    ADVICE TO AMC MCQ CANDIDATES FOR THE AMC 2006E MCQ EXAMINATION – HELD ON SATURDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 2006

    On Saturday 18th November 2006 a major computer problem in the Part 1 of the AMC 2006E MCQ examination led to the cancellation of the Part 1 session of the MCQ examination. The Part 2, which did not have any technical problems with the delivery platform, was administered to all candidates.

    The results for the AMC 2006E MCQ examination held on Saturday 18th November 2006 have been statistically calculated on the basis of the completed Part 2 of the examination and extrapolated for the whole examination.




    Where the calculated result is a 'PASS' – the candidates concerned will be deemed to have passed the AMC 2006E MCQ examination and will be allowed to proceed to the AMC clinical examination.




    If the calculated result is a 'FAIL' – the candidates who consider that they were disadvantaged because of attempting Part 2 only, will be given two alternatives to improve their score:


    1. They can opt to sit a new Part 1 session (125 items) without an examination fee on Friday 23rd March 2007 and have their result determined on the basis of their completed Part 2 and the

    new Part 1.

    OR


    2. They can have the result of the AMC 2006E MCQ

    set aside and attempt a complete AMC MCQ examination [Part 1 and Part 2] without an examination fee at one of the four AMC MCQ sessions to be conducted in 2007 (March, May, September or November 2007). The format of the complete AMC MCQ examination [Part 1 and Part 2] will be the standard format for the 2007 MCQ examinations.

    For candidates who select Option 1, the date of the Part 1 examination session will be advised with the result letter.

    For candidates who select Option 2, the closing date for the March examination will be extended to 12th January 2007, only a limited number of places are available.

    Candidates who do not meet the pass criteria in the scored Part 2 of the AMC 2006E MCQ examination will be sent a 'special application form' with the result letter for options 1 and 2 above, in order to indicate which option they wish to choose.

    Candidates are requested not to telephone the AMC Secretariat as this will delay the preparation of despatch of results. Results of the AMC 2006E MCQ examination, together with Candidate Performance Feedback sheets, will be posted to candidates on 11th December and the list of successful candidates placed on the AMC website on 13th December 2006.
