2017 Oral Board of Examination Results
Forty-one candidates participated in the 2017 Oral Board process, an increase from 30 candidates in 2016. For 34 of the candidates, it was their first appearance before the Oral Board, while 7 were returning candidates.
Thirty-four licences were recommended by the board members, representing 83 % of candidates. In seven instances, a licence was not recommended by the board.
Most candidates were well prepared and demonstrated all of the competencies being assessed.
Among the candidates for whom no licence was recommended:
- 3 exhibited weakness across all competencies;
- 4 exhibited weakness primarily on judgment-based questions.
