Now confirmed - pre-exam in 2012, it will be multiple choice

The exam committee has made an announcement yesterday on the EPO website that the pre-exam will go ahead in 2012.

The only thing that is not in the REE is the confirmation that the exam will be multiple choice. This was always the most likely because they need to keep the marking workload as low as possible and you need to know very quickly to give you time to prepare for the rest of the EQE.

PCT Applicants Guide now updated

The introduction to the PCT Applicants Guide (International Phase), which explains the law and procedure under PCT, has been updated. As far as I can tell, the only major change is related to e-mails (10.018A) and indicating the basis for amendments (11.047A).

Both could be part of an EQE question.
