Examiners' Reports. Membership (Part 3) and Associate-Membership Examinations, April 1988

’I’ve failed four times now, will I ever pass?’ is a cry not infrequently heard in the Examinations Office shortly after the results are announced. For the majority of the 548 candidates who failed the Part 3 examination this year the question ’why?’ will have been uppermost at some point as they travelled the path from realisation to justification in the days following the opening of the ‘dreaded’ results letter. The spectrum of responsibility for failure ranges from ‘I knew I’d chosen the wrong question as soon as I started! ’ to ‘I’m useless, I’ll never pass!’; whereas the, truth of the matter usually lies somewhere between the two, as illustrated in the examiners’ findings detailed below.
