As of 2017, papers A and B will be the same for all candidates (as has always been the case for papers C and D), i.e. they will no longer be offered in the technical fields chemistry and electricity/mechanics. What can EQE candidates expect from this new format? How should preparation for the EQE be fine-tuned to take this new format into consideration? What insight can be gained from the mock papers? To address these questions, the EPO and the epi have released a video in which Margaret Mackett (European patent attorney and EQE tutor) interviews Nicolas Favre (Chairman of EQE Examination Committee I).
