent us with the clinical exam details.

its not written in any college booklet they sent us.u can also browse online the regulations of exams.there is no mention that written would be considered for clinical component.

Perhaps it happened sometime in the past i guess.

MRCPSYCH PART II - CLINICAL EXAMINATION PACKAGE usually sent by David Flowers. (The one I have is from spring 2006).

See under guidance to candidates for PMP and IPA.

Look under the section IPA and its the point no: 8 (1) says:

CANDIDATES WHO PASS THE CLINICAL ( IPA AND PMP) BUT FAIL OVERALL MAY ASK FOR FEEDBACK ON THEIR PERFORMANCE.

From a document explaining the regulations, on a website for people working in Ireland (Irishpsychiatry.something or something like it)

'Both parts of the MRCPsych examination consist of a written component and a clinical

component (Table 2). A recent development has been the necessity to obtain a satisfactory

mark in the written components to be allowed to progress to the clinical components. While

this may disadvantage some candidates who tend to compensate for lacklustre written papers

with scintillating oral presentations, it means that if you are allowed to progress you have the

relief of knowing you have passed all of the written section and need now only concentrate on

performing adequately in the vivas.'
