Exam information:

There are two exams included within the five-day M_o_R course:

  1. The foundation exam takes place on the Wednesday usually at 3pm. It is an hour-long multiple choice, closed book exam that consists of 75 questions. Five of these questions are ‘trial questions’ that will not contribute to your overall score, so the exam is marked out of 70. In order to pass, a score of 35 or more must be achieved.
  2. The practitioner exam takes place on the Friday and is an open-book exam. Only the M_o_R guidance book and part A of the ABC guidance is allowed. Annotations and page markers to find useful pages quickly are allowed but students are not to attach any other material into the book. The exam is three hours with a 50% pass mark.
