Time to rejoice guys, we have done it.

I thank each one of you who wrote to the College individually and persuaded other organisations to write on our behalf to challenge the rules.

I am sure we all can concentrate on exams and all importantly plan our futures'.

Cheers....

FAQ's on the College website still says you can't take exams after Dec 2008, if you are not in training. Don't panic guys!!!!

Grant Fisher from the college has apologised for the confusion via email and informs me that the info would be rectified.

This is great news. At least one doesn't have to give up Staff Grade job for the exams. However I hope to cut all ties with MRCpsych at the end of this year. All I mean is to pass my exams. Well done to all who have made such a decision possible. ;) ;) :)
