hmm..........what to say , when I took part 1 spring 2002, there were only roughly 500 candidates

the bottle neck may not come just from the number of people taking the exams.it shall also come from the overseas consultants who are being given the post even without sitting the exams!

it ironical because friends of mine very similar in seniority and training to many cosultants like that,came to UK and underwent training from being a SHO and they were not allowed to sit the exams till they had completed the mandatory training period!! laughable what the college does.

thanks for your statistics sandeep, many of us do not see that part of the exams.

and i have heard that overeas consultants get MRCPsych conferred on them at the end of two years..so that they can continue work here after their contract expires!!

very strange when here we are slogging off for the exams.
