The following notice has been published on the PEB website:
In October 2017 the FD2 Drafting of Specifications question paper will be marked out of 120 instead of 100. This will be advised to candidates on the Instructions to candidates in the examination.
The percentage mark to be awarded will be calculated and notified to candidates. This change has been made to better reflect the demands of the different sections of this particular paper.
The PEB would like to reassure candidates that:
• The format and length of the paper is no different to previous years.
• Candidates are not expected to write more to gain the same outcome that they would have achieved had it been marked out of 100.
• The paper is not harder than previous years.
For the avoidance of doubt all other PEB qualifying examinations will be marked out of 100.
