Important information for EQE Candidates
IPKat has heard from Katfriends that some EQE candidates in the UK have discovered only this week that their exam location is Munich, not Walsall. The candidates were not sent any specific notification, and noticed it only on logging into the My EQE portal to view a new letter about seat numbering - which plenty of candidates might ignore. If you are sitting EQEs in March, make sure you log in to check your venue details!

There’s an opportunity for every cat

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
