Note: All queries relating to MICGP Examination results must be directed to email@example.com.
As previously notified, an examination candidate who has been unsuccessful in a module/modules of the MICGP Examination may request feedback on his/her examination performance. Requests must be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the descriptor "MIGCP EXAMINATION FEEDBACK REQUEST" in the subject field.
The deadline for the receipt of formal requests is Friday 18 July 2014.
Candidates will receive formal feedback from the Chair of the Examination Committee in letter format which will be sent by email attachment. This will be issued the week commencing 17 August 2014.
Candidates are not provided with detailed marks of their performance.
The examination results letter details the grade (pass/fail) achieved in each module and indicates the modules outstanding to complete the MICGP Examination. While all results are issued at the same time and every effort is made to ensure that all candidates receive their results on the same day, this cannot be guaranteed. If you do not receive a letter confirming your results by 11 July 2014, please email: email@example.com and include the descriptor "MIGCP EXAMINATION RESULTS REQUEST" in the subject field.
After the issue of results to each candidate, results (pass/fail grade) will be issued to each of the directors of the general practice training schemes.
Once feedback on examination performance has been received by a candidate, no further correspondence regarding examination feedback will take place. Where a candidate wishes to appeal his/her results, they must do so as instructed in the Appeals Procedures laid out in the MICGP Examination Handbook 2013-2014. No appeals will be considered unless carried out in compliance in these procedures.
The calculations of the marks of each candidate are rigorously checked before results are issued. Where a candidate wishes to have the calculation of his/her results rechecked, they must request the recheck in writing within 14 days of the issue of the results.
Submit a request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of receipt of the results letter. Please include "MIGCP EXAMINATION RESULTS RECHECK REQUEST" in the subject field.
The examination office will conduct a check of the detailed marks and related calculations, and will confirm the outcome of this checking process within 14 days.
An appeal process is available to candidates in the following circumstances:
A candidate must write to the chairman of the Examination Committee outlining his/her concerns and formally request feedback on his/her examination performance within 14 days of the posting of the MICGP examination results letter. Where the candidate is dissatisfied with the response of the chairman of the Examination Committee, he/she may lodge an appeal in accordance with the following procedures.
All appeals must be formally addressed to the Chairman of the MICGP Examination Appeals Board using the Appeal Form and accompanied with the fee of €300.00. Examination appeals will not be accepted unless submitted on the appeals application form which is available from the Examinations Office. Applicants must complete and return the formal appeal application within 14 days of follow up correspondence from the chairman of the Examination Committee. Applicants must clearly indicate on the application form the specific grounds on which the appeal is submitted. The chairman of the MICGP Examination Appeals Board will notify the candidate in writing of the decision of the Board. The decision of the MICGP Examination Appeals Board is final.
It is not acceptable for any candidate or representative of a candidate to contact any examiner or officer of the Irish College of General Practitioners about the examination, except in the manner described in these regulations. Such contact may jeopardise the appeal process. See www.icgp.ie/examhandbook for the ICGP Exam Handbook which outlines the examination regulations.
