RCGP and BAPIO collaborate to address pass rate discrepancies


If the RCGP wants to do anything positive is good news and such measures should be welcome with cautious optimism to put an end to this disgraceful matter. Having said that out right refusal to video the exam for appeals is highly suspicious and reasons are obvious to a person with average intelligence. Surely there may be worrying reasons to consciously deprive transparency of the conduct of the exam to outside world. Is it the major inconsistencies examiners demonstrate during their assessment? Are the candidates paying the ultimate price for examiners failures? These are valid and common sense questions RCGP may need to answer. In my opinion, deliberate deprivation of evidence for appeals may not reflect well on the RCGPs image as a fair organisation which is serious about finding solutions to this disgraceful situation which has been dragging for so long!!
