EQE 2013

The relevant enrolment dates have now been published:
Pre-Exam enrolment: 1 Apr 2012 - 11 June 2012
Main-Exam enrolment: 1 Apr 2012 - 5 Sept 2012

Don't leave it too late - they are very strict, and late enrolment is never accepted. Further processing, extensions and re-establishment do not apply to these deadlines.

So fill in the forms on time, and make sure the payment is received in time.

If you are enrolling for the Pre-Exam, be aware that you may need to provide additional details about your technical qualifications - see REE

The date of the exams are also published - they will be held a little earlier next year:
Pre-Exam: 25 Feb 2013
Main-Exam: 26 - 28 Feb 2013

Good luck next week, and a final test for the D paper

Good luck to everyone taking an exam next week

Remaining tips:
- get plenty of rest in the weekend

- look through the exams before you start writing to see what you have to do
- if the exam looks different than previous exams (e.g. different number of questions, different order, less prior art, more prior art), don't panic. If you can do the previous exams, then you can do this one
- don't rush madly to get to the end - 3/4 of the points for 3/4 of the exam is also a pass

- if you discuss the exam afterwards, remember that no candidate actually knows the solutions which will be accepted

- take a few days off afterwards, and think about something else ;-)

Just in case you need a last test for D, you will find a multiple choice test on the EQE forum based on an old DI paper which I updated:
