One mark (+1) will be awarded for each correct answer:
No mark will be deducted for an incorrect answer.
Marks will not be awarded for answers in excess of the number required (eg. where two answers are given in response to a one from five question, no marks will be awarded for that question) or where the answer sheet is spoiled and unreadable by the optical marking scanner.
From 2002/2 the MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination has been criterion referenced and will assess a candidate's performance in relation to an external standard of performance (pass mark) set by the examiners.
