Special course on Paper C (Opposition) for "multiple resitters"
Friday, 7 and Saturday, 8 December 2007, Strasbourg
Please note that early enrolment is advisable.
This course is intended in principle only for candidates who have failed Part C (Opposition) of the European qualifying examination more than once. The course is motivated by the realisation that many candidates are insufficiently prepared, lacking the knowledge and skills that this paper demands. Candidates having failed this paper only once will be put on a waiting list, in case places are still available.
The course aims are to make candidates aware of the preparation, knowledge and skills they really need in order to pass the paper, and to help them attain the required level.
The course will examine the principles behind the paper and the legal, technical and practical problems it has posed in the past. It will also introduce candidates to useful examination techniques.
Work will be done in small groups, to ensure proper dialogue between tutor and participant. Participants must have a good command of an EPO official language (English, French or German). If fewer than ten people enrol for one of these languages, the course is likely to be held in English.
To optimise programme organisation it would be helpful if participants when enrolling could include a copy of at least one Paper C that they have failed, preferably the C-2007 paper. This will make it possible to define general problem areas and offer suitable solutions. Protection of personal data is guaranteed. Unfortunately it is not possible to provide personal tutoring on this paper.
Course participants should not also apply for Part C of the ABC Preparatory Course in November 2007, because there is a considerable syllabus overlap.
The course starts at 09.00 hrs on Friday, 7 December 2007, and ends at 17.00 hrs on Saturday, 8 December 2007.

Applications to CEIPI will be treated on a first come, first served basis. If the course is oversubscribed, names will be put on a waiting list.
The closing date for receipt of all applications is 1 October 2007.
The course fee is EUR 600. The price includes lunch on both days.
