I remember in the past there were all the previous Mrcpsych past papers as pdf files somewhere in this website but now I am unable to find them! Does anybody know where I can find them? :-?

Free past paper collections will be back in a new format later this month. Until recently there weren't enough recalled questions of the new format to make it worthwhile compiling them into a document.

There aren't any free papers and there aren't any papers that are charged for either. Unfortunately I've not had time to compile past questions from the new MRCPsych into PDF files from the previous feedback threads following past exams (but there aren't that many recalled questions yet). Everything is freely available in the forum. When the new website is launched in June there will be free downloads, providing people post the questions from the upcoming exams.

You should also go through the locked boards for the old MRCPsych exams for EMI threads as these tend to be repeated by the College

To go over all these past paper questions, the plan is to use the Q&A section of the website, starting with Papers 1 and 2 in September. Questions will be posted regularly which members will be requested to answer with references. The best answers will be selected. As a community we should be able to get through all the past paper questions before each exam.

The important point to note is that you'll learn much more by researching the answer yourself and posting your thoughts than just reading what others think is the right answer. The question bank is very small at present so expect lots of new questions in each exam.

If anyone wants to start early with posting questions, feel free to start. You can also use Q&A to clarify any knowledge gaps you may have.

MUMBAI: Tens of thousands of Indians who went to the United States to cash in on the health industry boom have been served a blow as the federal government has decided against allowing Indians to sit for the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE), a licentiate test without which students cannot practice in the US.

The decision was taken by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy, a national body, reasoning that it found "systematic and methodical sharing and distribution of recalled questions by significant numbers of graduates of programmes in the affected countries as well as several exam preparation companies specifically targeted to these graduates". Apart from Indians, students from Pakistan, the Philippines and Egypt have also been barred from taking the exam.

"The federation recognizes the significant consequences of this policy decision but feels that it needs to be made clear to all candidates that the federation will not tolerate security breaches," it stated in a notice sent out to all the candidates who had registered to take the NPTE. Candidates will now have to wait for a year, which is when the federation is likely to introduce a more secured version of the test.

A parent from Mumbai whose daughter is enrolled with the University of Pittsburg said the US government's decision was not fair as they had found no evidence against Indian students

sharing the questions with their friends.

Even in the communication released to students, the federation stated, "Evidence was obtained through extensive forensic analyses of exam performances as well as a variety of legal actions brought by the federation in the United States and abroad. Most notably, this includes the raid and seizure of evidence from the St Louis Review Center in Manila, Philippines, and its alleged owners/operators, Gerard L Martin, Roger P Tong-An and Carlito Balita, which revealed the widespread sharing of hundreds of live test items."

Announced on Sunday, the decision caused ripples among the student community, some of whom are speaking of filing a case suit in an American court.

"This unfortunate news has disheartened me and shattered my dreams. What should I do next? I am not able to find any way," noted Vijayta on a blog that has several students agitated with the United States government's decision.

MRCPsych is not a licensate exams.

Royal college itself has published books on the exams and has held courses for the exam in the past.

I wonder what will become of the MLEs...
