RCGP and BAPIO collaborate to address pass rate discrepancies


Yes @8:44pm many candidates still write me asking whether to fork out another £800 to appeal a fail by one mark out of 117 marks. Without access to video station evidence there is no point in appealing as it will always be one person's word against another. Such a waste of subsidised tax payers' 3 year NHS training to then release a GP trainee at the end for failing by 1 subjective mark out of 117 so he can never continue to help out his training practice as a locum, salaried or GP partner af a time when 60 million UK patients need GPs who are dropping out like flies, retiring early, emigrating, going private, changing careers to banking, going into pharma, or just quitting as theirs is a secondary home income.
